  1. Hi all, hope you're all well. I will be tiding up ethernet cables that are in a patch panel ( see linked image https://ibb.co/zRmvbtt ) but i believe that there are about 50% of the ethernet cables that aren't in use. What's the best way for me to test if an ethernet cable is in use? most ports in the building aren't numbered or labelled so i have no idea where most of them go to. I looked at an ethernet cable tester, that would be useful but probably not what i need :/ What's the best way to go about it? Thanks, Ben
  2. Hi all, hope you're all well. I need some assistance with setting up a video conferencing room. We have a tv, spare pc's and laptops but in terms of connecting multiple microphones and a camera i may need some help. Please see image linked for the layout of the room https://ibb.co/gdVkDvd Any advice would be much appreciated, the budget i have been given is £300 Thanks, Ben
  3. Would anyone be able to help me? There's a windows XP pc at my work which uses a software called Label Gallery 2.0 but isn't supported on windows 10 and I can't find a download for that software anymore for windows XP. As a company we use .LBL files for our lable printers, I can't find any software to convert the files and use on Windows 10 What's the best way to go about things? Thanks, Ben
  4. Hi everyone. I am looking for a new cpu and motherboard but i'm not sure if i should go either intel or amd. I'm not sure if to wait for ryzen 5000 series or new intel cpu's. Also, i already have a Noctua NH-L9i i was going to buy a i7 10700 ( locked cpu as i was hoping to keep the temps down without having to buy a new cooler too as that cooler suggests not to go over 65w ) Here are my current specs from my current build minus the cpu and motherboard. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/4YCm8J As i don't have a working gaming pc at the moment, i was thinking of buying a
  5. Yeah i'll wait i thought it was going to be released much later than October! I was hoping to spending around £130 - i'm not bothered about RGB, having 2 m.2 slots would be nice my case is Phanteks Eclipse P300 ATX
  6. Hi everyone, i am upgrading my pc and need some help. I have a rtx 2060 6gb and have bought a 144hz 1440p monitor and need a new motherboard and cpu. I'm not sure if to wait for 4th gen ryzen or not. Will b550 support 3rd and 4th gen? if so, i might buy a b550 motherboard and buy a ryzen 5 3600 then upgrade to 4th generation in a year or so
  7. hi everyone. I have found two monitors i like but can't choose between them and wanted some advice. I will be buying 4th gen ryzen depending on release date and have a rtx 2060 6gb gpu Monitor 1: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B083S87D5K/?coliid=I7JC7NYTUC3G4&colid=16JLWVEYZYJPP&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Monitor 2: https://www.box.co.uk/Acer-Nitro-XV272UP-27-WQHD-HDR-IPS-Free_2450002.html#DetailTop
  8. Hi everyone - I took my pc apart and the gpu fits inside the pcie 16x slot perfectly ( outside the case ) This probably sounds ridiculous but it's almost like the gpu isn't long enough to fit all the way in as the mounting holes are correct but depth wise not long enough i have checked for cables underneath and for any capacitors and the left side just won't go in despite the right side clicking into place.The left side is probably 20% in :\ Can anyone help? ( Images below )
  9. Hi everyone I bought a new case which is the ' Phanteks Eclipse P300 ATX ' ( link below) and my 2060 doesn't click into the pcie 16x. i can get it about 60/70% of the way in. i have a mini itx board as i had a SG13B before this case and fit fine - i have attached some photo's below as well as my full specs. Has anyone got any ideas? Thanks, Ben PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i5-6400 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor
  10. Hi everyone, i have saved up enough money to buy a new motherboard and cpu but i'm unsure about 1080p or 1440p. I have a gtx 2060 6gb ( pcpartpicker linked below ) and have been looking at either a ryzen 5 3600 or a i5 9400f - will either of them give me 60 fps 1440p or is it best to stick to 1080p if you could keep the motherboard and cpu around £200 for both that would be great as i also need a new monitor and case Thanks, Ben https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/3qDYZf

Hi everyone I have a ASROCK Z270 GAMING-ITX/AC "Fatal1ty mITX " ( 6th and 7th Gen ) and i have lost the motherboard mounting screws and m.2 screw i was wondering if anyone can help me find some replacements?
