  1. Hi thanks for replying no i am having no issues at all just was not sure if it could be a problem later
  2. Hi two days ago I reapplied the thermal paste on my cpu and noticed some marks on top of the cpu and on the fan heatsink. I got a feeling i might have tighten it too much when i first put it together and was hoping someone might be able to help me by telling me what these marks are. It has been two days and pc is running smoothly and temps are good.
  3. Thanks for the reply was not planning to buy more ram saw it on offer and went for it might have to return it back I think
  4. Hi In my PC i currently have 16GB (2x8) Gskill F4-32OOC16D-16GVVGB Memory DDR4 3200 and recently found this kit that was on offer https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B015FXXBW0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Would I have any problem using both kits together the only difference I could see was the colour being different and could not any anything else that would cause a problem. When I contacted gskill they told me that they do not recommend mixing two kits together but I should try updating my bios and see if i still have bsod issues. Before I updated my bios I checked to make sure my memory is working correctly by doing a Windows memory Diagnostic which kept coming up with no issues, after that I used the System File Checker tool and had issues with that too and the same with a antivirus scan using bit defender. Once I had done all those I checks and kept getting bsod errors, I decided to update my bios which went smoothly and bsod stopped happening so frequently but still get them sometimes and today i ended up getting a boot failure message and that is why I am here hoping some can help me. PC BUILD I7 9700k Gskill 32gb 3200 DDR4 ( two kits of 16gb ) Dark Rock pro 4 AORUS Z390 PRO GTX 1070 Ram Layout #0 - 8 GB PC4-25600 DDR4 SDRAM G Skill F4-3200C16-8GVGB #1- 8 GB PC4-25600 DDR4 SDRAM G Skill F4-3200C16-8GVKB #2 - 8 GB PC4-25600 DDR4 SDRAM G Skill F4-3200C16-8GVGB #3 - 8 GB PC4-25600 DDR4 SDRAM G Skill F4-3200C16-8GVKB Any help is appreciated Thanks Harjm
  5. Which motherboard would you recommend for the 8700k and will my cooler master hyper 212 be enough or should I still upgrade CPU fan
  6. Hi thanks for the advice I have heard that quite abit too about getting the 8700k instead and might end up doing that tbh. The nvme I ended buying as a offer Amazon had on black Friday for £170 I do agree there will not bee much difference noticed
  7. Thanks for the reply was thinking the same too
  8. Hi is this deal worth it https://www.ebuyer.com/860390-msi-mpg-z390-gaming-pro-carbon-lga-1151-ddr4-motherboard-mpg-z390-gaming-pro-carbon?utm_source=hotukdeals&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=hotukdeals Or am I better of getting a Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO My pc spec will be I7 9700k Gskill ripjaw 16gb Samsung 970 nvme Noctua NH d15 or dark rock pro 4 Thanks for the help
  9. Thanks will have a look at the 2700x
  10. Yh that is what i was thinking to as it would be a long wait and nothing is confirmed yet for specs thanks for the help
  11. Yh I guess i could wait a while until they get announced brought the rest of my upgrade just left the motherboard and CPU as the last two also heard AMD announcing new cpu's in Jan
  12. Hi thanks for the reply I did not realise i selected the air cooling Section thanks for letting me know
  13. Hi I am upgrading my pc and have motherboard and CPU left to buy. I have been waiting for the I7 9700K to go down in price a bit but no luck yet and was wondering if it would be better to get AMD Ryzen. PC will be mainly used for 3D modelling using programs like UE4 and 3DS Max with occasionally playing game. Would I be better off buying a AMD Ryzen CPU over I7 9700k or maybe getting a I7 8700k would I notice a big difference in performance. Thanks
  14. Thanks for reply was looking at that and thinking maybe getting dark rock pro 4 as they are quite similar and hopefully will fit easier
