  1. After checking very carefully, one of the cables was problematic and limited the speed to 100Mbps. I tried using that cable alone and sometimes the speed was lower, as much as less than 10Mbps... I will replace it soon with a new cable. Thank you all for your help. Definitely something I learned from.
  2. I will order a CAT6 cable and check. It's probably a light pysical damage with the cable (Nothing visible but one of the cables I'm using is fairly old). I hope getting a new cable will fix this issue. Thanks for the help. I will update once I get the new cable.
  3. I'm using two 5 meters cables... Would you suggest to get a 10 meters CAT6 cable or at least 2 CAT6 5 meters cables?

  5. It is. But why is that? Everything should be fine from my perspective... It's not the PC but something with the connection.
  6. Hi. I am moving to the top floor in my house and am setting up a jank ethernet connection by connecting two cables through the window. The cable that's going down from the roof is a little squished by the windows (don't know if that's a problem). In any case, the cables i'm using are CAT5e and the adaptor between them is CAT6 and the speed I should get is 200Mbps but am only getting a little less than 100Mbps... What can cause that? How can this be fixed?
  7. Here's a better comparison... https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-860-evo-2-5--sata-iii-1tb-mz-76e1t0b-am/ https://www.samsung.com/us/business/products/computing/ssd/client/860-evo-1tb-mz-76e1t0e/
  8. Can't seem to understand the difference between this: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T?th=1 and this: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-Inch-SATA-Internal-MZ-76E1T0E/dp/B0793BVTHT Different model, same specs, different price?
  9. Considering I buy a pair of 6XX, less than 150$ for the amp
  10. I see. Do you think getting HD 6XX would provide a much nicer sound or not a big difference? I have bought the 599 very recently... If you think I should get the 6XX, which DAC&Headphone AMP should I get for it?
  11. Thanks for the answer! Could you recommend the best Headphone AMP & DAC I can get for this future setup?
  12. That's what I think. And I don't hear any static noise because of using the mobo (I read online that this could be a problem sometimes). Thanks for your response. Hope some more people will share their thoughts.
  13. Hi, I have recently bought the Sennheiser HD 599 and I am very pleased with the sound quality. I connect it directly to my mobo Asus ROG Z270E. I am also using the headphones with my turntable via the mobo's LINE IN and it works great. My question is if I should get a DAC / Amp (or both) at all? considering I am listening to records as well. Would that make a big difference or a noticeable difference at all in this case? If I should get one, what is your recommendation? Thanks.
  14. I think the MSI GTX 1060 ARMOR 6GB OC should be fine for you.
  15. I think the build is pretty good but you can get another mobo for this non-K processor. You mentioned that you want to run AAA games at 4k/60fps. You can get a 1080Ti instead of a 1080 (or just wait a little longer for the new NVIDIA GPUs) for better 4k performance but, it's still not really enough for a stable 60fps on most AAA games, I believe, without lowering the graphics settings.
