    Older laptop CPU upgrade

    Since you double-checked and stated that yes, it is user up-gradable, you have a few options. It seems that the laptop has an upper-TDP limit of 35W, as that is the max that the laptop shipped with. If you want to push your luck, you could maybe go with a 45w, like a 3630QM. http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chipsets)/HM77_Express.html EDIT: This actually seems like it may be a best option if you can find any: i7-3632QM http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Core_i7_Mobile/i7-3632QM_(BGA).html

    Weird Temps

    127 is the max value of a signed int8 variable, indicating a read error on the part of HWinfo. Nothing to be concerned about.

    Computer Underperforming

    Also what resolution/settings?
  6. Last time I was this early... I don't remember being this early before.
  7. So in general most sff dc-dc psus use laptop chargers as their AC-DC converter, thus use 16-20v input. However, the Pico-PSU has a 12v input. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9siaef86jm6460 Just as a note, it does not have any external power, so you're going to use something like the 1050 ti. Just remember you also don't want to overstress the RV electrical system as well.

    NVME SSD (PM961) Only using 3.0x2

    Upon closer inspection of the drive, it appears that it was damaged before even being sent to me. The PCB is bent, which is usually fine, but the bigger problem was that there is a crack, likely resulting in broken traces. I am currently attempting to get ahold of the seller.

    NVME SSD (PM961) Only using 3.0x2

    Just took it out and looked at it. The connector itself looks fine. Nothing on the PCB screams something is wrong either. Switching is going to have to wait for a few days since I have a huge workload over the next few days.

    NVME SSD (PM961) Only using 3.0x2

    The first thing that tipped me off was the speed, then using CrystalDiskInfo, it showed the following: Where the left side is the current mode, and the right the max supported mode.
  11. Hello all, As stated in the title, I'm having some difficulties getting my second NVME SSD to run at full bandwidth. Description: When putting a second NVMe Drive (First is another PM961 1TB): Samsung PM961 1TB (Model: MZFLW1T0HMLH-000MU NVMe 1.0/1.1) Only receives PCIe 3.0x2 Bandwidth HP Liteon 256GB (Model: CX2-8B256-Q11 NVMe 1.2) Receives full 3.0x2 bandwidth. During both, GPU retains full PCIe 3.0x16 bandwidth. Hardware: 8700k Asus Strix z370i ITX Samsung PM961 1TB (x2) PNY GTX 980 Should be everything important that I can think of. I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. Any help is much appreciated.

    new build for a workstation

    Virtual machine. The operating system is running within another operating system and is isolated. Sorry about the delay.

    Good overclocking motherboard?

    While, yes, the quality of the CPU has the largest influence (And hence, buying off silicon lottery would be the first step), providing a good chip dirty power will cause it to not clock as high.

    new build for a workstation

    I was talking more so the defending environment than the attacking environment (assuming parrot is the attacking environment considering the presence of metasploit). Do you have the defending VM's on the workstation itself? It's been several years since I've done pentesting, so everything may have changed in that time.

    Good overclocking motherboard?

    I want to ask you two question: "Why are you wanting to overclock and how far are you expecting to go?"
