Not sure about this being much of a deal.


Total is £490; the RAM price was over £200 on amazon so maybe the prices were just elevated a good while ago or they're moving old stock, either way it's been sub £100 all round the web for months now which is where I assume the bulk of the "30% off" comes from. Convenient amazon price history link here

I guess it comes pre-assembled and thus presumably ready to work without flashing the bios for a £30 premium.

3 year warranty is nice too I guess.

I didn't shop around at all though so you can probably find better deals than just double checking the component costs vs amazon.

Hope I didn't miss anything very obvious.

I think SSDs are cheap enough now that for a 1tb you'd be better off getting something like this https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Performance-Internal-SP001TBSS3A55S25/dp/B07B4G19X3/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=1tb+ssd&qid=1559335102&s=electronics&sr=1-6-spell

About the same cost as your 2 drives together and 240GB less storage, but you'll enjoy fitting that many games on the SSD. Plus by the time you run out of space, you might have the cash to upgrade to an M.2 SSD



Edit: Also, I'd go for something like this for RAM


Ryzen likes fast RAM, and most people consider 3200Mhz to be the minimum to consider buying. Also priced similar to the kit you have listed.

u/bombermanSD · 8 pointsr/Amd

I've been running this RAM at 3200MHz, stable, since 1.2 actually. Been using A-XMP Profile 2. Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz

The RAM version is 5.39.

I haven't tried the latest 1.4 BIOS yet, but I'll do so tonight. [Edit: Updated to 1.4 and I'm still stable at 3200MHz]

u/TheThunderclees · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

lowest price for the past 120 days; not that great if comparing to year or two ago (but all memory went up due to the shortages).


Amazon has this same model for the same price if you prefer Amazon over Newegg.

So first thing's first, Windows: ~$130 for Home Edition.

Okay, so things to keep in mind:

  1. If you go Intel, overclocking isn't too great on 9th gen intel, especially if you don't have a beefy aftermarket cpu cooler. So if you don't plan on doing that at some point then you don't need a K series CPU and an overclocking motherboard. So your motherboard should primarily focus on giving you decent I/O options.

  2. You also probably want to aim for 1080p or 1440p tops, given your price range.

  3. Related to #1: If you don't plan on overclocking then a basic-ish mobo will do fine, and you mainly want to focus on I/O and other features. If you are getting Intel doubly so, as, as I mentioned before, intel 9th gen doesn't overclock well due to relatively low headroom to begin with. For intel overclocking boards are "Z" while non-overclocking boards are "B". For AMD they are "X" and "B" respectively.

    The GPU you should be seeking to use is the 1660 Ti, which is basically a slightly gimped RTX 2060 but without the raytracing stuff. If you are willing to spend a bit more then you could get an RX 5700 instead, which is nearly ~30% faster on average.

    That'll put you at $270 - $360 depending on the model you pick. Yes, it's a third of your budget, but the GPU is the single most important part of your build.

    Secondly you'll want a decent CPU to go with that.

    The Ryzen 5 3600 looks like a pretty good CPU, its a bit under $200, its fairly beefy and extendable so it's somewhat "future-proof" - in that it shouldn't cause much bottlenecking and you could upgrade your GPU past a 2080 Ti before needing to change the processor.

    This MSI Tomohawk Mobo looks good for the 3600.

    So we're at ~$320 for that, or about $640 total. Plus windows that is ~$730.

    The RAM Inty recommended before should be fine. You only really need 16 GB. This will set you back ~$80. If you find yourself wanting more RAM later down the line you can always add another pair of sticks later and double up your RAM.

    That puts us at around ~$800.

    $80 for a 750W Fully Modular Corsair PSU is basically a steal. It's refurbished though, although that shouldn't be a problem - especially with a PSU.

    We're at ~$880.

    Some good thermal paste for your CPU.

    We're now at ~$890.

    Storage depends on what you want to do. Do you install a lot of stuff and files at once? In which case you might want to get a nice sized SSD plus a big HDD.

    For your system drive. Plenty of space, good price, AND its an nvme SSD.

    That makes for ~$990.

    If you need lots of extra space

    If you need extreme extra space

    Keyboard and case are up to you, decide as you please. For the case just make sure that it can support an ATX mobo, as the mobo listed here is full ATX. Mechanical keyboards are crack, but they tend to be more expensive so they're probably out of range. This will be another $100 to $150 depending on what you pick.

    Something to keep in mind though: Your case and your monitors are basically "future proof". In other words, they won't really get "worse" with time or cause future performance issues. So monitors and case are things where you want to consider what you'll eventually want and buy ahead, even if you have to stretch a bit.

