  1. Hi all, I have been trying to get my head around this with online articles etc and would appreciate some help. I am trying to setup wake on LAN for my home PC. The reason for this is so I can use Parsec, and utilise my powerful PC at home for gaming/heavier workloads whilst I am anywhere with a decent internet connection. Current setup is: Linksys Velop router -> Huawei AX3 router -> PC. I have setup wake on lan in the bios, and in windows. I have setup port forwarding on the Linksys router, but am getting lost with how to tie this up to the 2nd router
  2. Thanks all for the replies, I hadn’t considered whether it had come out of a prebuilt, that could make some sense with a bulk load of CPU’s from an oem. The PNY and Zotac options is what I found too but like you say it is only mentioned on a couple of pages in the whole of the web so it seems very rare/not mentioned, sold individually etc. I did try and identify it in Nvidia control panel, user benchmark and a couple of other ways and it just states Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 etc, I’ll give GPU-Z a go. Thanks again, Mark
  3. Hi all, I'm trying to identify this graphics card. I know its a GTX 770 2GB, but can't figure out the brand or confirm model number etc. The closest GPU seems to be the PNY XLR8 GTX 770 Enthusiast Edition - VCGGTX7702XPB https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/pny-xlr8-gtx-770-enthusiast-edition.b1957 It just seems odd that my one doesn't have any stickers/PNY labelling and doesn't have Nvidia on the PCB by the 16x connector. I'm asking as I'm looking to sell it but I bought it used and don't have any info on it - checked the listing and it basically said Geforce GTX 770,
  4. I posted the below, however edit: I spoke too soon, and in the typical way it was fine, and then I posted saying it was fine, then I could only go up to 140mbps - not 150mbps. Its weird as my phone, on 5GHz and testing wifi speed shows in excess of 300mbps wifi speed, then the Quest 2 which actually has wifi 6, theoretical speed of up to 1200mbps (whereas my phones theoretical speed is lower) varies and this evening could only get 140mbps in the app virtual desktop. This was more than enough - and the game was still stable, but I just can't understand it. Also there are no apps and no way I ca
  5. Thank you - So the headset is capable of 80Mhz, but I'll try it on 40/20 and see what happens. I'll also try my routers on different channels. In terms of VR, I find that Virtual Desktop (when I don't have one fault or another) can work. I have played hours where the spikes have been a couple of ms and unnoticeable (especially with my latest setup which has a very stable latency), where I have had a constant FPS, and where the picture is comparible to the link cable, however I do agree that another wireless solution may be better. If you were to go onto the Virtual Desktop discord,
  6. Thank you for the responses. So both routers are setup where I use my headset, with one connected to the internet with ethernet, through a switch then to the pc and the other not connected to the internet and connected to the pc by the usb cable and ethernet adapter. I haven't checked whether each router is on separate channels, however each router has the 2.4 and 5ghz split, with different names for each. That way I know only the headset is connected to my 5ghz band on the router which goes to the pc by usb. Latency wise, both are roughly the same with around 5-8ms net
  7. Hi all, I have an Oculus Quest 2, and am trying to run it wirelessly with my PC using an app called virtual desktop. My main router connected to my service provider is near where I use the Quest 2, however my PC is upstairs. I have run 2 ethernet cables (both cat 6 shielded/armoured, outdoor uv) from my study and accross the back wall of my house and back in downstairs to where I use the headset. I use one cable for transferring a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and sound and use Ibik Aster to use the PC as two seperate computers. The other ethernet cable connects between a 1gbps switch
  8. After some reading re LLC, I set it to lvl 4 so that there wasn't such a huge difference between what I was setting and what I was actually seeing. So I did some further testing at a CPU ratio of 49 and managed to get down to 1.285vcore set and this provided 1.28vcore. This was stable, however when I went down to 1.28v it failed an XTU stress test. So I have upped it back to 1.29v to be sure and this still tests as stable. I then tried 5.0GHz, and it was more stable however I had to set vcore to around 1.35v to prevent an immediate fail in XTU but it still was not stabl
  9. Thank you for the response. I have now updated the bios, I haven't yet had the chance to test if that has helped at all-the bios version did state the update should help with stability but I'll test tomorrow. LLC is set to auto I wouldn't want to run vcore any higher than necessary but conflicting forums/advice say that up to 1.4v at an absolute max could be okay although may degrade CPU slightly quicker, is that right? The 5ghz profile seemed to manage with HWinfo measuring 1.365vcore. When setting my vcore to the 1.385v it was just to provide the example/test as to wh
  10. I found this which might prove more reliable although I haven't purchased it/tried it. I might consider it if I build another STX PC.

  11. Hi all, I am trying to overclock a 7700k. I have loaded the 5GHz profile on my motherboard and it works, and is stable, but the temps are peaking up to mid 90's in VR. I am aware standard Bios profile can add too much voltage so I have followed this in the hope of lowering the temps: https://edgeup.asus.com/2017/kaby-lake-overclocking-guide/3/ I have managed to get to 4.9GHz all core stable with 'Additional Turbo Mode CPU core Voltage' (VCore) set to 1.35v - however the actual VCore reading during a XTU stress test is 1.312v. Temps are around low 80's at full core load on XTU
  12. Hi all, Not sure if this is in the correct section so apologies if not. I have tried to find something that would clarify or help but can't quite get the answer I need. I am looking to get a pair of glasses which I can use as a computer screen. I don't need them to be smart/interactive etc but if they are then that would be fine. I have a decent PC which I use for a cycling programme called Zwift and have been considering getting a bigger monitor - potentially 4K (my current monitor is 19"). Does anyone know/can recommend a pair of glasses which can be used
  13. Thanks for confirming, I do have a graphics card, i guess I could still just go for the 3770k and leave at stock for a bit more performance, the 3770k has 8 threads/ 4 cores and it’s clock speed is the same as a Xeon e3 1275 v2 (the best my motherboard states it will support) looking at the performance difference-is there one between the 3770k and this Xeon?
  14. Sorry all, yes it’s the H61m-itx and is 2nd and 3rd gen compatible. so do we think a 3770k could be OC’d?
  15. Hi all, I have an AS Rock H61m-itx board with a 3470 cpu. I am considering getting a 3770k but it’s only really worth it if I can overclock. I haven’t overclocked before so am a bit of a noob, I know what to do, but can it be done with my motherboard? I understand I could buy the cpu and test it, but to save £100 I’m trying to confirm first. I have uploaded a pic of my bios, which has the option to take ratio off auto but can’t test with my current cpu. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
