    Digital Audio Output Differences? Is USB Audio Really The Top-notch?

    Hello guys, So after some struggles between spending time in optimizing my PC audio functionalities and adopting a dedicated music streamer, I opted for the second one.

    Hello everyone, first-time post. I have a system build by OC with a Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite MB and have recently bought an Oculus Quest 2. I also bought a USB 3.2 cable to connect the two, but any of the USB ports I try to use seem only to work as USB 2 ones. This MB ought to have 4 USB 3...

    t is a complicated wish mash of abbreviations, acronyms and hardware specs and I am just starting to understand it. I Bought a 2015 iMac with a 1TB HDD recently and as my last iMac had an internal SSD it all feels very slow. I bought an external SSD and an enclosure and it works well booting...

    Spec me a powered USB 3 hub

    It seems my Icy Box USB 3 powered hub is on the way out. So I need a replacement. Requirements: 2+ USB 3.0 ports - the more the better - and the ability to plug in SATA drives (both HDD and SSD). The peculiarity is that it is at the end of a 5m active USB 3 cable with a type B connector.

    What issues are there with long USB cables?

    I've been very pleased with my fibre-optic Displayport cable and it occurs to me that by using long cables I could put my PC a lot farther away (cable-length-wise) and thereby reduce noise. The basic idea would be to have fibre DP cables going to my monitors and one 5m USB 2 cable going to a USB...

    Coolermaster angled 24 pin power connector and Chinese angled USB 3 connector

    A while back I suggest that OCUK stock the Cooler Master ATX 24 Pin 90° Adapter With Added Capacitors so as to reduce cable strain. A week or so back I spotted that they were in stock - I'd missed the notification - so I ordered one. It arrived today. Separately I had ordered a 90° USB 3.0...

    Files missing after copying a folder to another HDD via new USB 3.0 card.

    Hello, I just installed a new USB 3.0 PCIe expansion card and was keen to see the lightning fast speed but unfortunately it appears no faster than the USB 3.0 on my Mobo. At best it reaches about 120 MB/s. External HDD's at least stay connected now which is something, but I just copied a 300+...

    Adding USB 3.0 via a PCI-E card.

    Hello, What is the best option OCUK sells to add USB 3.0 to my ageing system without spending a lot of money. USB 3.0 on my Asus P6X58D-E doesn't work as it should and I need something faster than USB 2.0. There only appears to be one PCI-E slot free (graphics card covers some) and it is a...