    This just leaves your monitor. I would NOT recommend a 1080p monitor above 24 in. Honestly, if you can go for a 1440p monitor then do it. I'm a bit of a resolution whore tho, so if 1080p works for you then that's fine. I would also avoid TN panels - they tend to look more washed out, tinny, and have worse viewing angles . . . although they also tend to be a fair bit cheaper than the good panels (namely IPS panels).

    I used to own one of these . . . it was vvy vvy gud. This is a relatively artsy monitor, so if color gamut correctness or whatever is important for you for photo or video editing or whatever, then this is a good pick. It's a bit expensive, yeah, but also super gorgeous. It also goes up to 75 Hz. Conversely, get a freesync monitor, and this one is probably good - haven't done much research on it, but Dells are generally pretty good in my experience (my current 4K monitor is a Dell too). Freesync will allow you to basically eliminate screen tearing and will provide a smoother feeling experience because it will even out frame rates better.

    One last thing to keep in mind: Shopping around on ebay and other sites can save you a fair bit. My rule of thumb is to never, ever buy sensitive parts like hard-drives, cpus, or motherboards second hand or refurbished. But everything else is fair game. So refurbished GPUs, Monitors, PSUs, Cases, etc. should be fine. Pre-owned? Ehhh . . . that I'm much, much more sketchy on - personally I wouldn't, but that's just me.

    So in total it'd be somewhere in the range of $1500 including monitor, OS, case, and keyboard. The system itself is around $1000. But you can perhaps knock off a hundred bucks or two by shopping around and looking for where you can buy these parts cheaper than Amazon.

    But again: investing in a good monitor and case can be worth it. It means you won't have to replace it if/when you do upgrade. And worst case scenario you can offload your monitor as a side/secondary monitor when you upgrade your monitor to a new one.

Remember that Ryzen loves faster Ram. For a few bucks more you can get the 3200 speed kit.

This is not my best guide, but it is a guide. Refinements welcome.
I wish I knew where to post the refined version, because it seems wasted
on the ephemeral DT.

PC building notes, 2019 Q3


This post is a a "guide" to PC building in late 2019. It is incomplete
in two senses. First, I make no special claims to authority or objectivity.
I'm just an enthusiast. I have only personally tested a fraction of the parts
listed below. Second, I am writing this before the Intel 10th-gen refresh
and before the release AMD's flagship 3950X. Those new parts may impact some
of the advice given below.

This guide is extremely opinionated. I will simplify and exaggerate to
keep things simple.

This post was written while drinking whisky and listening to


What's inside your PC

A PC has seven core components. They are,

  1. CPU: the central processing unit. The thing that does calculations.
  2. Motherboard: the bit that all the other bits slot into
  3. GPU: the graphics processing unit. For frames in games.
  4. RAM: Random Access Memory. Fast, volatile, short-term storage.
  5. Storage: longer-term storage. Comes in several flavors, mainly solid state
    and hard disk.
  6. PSU: the power supply unit. The bit that delivers power to the other bits.
  7. Case: a steel box that you put the other bits in.

    A word first on compatibility. The skeleton of the build is the motherboard,
    and you have to make sure that every other bit is compatible with your board.
    There are two CPU manufacturers, AMD and Intel; each has their own CPU
    design and thus has their own motherboard type. RAM, storage, PSUs, and GPUs
    are all cross-compatible with either AMD or Intel motherboards.
    Motherboards come in different sizes. A case will be compatible with certain
    size ranges. From small to big, these are ITX, m-ATX, ATX, and
    E-ATX. You'll want to check that your motherboard can fit in your case.


    AMD's most current CPUs are the 3000-series Ryzen chips. There are a bunch
    of them, but the only two you have to care about are the

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 ($200)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X ($330)

    The other options are the 3600X, the 3800X, and the 3900X. None of these
    are interesting compared to the two listed above, and can be safely ignored.

    Intel's current CPUs are the 9th-gen Core chips. I would only seriously
    consider two of these chips,

  • Intel i7-9700K ($380)
  • Intel i9-9900K ($450-$500)

    and I'd ignore the rest. If you want to spend less than $350 on a CPU,
    then go AMD. If you want to spend more than $350 on a CPU,
    go Intel.

    A word about prior-gen chips. The AMD 2000 series (2700X, 2600) and the
    Intel 8th gen series (8700K) are still viable at the right price. Look at
    benchmarks. More on that later.

    A word about lower-spec CPUs. AMD sells cheap CPUs that have integrated
    graphics. That means you don't need to buy a graphics card with these chips.
    As such, a build with the 3400G or 3200G can be extremely inexpensive. Consider
    them for office use or basic builds that don't require heavy graphics.
    I have personally tested them and they play 4K video flawlessly; they should
    be perfectly adequate for basic tasks.

