    NVidia GT710

    They are all gaming cards excluding Nividia QUADRO and Radeon Pro/Fire PRO. The AMD RX500 series are semi-passive, only turn on the fan when hot.

    NVidia GT710

    It seems to be a driver problem, it affects the operational system... But AMD GPU series 5xx have lower latency and potentially less headaches with audio. https://www.gearslutz.com/board/music-computers/1212416-dpc-latency-better-amd-graphic-cards-3-card-comparison-5.html

    No problem to use a NAS drive in the desktop, if I am not mistaken the main difference in the drive firmware(may have hardware differences) is that the NAS drive does less retries in case of a disk surface problem and quick mark it as a bad block whereas a desktop drive will try to retry many...

    Ryzen 3000 Vs I9 9900K for music production

    The chipset fan, but someone mentioned the new BIOS fix. From reddit "In the BIOS you can adjust the speed to silent and it pretty resolves it. It's been super quiet since. Either way ASROCK has some work to do on their updates."

    This is memory latency, not audio interface latency...
