  1. Hi Folks i am looking for a solution that will allow me to keep my PC (main unit) about 20m (measured as the distance the cable has to travel) away from where I am sitting. The seating area will only have the keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers and atleast 3 USB ports. The idea is to keep the main unit in a server Rack away from seating area. Most solutions i have read about including thunderbolt or USB 3.2 etc do not meet the cable distance requirement. The solution that meets my cable distance requirement has to involve a Fiber cable or CAT 6 network solution, but could not find anything
  2. Wow so many responses.. but sorry dont understand some of the lingo. Thanks for the guidance. Before i go ahead i will give full config - Motherboard - Gigabyte Sniper 5 Intel Z87 - CPU - i7 4700K - RAM - 4 x 8GB - HDD - 8 x 6TB Toshiba enterprise drive - SSD - 2 x 256GB SSD - 10G network Card (Intel) - Corsair H100 AIO - 3 120mm case Fans to cool the Harddisks - 2 80mm case fans as exhaust (server 4U chasis) -650W Corsair PSU - OS - TRUE NAS (FreeBSD based) Ok now what i did is reduce CPU multiplier to 30 from 35. But it does
  3. Hi Folks I am using my old motherboard/CPU for running a local NAS. However its power consumption at the wall socket under idle conditions is about 150W. I brought this down to 127W by switching off Audio and the Killer ethernet controller. But i want to bring it down further. I was never keen on overclocking so dont understand the intricacies or combinations involved in that. I have heard that undervolting and marginally reducing CPU clock can lead to significant savings in Power and Thermals. Any ideas or suggestions on what all parameters i can adjust to reduce the po
  4. Found a partial solution to the problem. Based on advice i tried the upgrde of the BIOS from the first version that supported 5000 series processory and from there upgrading each version of BIOS incrementally. The following was the results of my testing starting from the oldest version of the BIOS that supports 5000 series CPU to the latest version. 3.4 - worked for non XMP profile. Does not allow saving of XMP profile shows D0 error and reboots and then forces the DRAM to auto mode 3.61 - works and seems stable for XMP and Non XMP profile 3.8 - works and seems stable for XMP and No
  5. Just to update on the issue: I took the motherboard back to the dealer for testing and he tested with a 3600 series processor and there was no power recycle. But the light issue was there. So he tested his CPU 3600 series on a new Taichi X570 motherboard that he had. On that I noticed that the power and reset light comes on only after the power button is pressed and stays on till the BIOS screen comes or the systems starts to boot and then it switches off. But on my board this was not happening the lights stayed off. Please note i have tested my CPU and memory config
  6. Yes the digits start when i start the motherboard and it goes off after the POST screen comes up
  7. Thanks for your post. I have done that and more (Cleared BIOS, Reset BIOS setting, Downgraded BIOS, upgraded BIOS). But it does not help. The power and reset buttons are to be on when i on the PSU and should go off after the POST is done. But in my case it does not come on at all when i on the PSU and then there is the power cycling that is happening.
  8. I did that. I downgraded the BIOS to a lower version also. Did the clear CMOS switch thing also. Before i go further let me specify my config - AMD Ryzen 5600x - ASROCK Taichi x570 - Crucial Ballistix RGB 3600 MHz DDR4 DRAM - 32GB - Corsair MP600 512 GB SSD - WD Black 750 1TB SSD - Gigabyte 3060TI Gaming OC graphics card - Lian li Galahad 360 AIO - Corsair RM650 PSU Exceptt for the PSU all other components are brand new. The taichi motherboard has a 8PIN and a 4 pin CPU power connector. My PSU does not have a 4 pin CPU power connector and fr
  9. Hi Folks I have just bought a new ASrock Taichi X570 motherboard. Since the bios that came with the motherboard did not support the 5000 series chips i ugpraded the bios to 4.0 (latest) and completed the full setup. Initially no problem noticed. But now the following issues are happening. - The motherboard when i switch it on (just the PSU) the RGB leds of the motherboard come on but the light of the onboard power button and reset button do not come on. - If press the power button, the mother starts the post process and then suddenly reboots (before even showing the ASROCK logo)
  10. Thanks will need to figure out how to fit this in a Mini ITX case
  11. Hi folks I am planning to build a SFF gaming PC with a AMD B550 motherboard. But i also need 10Gbe network connectivity in the PC. The only way i can do this is by putting a PCIE card (10Gbe network card) , But the mini ITX boards have only 1 PCIE X16 slot which will be occupied by the Graphics Card. One other option is to use a PCIE splitter which cases like Sliger SM580 support. Here the PCIEx16 slot is divided into 2 x8 slots. From what i have read the performance difference in graphics by running it in a x8 slot is not that significant. But using this feature requi
  12. Yes I am the original owner. If you mean have i removed the heatsink and put new thermal paste on the GPU. Yes have done that. What i dont get is if the card is down why does it work perfectly in Ubuntu ? Maybe is should try a graphics loaod test in ubuntu and see if that is the issue,
  13. Hi Folks I have a graphics card - ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II. This card has served me faithfully for 6 years now. But now it seems to have started showing its age. But i am majorly confused on its behaviour. The following are the problems faced and how i resolved them. All these issues have come in the past one year. 1. Problem - The PC keeps power cycling Solved By - Removing and reseating graphics card. This happened on an average once a month and would work fine after i reseated the graphics card 2. Problem - The PC keeps power cycling Solved
  14. Hi Folks Sorry guys but the heat issue in ubiquity products is worrying. I happened upon the internal pictures of a Unifi Dream machine (see attached image or refer link for whole FCC document) and i find the thermal dissipation design very poor. This one image tells the whole story. Maybe I am wrong, but I am having trouble figuring out what kind of airflow was conceptualized for moving the heat out of the box, considering that under load this CPU can reach temperatures of 80-90 degrees. Some issues i see 1. The outer box holding the whole thing together has only vents (and that too tiny
  15. Thanks for the prompt response, but even on ubiquiti own forums, you get to see complaints of failure, usually of the power supply, but what is worrying is usually the failures are within 2 years. And from what i understand from the forums, though Ubiquiti has made the power supplies replacement, its still a failure point and the power supplies dont come cheap