    For scientific workloads, ask me to write another post. I can't cover
    everything here.


    Motherboards only accept either AMD or Intel CPUs, but not both, so you must
    choose a board that is compatible with your CPU.
    Once you decide between AMD or Intel, you can proceed to figure out which
    motherboard you want. There are approximately six billion boards. For AMD,
    skip the hassle and just buy the

  • MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX

    Note the "MAX." The Tomahawk was released during the 1000- and 2000-series
    of AMD processors. The MAX variant is compatible with 3000-series chips
    out of the box.

    For Intel, I know far less. Any Z390 board should be acceptable.

    For AMD, the new X570 boards are available as well. They are pricey and
    overkill for 90% of desktop users. Feel free to skip them. Look out for the
    B550 boards that are to be released in 2020Q1.


    There are two main manufacturers of GPUs: AMD and Nvidia. Confusingly, they
    do not sell GPUs themselves, but market them through partners like MSI,
    EVGA, PowerColor, Sapphire, etc.

    The GPU stack is a little confusing.
    That chart lists all of the main GPUs on the market, and if you count, there
    are over 25 GPUs listed. Multiply 25 GPUs by 10 or so board partners,
    multiplied again by the fact that each partner sells multiple types of the same
    GPU, and you have a recipe for an absolute nightmare of a market.
    The prices are only approximate.

    Let me cut through the fog. You should buy one of

  • AMD RX 570 ($130)
  • Nvidia 1660 or AMD RX 590 ($220-$280)
  • AMD RX 5700 XT ($400-$430)
  • Nvidia 2080 Super ($700)
  • Nvidia 2080 Ti ($1200)

    Pick your price point.


    RAM is distinguished by its generation. We are currently on DDR4, with
    DDR5 to come in either 2020 or 2021. This part is easy. Just buy
    16GB of DDR4 3200-speed RAM and be done with it.
    This kit
    will set you back $75 to $85 depending on the day of the week and will perform
    adequately for 99.98% of users.


    In 2019, there is no excuse for not buying fast solid-state storage.
    For 90% of users, you should buy either the 500GB or 1TB variant of the
    Intel 660p and call it a day.
    This reviewer
    is 100% paid off by Intel, but he's also right on this topic. Buy a 660p
    and rest easy.

    For enthusiasts, the 660p uses new, cheap, somewhat fragile QLC NAND technology
    and you might want to go with a Samsung 970 instead.

    That does it for your boot drive. If you need further long-term storage for
    music, movies, videos, games, etc, look into either Seagate or WD's 8TB to
    12TB options.

    I personally have a few WD Gold 12TB drives. They're pricey, but they're
    enterprise-grade and haven't done me wrong yet. My firm, which buys storage
    by the truckload, loves these things. They rarely fail.

    I personally am using a 660p for OS, a second SSD for
    some of my media, and HDDs for long-term storage.


    I have neither the time nor the expertise to get into a deep discussion of
    power supplies. The topic is apparently very complicated. You should buy
    something in the 550W to 750W from a manufacturer like Corsair, EVGA,
    or CoolerMaster. Make sure it has the number of VGA connectors that your GPU


    The case is the place to really personalize your build. Try not to spend
    more than $100, though; at the end of the day, it's just a steel box.


    In some ways, the bits outside the computer are more important than the bits
    inside. After all, these are the bits you interact with on a daily basis.

  • Monitors
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Headphones or speakers
  • Chair
  • Desk


    Monitors are distinguished by size and resolution.

    The resolutions available are 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. I recommend the following.

  • 24" 1080p for entry-level gaming and for most office work
  • 25" or 27" 1440p
  • 32" or higher 4K

    You may also care about refresh rate; the most common refresh rates are 60Hz
    and 144Hz. These only matter for gaming.

    One particular sweet spot is the "1440p, 27", 144Hz refresh rate" class. Look
    up benchmarks and comparison videos.


    Pick to taste. Some swear by mechanical keyboards. Others buy standalone
    keyboards that mimic the laptop keyboard that they're used to.


    I have used the Logitech G500 and Logitech G403, and both are fine. They're
    somewhat expensive and will run you about $70.


    There are a million ways to fulfill your sound needs. For wired headsets,
    the bone-stock recommendation is the AudioTechnica ATH-M50x.
    For speakers, I can recommend the Klipsch 2+1.

    For more earphone and headphone suggestions, ask me for an extended discussion.

    Chair and desk

    Don't neglect these. You'll be sitting at that chair for several hours per
    day, and you'll use that desk forever. Measure how wide your monitors will be
    and buy a desk accordingly. Go to an office supply shop and sit in a few chairs;
    pick one that you like. Your desk and chair will last forever, so don't be
    afraid to spend a little money here.


