    28 core ITX from ASRock Rack EPC621D4I-2M

    . Adding a GPU means one is left with 1GbE networking. eh, no, the virtuallink on the 20x0 nvidia cards are full blown USB C so it's really 5gbe networking.(and was already so when this was written) Oh and there are USB A 5gbit adapters too, the QNAP UC5G1T doesn't have a captive cable and...

    USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A to Type C adapter performance

    There absolutely is a specific cable for Gen2. Gen 1 and up cables must contain an eMarker IC telling the word what it is capable of. USB TypeC doesn't work with unsure "old quality cables" vs "some crappy ones" no, Type-C has a cable specification with this table: Or check Benson's relevant...

    Concept Chimney - 18L dual 360 rad / dual graphics cards mATX case

    It seems to me the radiator on the left won't get any air or if it does it'll be hot from the video cards.

    USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A to Type C adapter performance

    /r/usbchardware mod here, somewhat a walking USB C compendium The reason a USB C-C cable can only do 5gbps is typically because it's longer than what the standard allows for 10gbps, so no, you won't get 10gbps over it. And both Gen 1 and 2 cables have an eMarker so you can't fudge this. The...

    New small (GaN) 300W power brick

    I am mod over at /r/usbchardware and a regular reader of /r/thinkpad and the reports about these noname PD triggers are typically on the negative. Lenovo has https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories/acc500104 search for 4X90U45346 it's now easily available but 45W only.

    Frost Canyon NUCs, 6c/12t i7 and 64GB of Ram Support

    It's not PCIe 4, it's PCIe x4 Gen 3. You misread. This is just another 14nm chip. Intel's generation marking makes it hard but astute readers will immediately catch the DisplayPort 1.2 and know Ice Lake supports 1.4. Mind you: not even Ice Lake supports PCIe 4. Also it's not SSDs just one SSD...
