  1. Hello Folks, Been in discussion with my DAW manufacturer and my audio interface manufacturer. Been Discussing the usefulness is assigning CPU cores to specific programs to stop them from interfering with each other during load. Per my DAW Manufacturer: "It might also allow Mixbus to run at a lower buffersize reliably, if the cores are more directly connected to the soundcard interrupts. We use some of those 'hacks' in our high-end console systems." So my question is for you the brain trust. Is there a way to figure out which cpu cores are most directly conne
  2. I have some small heatsinks that I can put over the controller to dissipate heat passively I know some portions of the m.2 run better a little warmer. I think I'll just go with the ones that are built all in one for ease cause either can't seem to find ones that are adhesive on both sides of the pad. At least its not specified if they are.
  3. Just to note this drive is not for gaming its for audio editing and storage. Im reading and writing large session files to this drive and I notice as I go along that the performance drops a bit.
  4. I have a asus prime 370z and my secondary m.2 drive has been getting a little hot. Was thinking of putting on some thermal pads as this one doesn't have a heating like my main drive closer that shares it with the chipset. Any recommendations? I do have some small heat sinks leftover from another project aluminum finned that I would like to put on top for better spread us there any pad that is double sided sticky? Or should I go for one of those prefabbed ones made for m.2s? Possibly replace it with a thermal grizzly pad as im happy with their paste performance on my cpu and gpu Let