    Read Logical Increments in its entirety.

    Watch videos from real, serious hardware reviewers. I recommend
    Gamers Nexus, Paul's Hardware, and Hardware Unboxed. Anyone else is either
    subpar or bought out or provides worthless advice.

    Do research, think for yourself, and ask me questions. I'll either give you
    advice or point you to reliable resources if I think my advice would be lacking.

u/FwiffoTheBrave · 6 pointsr/Stellaris

>Mhz really doesn't matter at all
>CAS latency

How does that even fit into the same message? You're completely wrong.

TL;DR. No, the RAM clock means a lot. Detailed explanation with examples and math below.

Your comparison to cars is also completely off the mark. To even bring it to something remotely correct, you have to account for the different cars, where slower RAM is an industrial truck running in higher gear, whereas the faster RAM is a sports supercar running 1 gear below the truck, so a truck in 4th gear with medium RPM against a supercar in 3rd gear with high RPM, going in a straight line on a completely flat asphalt road. Want to take a guess which one would win?

I'll even ignore the fact that higher-clocked RAM often has same CAS latency than lower-clocked RAM for the sake of argument.

So here's an explanation of how Mhz and CAS latency really work, which illustrates this point. First off, CAS latency is literally measured in memory cycles, which are measured in Mhz. I'll operate with nanoseconds in my calculations, so Mhz will be translated to Ghz (1Ghz is 10\^9 hz, while 1ns=10\^-9 sec) for easier-to-read numbers.

Say you have a typical 3200Mhz RAM stick (16gb, 75$) with 16 CAS latency. Keeping in mind that the bandwidth for memory commands operate at half the spec clock, we come to 3200Mhz for data transfer, but only 1600Mhz (1600 million per second, or 1.6 billion) for memory commands. Time for one full cycle is thus 1/1600000000 = 0.625ns. Then we multiply that value by the CAS latency number to translate cycles from latency to seconds: 0.625 * 16 = 10ns. This is the real latency of such a stick.

For comparison, let's take this G.Skill memory set (16gb, 70$ - I couldn't find faster) with 2666Mhz and 15 CAS latency. Doing the same procedure, we get 1.333Ghz clock for command interface, full cycle time of 1/1333000000 = 0.750ns, and finally the real latency of 0.750 * 15 = 11.25ns.

If you take RAM with even higher clocks, the difference will be even bigger, for instance RAM with 3600Mhz and 19 CAS latency (10.6ns) would still be faster than 2666Mhz 15 CAS one (11.25ns).

Not only is the first set clocked higher, which brings additional advantages with certain CPU models, especially Ryzen, it also has lower actual latency despite having higher CAS latency. It is literally better in every single aspect that concerns performance. To match that at all, the slower 2666Mhz stick would need 13 CAS latency (that would bring it to 9.75ns), and I couldn't find memory like that. Or in reverse, to make the higher-clocked memory run as slow as the lower-clocked one, you would need 17 CAS latency (would bring it to 11.33ns), which would make the real latency only marginally bigger (we're talking about fractions of a nanosecond here) while having significantly higher throughput, so it would still be faster overall.

So yeah, I would say Mhz of the RAM means a whole lot, while it is actually hard to find higher-clocked RAM with CAS latency bad enough to make it slower than lower-clocked RAM.

u/TThor · 3 pointsr/buildapc

The most important things with RAM (besides being the right type for your computer, such as DDR4), are: size (GB), clockspeed (mhz), and CAS timing (typically some number between 8-20).

The bigger the size the better, but these day 16GBs of ram is recommended, 32GB max for most users. The higher the clockspeed the better, but typically you get the most bang for your buck around 3000mhz or 3200mhz, over 3200 you tend to get diminishing performance returns for far higher cost; Also, make sure your motherboard supports the given clockspeed. CAS timing, this is a little complicated, but long story short the lower the timing the better, and the ram's actual performance is based on some equation of like clockspeed divided by cas timing or such. For 3200MHz ram, the typical cas timing is 16 (specifically "16, 18, 18, 18, 36", but don't worry about those other numbers, just the first one).

For good highspeed DDR4 ram that isn't crazy, I would recommend these.

Worth noting, if you have different ram in your computer running at different speeds, all of your ram will run as slow as the slowest ramstick. For that and some other reasons, it is best to keep all the ram in your PC the same type, so that they will all perform the same.

