  1. I would like to hit 10GbE in the future and the longest runs are only about 125ft. I think 'unshielded' is best just because of hassle of terminating the fully shielded
  2. On Amazon Cat6a comes in UTP, U/FTP, S/UTP, F/UTP and SFTP Most of the 1000ft spools look like UTP
  3. Ok, I'll just check the reviews on Amazon also Ok so for 23awg get 23awg ends and for 24awg get 24awg ends? Do you think I need shielded? I feel like that's kind of overkill for a home environment
  4. Ok I will run Cat6a. Got any suggestions for cable brands?
  5. I am looking at wiring my new house for ethernet (walls are open). For regular ethernet jacks around the house this is my plan: Punch-down Keystone Wall Plate > Cat6E Cable > Patch Panel with Pass-through Couplers (not punch down style) > Patch Cat6 cable > Switch For WiFi Access Points this is my plan: AP > Cat6E Cable > Patch Panel with Pass-through Couplers (not punch down style) > Patch Cat6 cable > PoE Injector > Patch Cat6 cable > Switch I am not sure if this is too complicated or if it will work fine My mai
  6. @Mark Kaine @ShrimpBrime Just bought the RAM kit. Thanks for everyone's help!
  7. @ShrimpBrime @Mark Kaine Is it wise to buy the memory now at $136.99 when normal MSRP is $158.99 or is it better to wait until Cyber Monday to see if it gets discounted?
  8. I think I might just get the 16GB because even though my use case is gaming / 3D modeling I think I can get away with 16GB plus I honestly don't think its worth so much extra to me This is the set I'm set on: CMW16GX4M2Z3600C14 The price is pretty good at $136.99 So hopefully after selling my old memory it should be almost even for pricing. I know the capacity is half now but I'm honestly just happy that the computer will finally work without blue screening.
  9. Yea that's what I thought when I saw it. Kind of expensive... maybe wait until Black Friday / Cyber Monday? If not when I sell the kits I have now for about $75ea, the total damage is about $100 which isn't terrible. Definitely not great though.
  10. Thanks for the B-Die website it was really helpful! I found this set: CMW32GX4M2Z3600C14 Does it look ok?
  11. I dropped the total capacity down to 16GB but that would mean I would need to buy 2 kits again which G.Skill support advised me not to do.
  12. @ShrimpBrime This is what I found on PCPartPicker for the Corsair RAM sets. They only have 1 set of RAM that has a latency of less than 18??
  13. Do you know of any Corsair RGB sets that work well? I know this is kind of dumb but I have a Corsair 220T AirFlow case and if I'm going to buy a new set of RAM I'd rather just have all the RGB sync together rather than using multiple different programs to control it.
  14. So is my best bet just to sell these memory kits and to get an "AMD-certified" kit? Should I go 3600 or 3200? I honestly just want the system to run stable so I wouldn't want to mess with manual OC settings since I basically know nothing about OC'ing.
  15. My CPU is stock other than just the XMP profile being enabled.
