  1. I get what your saying but i wanted to save 2 slots for another 32GB kit if needed
  2. Yea ill get the 1 M.2. The RAM is for running various VM's and EVE-NG / GNS3 both are network simulators that eat up RAM for when im studying.
  3. So, upgrading my current build as i need to run VM's and things like GNS3 and EVE-NG Current i5-4690K 8GB RAM some super low end motherboard. GTX 1060 6GB Samsung 850 EVo 3 x Hard Drives. 650 WATT Corsair PSU (im sure its 650, i cant see it in my case atm) to Ryzen 3700X https://www.overclockers.co.uk/amd-ryzen-7-3700x-eight-core-4.4ghz-socket-am4-processor-retail-cp-3b7-am.html Corsair Vengeance 32GB (2x16GB) 3000mhz RAM https://www.overclockers.co.uk/corsair-vengeance-lpx-32gb-2x16gb-ddr4-pc4-24000c15-3000mhz-dual-channel-kit-black-cmk32gx4m2b3-my-459-cs.html MSI X570-A PRO (AMD AM4) DDR4 X570 Chipset https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-x570-a-pro-amd-am4-ddr4-x570-chipset-motherboard-mb-34j-ms.html My budget was around £600, this come in at £557 so still have a little money to play with. I can get 2x 128GB m.2 drives. Motherboard spec says it can support 2 so is this worth it and running them in RAID 0? or just a single 256GB? Or should i get better RAM or motherboard? Thanks.
  4. Hi, So Im needing to upgrade my computer for GNS3/EVE-NG for networking lab work. Currently i have a i5 4690k, 8GB ram, gtx 1060 6GB. and both programs don't really work so well. i was thinking of something like this and swapping out my current motherboard. CCL 4.3GHz AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Bundle - 32GB, Gigabyte B450 AORUS M Motherboard https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CCL-4-3GHz-AMD-Ryzen-7-2700X-Bundle-32GB-Gigabyte-B450-AORUS-M-Motherboard/382988601776?hash=item592be649b0:g:m3kAAOSwbcBdoKIW From E-bay for £385. A good buy for what i need? Also if this would negatively impact gaming performance its not an issue as i don't really game anymore. Thanks.
  5. So, trying to install Qradar CE on a VM. All goes well and it starts installing until i get this message. "error community edition requires centos linux or red hat enterprise linux release 7.5 . found centos linux release release 7.7.1908 (core). Anyway do downgrade Centos as i cant seem to fine the required version of 7.5. (None GUI) If i were to find and install 7.5 would it auto update to 7.7? (Linux noob if you cant tell) Thanks.
  6. Hi, so I've just bought this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F352643144257 It says in the description that no HHD caddys come with it. My question is can I still use normal 2.5/3.5 SATA drives with it if I getto rig them in without caddys, will I need separate connectors/cables if I use SATA drives or can I only use SAS drives? Thanks guys
  7. just want to know why the score was lower and why its running at high clock speed when pretty much idle.
  8. so just threw this CPU into my system and leaving all the bios settings alone for it i got a score of 624, and it hit 65c. when i check it was set to max non turbo. it was constantly at 4099mhz, at 1.224V even when not doing anything else. So i changed it to max turbo in the bios and it went to 4298mhz again at 1.224 volts but he score went to 615. again its still sitting at 4298mhz when writing this and doing nothing else. shouldnt it only ramp up when its needed. and shouldn't the score be higher? im confused! Using cinebench and CPU-Z
  9. Got my mate to check the cpus in his system and they both worked fine, he's gonna check GPU tomorrow and see what's what's
  10. not currently at home. there wasn't loads of pins bent, just like 3 or 4 but in two different areas
  11. so i was swapping out my CPU, an i3 4170 for a i5 4690k. put the i5 in and then got no video signal at all. changed the cable and monitor and checked the GPU, still no luck. Took the GPU out and connected with onboard via DVI still no luck.went to swap back to the i3 and noticed a few bent pin. oops. Ive got no other mobo to test the CPU's or GPU. Will they be ok, can the CPU be damaged from bent pins? can bent pins cause no video out signal? Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks, ive got 7.1.1 now, i was using 7.2, cheers!
  13. Hi, ive just downloaded packet tracer and started on the free cisco course, however, in the videos there is a top and bottom yellow tool strip and also more tools on the right hand side, my screen does not have them and i cant figure out how to get them on, any ideas? The first image is mine the the second is what i seam to be missing, Thanks