I just built a system with the r5 3600 and the stock cooler has been fine even with overclocking to 4.1ghz. This depends if your case has decent airflow. Maybe don't spend the money on a cpu cooler until you test out the stock cooler and determine if its worth the cost. The r5 3600 has a pretty low tdp of 65w and doesn't need crazy coolers like the old fx cpu's

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0143UM4TC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 this ram is also pretty good for the price. I would rather have corsair than team force unless you really want the rgb

Also you might want to look at this ssd https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-512GB-Gen3x4-SU512GBP34A80M28AB/dp/B07L6DKM8V/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=silicon+power+m2&qid=1574562671&sr=8-4 Around the same price but way faster speed. 3gb per second vs 500mbs. Seems like pcie ssd are only a bit more expensive than Sata ssd which is weird as they are way better speed.

People don't know how to read the title lmao. C14S is the best air cooler for the NCase.

If you get:

  • x570 mobo
  • NCase
  • 3700x
  • ram
  • C14S
  • SF600
  • case fans

    You will prolly only be left with like $300ish for the gpu. Maybe a 1660 ti or 2060 super? Might be ok with a SF450 instead of the SF600 depending on your gpu, that would save a bit. Could also opt to get a lower mobo since x570's main draw is the pcie 4.

    Might be able to find better deals come cyber monday/black friday, but buying used would prolly help save more and you wouldn't need to wait for a sale.

This looks solid, but you can get DDR4-3200mhzCL16 from amazon for 70 USD if you're willing to buy online.

u/MegaMadness · 3 pointsr/buildapc

With such a budget you should definitely consider getting some higher speed RAM. Higher Speed RAM is VERY important with a Ryzen CPU. I recommend having a RAM of around 3000-3200 Mhz Speed.

Take a look at this 3200 Mhz, use this RAM. This is in USD money but it translates to $254.38 AUD.

Also you do not have to get liquid metal, but if I were you I would get the Arctic MX-4. I heard it is slightly better then the Silver 5 and you can get it for cheaper if you get a smaller tube. ($8.50 AUD)

I also know you said you don't want to go for a better CPU but with such a powerful GPU I am worried your 1700X might cause a bottleneck. I'd say go for the 1800X due to its higher base clock and overall slightly improved core performance. Or just go for Intel since their CPUs are much more performance based rather then budget based which is what AMD's CPUs are.

Is there really a difference between this Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 X 8GB) DDR4 3200 RAM "for AMD" VS this one?

u/razorbladesloveteenf · 3 pointsr/Amd

If you are going Corsair you can save money with the LPX modules:
They have the same speed and timings but with a lower profile heatsink.

Minor difference in PSU and GPU, but should be about the same.

u/ThlightLithp · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have 2 8GB sticks of this ram (3200, 16-18-18-36) that are new and unopened. Would it be worth it to return them and pay $10 more for these? I have a Ryzen 5 3600, a B450 Tomahawk, and a 2070s.

u/bgunn925 · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

Just a heads up for the LPX RAM, you can get the same kit brand new, not acting wonky, and in 3200MHz CL16 for $66 on Amazon

u/larry567 · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

This is a decent price for 3200 currently: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0143UM4TC/

u/xXDanger_ZoneXx · 2 pointsr/computers
While your budget seems large, the vast majority is going to be taken up by the Nvidia 1080Ti

CPU|Ryzen 5 1500X
Motherboard|MSI B350 PC MATE
RAM|Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB

This might be a little out of your price, but I did my best. You could drop the price lower by going with 8GB of RAM instead of 16GB. The 1080Ti took up a vast majority of the budget, but I don't think going for the 1500X will impact performance much. The 1500X also comes with a fairly good stock cooler (Wraith Cooler).
u/delatroyz · 2 pointsr/intel

2666 is official certified but XMP profile goes much higher. I agree with others saying that 3000 / 3200 ram is best value. I just bought this RAM recently for my upcoming 8700K build. It's not a great time to buy RAM with the prices where they're at but what can you do..

u/Dnb---- · 2 pointsr/reddeadredemption

1050ti is weaker than your 1060

Imo your best option for now would be to buy a new cpu, a new motherboard, 16gb ram and a cpu cooler (assuming you don't have one

And when you can, upgrade your gpu.

I'm assuming your case etc.. is fine

u/notFluffyMaa · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Honestly your build seems pretty good, you might want to fork out a bit extra for some slightly faster ram. I’m pretty sure you should be able to get a 16gb 3000mhz cl15 kit of vengeance lpx off of Amazon.

u/SafeEntertainer · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Tying to figure out what is the best DDR4 RAM (16GB total) for a ryzen 9 3900x (or ryzen 5 3600) ?

I've read that the DDR4 PC3600 (PC28800) were one of the best with these Ryzen / AM4 socket.

