  1. Congrats on scoring a 5900x. Most Switches will support any speed up to what they are rated at. So most Consumer Switches over the last almost decade are Gigabit (1 gbps) switches, but support Ethernet (10 mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 mbps) no flawlessly. Now we are starting to see multi-gig consumer switches that support 2.5 gbps and 5 gbps on top of those previous speeds all using copper. Copper Ethernet through your typical 8-pin RJ-45 port can reach 10 gbps in some cases, mostly in data center with short runs, but normally when you want 10 gbps o
  2. 10 Gig not cheap, I went with the Unifi SW-48 to get two 10 Gig SFP ports to connect my main PC and my NAS then have 48 ports to do the rest of my eventual house with no issues. I just picked up some Mellanox ConnectX-3 cards off eBay that came with 5m DAC cables since I didn't need longer than that. I thought about the 16 XG like you got, but I only had the two devices I want on 10 Gig for now and figured I can always just expand later with some little Microtik 10 Gig Switches or a used 16 XG.
  3. Let's go hard, gotta lot of distance to make up with OCN.
  4. I'm currently looking at storage upgrades for mine, at this point new Threadripper also looking mighty fine...
  5. Thanks as well, added to OP. I also removed the estimated PPD numbers since those can change anyway with units and it's free PPD for the winner anyway.
  6. Source: https://videocardz.com/press-release/ultra-high-speed-hdmi-2-1-cables-now-available I'm happy to see HDMI making progress, but it just seems so slow and barely keeping up with graphics accelerators and display technology. This generation did bring a bump from 18 Gbps to 48 Gbps which is pretty nice to support 4K 120 Hz and 8K 120 Hz, but also needs a new cable called "Ultra High Speed" (referred to as 48G during development). This does put HDMI 2.1 ahead of DP 1.4, but still well behind DP 2.0. We are seeing some increased testing though which is

  8. Pretty much yeah, it lets you have a bunch of inputs, including some virtual ones and then some virtual outputs and your hardware outputs and you can map the inputs to any outputs, apply effects, single out audio from certain applications for recording/streaming.

  10. Well if the lockdown persists in to the new year for a good while, I was thinking of making some extensions with built-in voltage monitoring to a Arduino.
  11. Hmm, so software reporting could just be wonky, or the voltage measuring chips and sense resistors are not playing nicely with high current draw parts and their accuracy is off.
