  1. Updating this. The issue is still not resolved and I have provided them with all the documentation and proof. "The parts request system is down and there is no timeline for when it will be up, please check back later". This is complete horsesh*t. Do not buy with Cooler Master right now.
  2. If there is no solution by the end of this month, I will definitely look into this option. I honestly didn't even think this was possible.
  3. I bought it from Amazon, but it was filled by CM. I have a full warranty with the product for 4 years. They acknowledge that fan failure is an issue but the solution is "temporarily" unavailable. The official CS has been very helpful, but the fact remains that there is no solution in play. I'm approaching my 3rd month with this ticket and they claim that the system will be back at the end of the month. Hopefully it will be resolved. Just frustrating spending 225$ on a case and another 50$ on warranty to get nowhere.
  4. This is mixed bag WITHOUT a solution so far. My Storm Stryker (White) has had 2 of the 5 fans fail since I bought it in January 2018. I reached out on their support site and that went nowhere. I ended up contacting them via twitter and they informed me that the ticket fell through the gaps. (I can honestly see how that happened). The solution the provided involves a system to request new parts that ARE under warranty; the kicker is that that system has been down for months and they also don't carry the parts anymore. I love coolermaster products, but this is quickly changing. /old man rant
  5. RESOLVED! Using individually installed VPN's within each VM and routing all the connections through my bridged internet connections between 2 Telus 500 fiber lines, I'm getting just over 2.5MB Up/Down under full load on each VM. Thankfully tests only last 60 seconds each time, so the routers don't melt. Also had to migrate to multiple host machines since even with a single high end consumer grade desktop I was running out of dedicated CPU cores before I was running out of ram. Might have too look at some of those XEON solutions if this goes any further. Not entirely the way I wanted too, but it works now Thanks everyone!
  6. I have come accross the AWS options a few times now and I'm not too familiar with linux, I'm going to try the VPN right now and if it fails... on to the next one!
  7. Yep. I only resolved half the problem it seems. I can get 50 VM's running and all have internet, but that's where "free" runs out. I'll going to see if connecting through VPN's on the VM's will create additional IPv4 connections to the site. Thanks for your help! P.S. That moment when you need to deliver a product within 48 hours and thoughts like "hmm, I guess I could order 50 internet lines" sound reasonable.
  8. The website is outside the local network. I am using IPv4 and IPv6 on the host, the VM's appear to only have IPv4. The router does seem to be doing just that (rewriting all the addresses when it performs the NAT). Would getting on VPN's within the VM's allow the test site to distinguish where the connections are coming from? I will try the BridgedAdapter method in Oracle and see if that works (I saw this as an option, but haven't tested). Thank you for the reply.
  9. Out of curiousity, could you direct me to a free vpn that you know works without any gimmicks? Much appreciated.
  10. This was something I thought about but the cost would go through the roof even at 50. 50 x 5$ = 250$ a month... the idea is to go beyond that 50 limit at a later time. But I guess nothing in this world is free. Thanks! This is good stuff, I actually already read one of those but it wasn't applicable to my situation. I'll give the other 3 a good read. Thank you!
  11. If you don't know the answer, maybe you know where to direct me... anything helps at this point. Task is: I need to access a website to run a very specific stress test where I run an injection script from the visiting environment. The criteria is that the test site gets a connection from an increasing amount of pc's (1, 5, 10, 50). All of these execute their script and I try to find where the limitation of the test site is. Currently solution: create a number of Oracle VM's and have each one access the site to complete the task, the issue is that all the machines are accessing the site from the same IP (host machine). This is an issue as all the connections must come from different IP's simultaneously. Can anyone recommend any solutions? Is my limitation hardware because of the single lane networking adapter? Am I able to split my line without having the ISP manually give me static IP addresses? Can anyone think of a solution outside of the box on this one? Any help would be appreciated.
  12. Used this but put an i100 v2 cooler that i had laying around Thanks
  13. System 1 is all purchased, looking for upgrade suggestions at this point. System 2 is where I need help. 1k-1.5k on the remaining parts. All peripherals already owned. Same with monitors.
  14. I have a multiple system gaming setup at home and I recently lost my oldest to unknown reasons. (I think I damaged the MOBO). I already own the parks listed in the links below. SYSTEM 1: The worse one off of the two: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/dcpkD2 SYSTEM 2: The better (WORK IN PROGRESS): https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/dVpkD2 I'm missing CPU/MOBO/Cooler/RAM from system 2. Looking for suggestions. I was thinking something along the lines of this combo: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/HpTg3b Budget is 1k+ CAD. Location Canada. I have Prime. Aim. Two systems. A+++ and an A+. Gaming with the wife. (PUBG mostly)
  15. Interesting stuff, so mostly all speculation and waiting once again. I'm giving my gf my old system since she got into gaming and was going to just build something new for myself again from scratch. I guess it's the 8700k