(I don't want High Perf / Highly Overclockable RAM, just the best RAM for the bucks)

is those 2 similar and among the best choices?

u/wasted1001 · 2 pointsr/HardwareSwapUK

You might need to lower your price a bit mate, on amazon its £86 for 2 * 8gb, which has the added benefit of leaving 2 slots open for more RAM in the future




Also, prices of RAM have halfed in the past year. Good for those buying now, not good for people who bought last year when it was expensive and are trying to resell now

u/edgarthesalad · 2 pointsr/buildapc

i have the cpu it holds up but i would recommend swapping out the mobo for the MSI bazooka v2 , more lanes for ram and i also have the mobo its pretty good. I believe corsair vengeance 3200mhz is on sale right now on amazon!!

u/Kameron_Dark · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I was looking at this ram


so CAS 16 3200mhz.
That motherboard is pretty expensive here in the uk (£80 on amazon) but I'll keep an eye out to see if it goes on sale closer to black friday.


u/scswift · 2 pointsr/oculus

Your upgrade looks like it will be way cheaper than mine was.

I got the Rift on sale for $350, but my PC was like 10 years old with only a new SSD in it.

Ended up getting an i5-9600K + MSI Z390 Gaming Edge for $470, 16 GB of RAM, Cooler Master 212 EVO which turned out to be huge and a huge pain in the ass to install (I recommend watching the video on that page that I didn't notice until after I installed the thing with only it's Ikea-like instructions.), but that big fan means it's far quieter than the tiny stock fans processors usually come with. The i5-9600K does not come with a fan either, so I had no choice and this was the most popular one on NewEgg.

Also got myself an MSI Gaming X GTX 1070 used on Ebay for $270. And because it only has one HDMI port, I decided to use that for the RIFT because it was less risky, and got a Displayport to HDMI cable which supports audio for my monitor which has the speakers built in and does not have a Displayport connector. Only afterward while taking my PC apart however did I realize I had the HMDI cable plugged into my old card with a DVI adapter, and the Gaming X has a DVI port as well, so I could have saved the money on the cable. :(

Also at the last minute I had to run out and grab a Corsair 750W power supply because my perfectly good Coolermaster 750W power supply did not have an 8 pin connector for my CPU. Of course, when I got it home it did not have the 4 pin connector and the motherboard has both a 4 pin and 8 pin and I assumed both would be needed, but I gave it a shot and just having the 8 pin was fine. But now I wonder if just having the 4 pin would also have been fine. The damn manual doesn't have a thing to say about it being okay to just use one of them, but being an electrical engineer I have to assume they're both tied to the same rail on the board, so I'm just gaining a bit more copper to lower the voltage drop if I were to connect a 4 pin as well, and the system seems perfectly stable, so perhaps they included the second connector to help with overclocking. I dunno.

Anyway, final tally including the Rift without a third sensor was $1,339.

And if you're wondering why I didn't go with AMD, well, I could have but when I priced it out, I wasn't actually going to save that much. And the Intel seemed like it would perform better with both games and applications and would just be less likely to have any issues like the Vive and its wireless solution do with AMD processors.

Part of the reason the AMD was not much cheaper is the same MSI motherboard would have been more expensive as an AMD variant and while the AMD included a cooler, the Cooler Master one was only $30 and had a bigger fan which meant it would likely be quieter. Though the AMD does run at a lower wattage, so it could be a toss up. All I know is my old PC sounded like a jet engine when I started doing any heavy lifting with 3D graphics, and it was still kinda noisy otherwise, but now its super quiet and even when running 3D apps that MSI card which I specifically chose because it's one of the quietest, was indeed really quiet.

Speaking of the 1070, my god that is a monster of a card! I barely fit it in my case. And my case is a full size tower. But it has extra 3.5" bays down the bottom where I have my hard drives installed and I had to move them down some more to get it to fit and it only barely slid in behind the metal frame of the drive bay.

Only other thing to mention is while I had no problem fitting my two ram sticks on the motherboard, that Cooler Master cooler's fan would probably collide with one of the ram sticks if I were to install four in there. I think the fan can slide up and down on the cooler though, so perhaps as long as you have low profile ram, you could slide it up a smidge or two to make it fit. Something to consider if you think you may eventually want 32 or 64GB of ram.

u/GuSec · 2 pointsr/Amd

Thanks for the answer. I had a hard time googling it, I don't know why. This is quite unfortunate since I was planning on some day updating cooling to the Noctua NH-D15 or something. I guess I will simply have to exchange LED to LPX. CMU16GX4M2C3200C16R was what I ordered...

I guess then that CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 is what I want? Equivalent in performance but low profile (and no LED)?

u/Mikuzoid · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Well I would recommend Getting something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMK16GX4M2B3200C16-Vengeance-Performance-Desktop/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1549448311&sr=1-1&keywords=3200mhz+ram


IMO 3200MHz is really the sweet spot for DDR4. There are kits with a C14 timings on the market at that frequency but they cost £100 more(at least here in the UK) so it's not worth it.

u/oopsforgotmyusername · 2 pointsr/Amd

Its this kit and the timings are showing up as 16-17-17-35, which I believe is the advertised timings as well.

u/hammoudsquared · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Hey, I took the guy above's advice and picked out some faster RAM. I chose the Corsair Vengeance since I get free 2 day shipping.
If you wanted to stay at the same price, I found this Team Dark 16GB DDR4 3000, but you'd have to get them soon since the sale on them ends Thursday.

u/squishyrollingpanda · 2 pointsr/buildapc
  1. Don't wait for the Canadian dollar to appreciate against USD. It is unpredictable and by the time (read: if) it gets to a desirable level, your build may change based on the technology/market prices out there


  2. I'm guessing you're going with the Vengeance LPX in white solely to match your case. I have the base S340 in white, with the same RAM in black. I honestly don't notice the difference, especially since the inside of my case is not too brightly lit.

    If you're tight on money, the black version is available for $10 cheaper on Amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-PC4-25600-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495138023&sr=8-1&keywords=Corsair+-+Vengeance+LPX+16GB+%282+x+8GB%29+DDR4-3200

    I hadthe budget of getting the Elite, but decided to use the cost savings from not getting that to upgrade other components instead. The tempered glass is really nice, but I just made do with what I got.

    While it isn't the most pretty thing, my workaround for a headphone holder: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71SPY3VRLzL._AC_UL320_SR310,320_.jpg


  3. Shoot for that SSD ASAP IMO. Saves you the hassle of migrating data later on + re installations if you can make do with ~250GB-500GB in the meantime.
u/jlyr3mixed · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

u/kggrm · 2 pointsr/Amd

This RAM kit is on the QVL for your motherboard and is identified as Samsung B-die. It's rated to run at DDR4 3200 with your board. It looks like a good option to me.


u/Joram467 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

For an extra 10$ you can the 3200 instead of the 3000 version of the ram you're buying.

Some case fans would be nice too(case only comes with 2). Good luck :)

u/mx5klein · 2 pointsr/Amd

You could get away with one for a while but the 3700x will last longer with more cores. I like the PSU choice but that memory is way overpriced for what it is - https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC

u/farknheathen · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I mean if you live near a Micro Center you can get a 2700x (as of yesterday) for under $200 so that is why I say wait until the new CPUs come out as the price might come down a bit or you realize you can afford the new tech and get a better boost. For 16GB of RAM you are looking around $80-$100 for solid RAM with good speed, example here. Yeah, people will opt for a smaller SSD which mainly contains the operating system and some other programs. Games, Photos, Videos and such are just stored on the traditional drives since boot time isn't as big of a concern.

u/Stunfury · 2 pointsr/letsplay

Definitely. You might also want to bring it down to 30 FPS until you get some really high end components. I think it would also be worth looking into getting some paired sticks of RAM at a higher base clock. Most RAM clocks in at around 2000 MHz, but you can get stuff at over 3000 MHz for maybe $10 extra as long as your motherboard supports it. Here's a good set IMO: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz

u/mohanchandar · 2 pointsr/IndianGaming

Well that sucks.. this is a good choice if you can't wait for prices to drop / restock.

or get 2 of these: https://www.amazon.in/Corsair-Vengeance-3000Mhz-Motherboard-CMK8GX4M1D3000C16/dp/B07B4FRMGV/

u/Trey5169 · 2 pointsr/computers

If you bought that 4460 new, then replacing your PSU is probably a good preventative measure. I doubt that you need to, but since it powers everything, there's an uncomfortably high (but honestly, relatively low) chanve that it could fry some electronics when it inevitably fails. So spending an extra $80-$100 on a much, high quality PSU would be something to look into, though it mostly helps with longevity.

If your PSU is less than 3 years old, or you already have a high quality pay that you trust, that money would better be spent on a SSD upgrade. Also, make sure to backup your data before you upgrade everything; worst case scenario, you put a fresh install of Windows on your old HDD (or brand new SSD) and then restore files from a backup (stored on a seperate drive) for that fresh, and yet still familiar Windows experience. Just moving your HDD over and expecting it to work is kinda asking for trouble.

Also Also, if you can, make sure you have a copy of your Windows Activation Key before the upgrade. Windows may be marked as inactive after the change; a call to microsoft support should fix it if push comes to shove, but having the key simplifies the process.

Finally, have you considered upgrading to an AMD system? If you're buying that i5 9600k as a budget option, you may want to look into the price/performance king right now, which I believe is a ryzen 5 3600 (released earlier this week) coupled with a b450 series board. I think that comes out to around $300 before RAM, definitely shop around though.

Edit: If you don't plan on overclocking your RAM, this seems like a nice budget option: $75 for 16 GB Ddr4-3200

Ryzan 7 1800X

Corsair H100i v2

So with that said, according to MSI, this ram should hit 3200 for Ryzen. I cannot verify since my stuff isn't going to ship to me until next week sadly :-/

For my Ryzen 1600 build I bought a Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3 motherboard and GeiL Evo X 3000 memory. (Bought for $145). I'm wondering if I should return the memory and go for this instead.

Would it be worth the extra money for 3200 vs 3000? I bought the GeiL memory because it's on Gigabytes memory QVL, but I'm second guessing my choice now and wondering if I should go for the faster memory and hope that it either works out of the box, or will work in the (hopefully) not too distant future.

What do you guys think, stick with what I've got or go with the Corsair memory? Thanks!

The RAM you have listed is waaaay too expensive for the speed. You can go with 16gb crucial value ram on Amazon for $103 or look for faster RAM (~3000-3200mhz) for the price you're at. Supposedly faster RAM helps with ryzen.

Hi, so I put it together but I'm having some issues. I'm not sure if they're because I'm a first time builder or because I bought this ram: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0143UM4TC/ref=ya_aw_oh_bia_dp?ie=UTF8&psc=1 instead of the one listed by you guys because it was out of stock when I was ordering parts. Or maybe faulty hardware.

Basically, my PC only sometimes sends a full signal to the monitor when turning it on. The monitor often just enters power saving mode. It's not the monitors problem.

When it does send the signal, I can only play about 2 minutes of a game before I get a ton of white square artifacts on my screen, game freeze, and then it automatically restarts. I don't believe this really happens outside of a game.

Could I have possibly shorted the motherboard when trying to align the support screws with the motherboard holes? Could this be a driver issue? Or is my gpu faulty? It will take forever to RMA.

I will be troubleshooting it this weekend while meeting up with a friend who is a little more knowledgeable than me with computers. Any ideas for tests?

Was planning on using both the included fans on the DH15. I think I bought low-profile RAM. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0143UM4TC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Looking for advice on which of the two following ram kits would pair better with a Ryzen 5 2600, not sure if C16 vs C15 and if 3200 vs 3000MHz will make much of a difference but looking for opinions on which is the better kit, links below to both kits for reference.

u/sneakerheadonabudget · 1 pointr/buildapc

I took into consideration your comments and i've adjusted my build, any thoughts?

I switched my Original MOBO to this one: ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Gaming Motherboard (ATX) AMD Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 Gen2 B450

and my RAM to this one: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Desktop Memory Kit - Black (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16)


And I lowered my SSD price tot this one, sacrifcing 20GB because i dont think i need more than 480: Kingston A400 SSD 480GB SATA 3 2.5” Solid State Drive SA400S37/480G - Increase Performance

u/Titillate · 1 pointr/buildapc

Which RAM is better? 3000MHz CAS15 or 3200MHz CAS16?

u/TheOneWhoMurlocs · 1 pointr/buildapc

You shouldn't need a cooler unless you're planning to push for high overclocks. The stock cooler is said to be pretty damn good even at moderate overclocks. Also https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0143UM4TC/?tag=pcpapi-20 would save you five bucks in memory on amazon. I'm waiting for the last part to arrive on a nearly identical rig, and several reviews mentioned this ram getting the box speed on the 2600x/tomahawk so that's what I went with.


I would also put serious consideration into a 750w PSU. I almost went with the EVGA 750 G3, but a great seasonic went on sale. Should only cost $10 more than your 650.

As for monitors, i love my (not an IPS) Dell S2716DG. I went with gsync over IPS to save money, and I honestly don't think I could do without anymore.

u/Eternal_Ohm · 1 pointr/buildapc

There's these but I don't know what motherboard you have so I don't know the max memory speed it supports

u/moses300212 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yes, the prices are much better now, after the whole Bitcoin craze. I just bought a Sapphire Radeon RX 5700xt for $400. However, since you're looking for minimum GPU requirements, this is a cheap suggestions as well:


Also, RAM is very cheap right now, just look at this 16 GB pair I bought a couple weeks back:


Personally, with how low prices are, I'd just build a new PC since your last one was around 8 years ago.

u/broknbottle · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Yah I somehow have no clue what I'm talking about but somehow called it when I said you probably bought trash SK Hynix RAM... Just because it's on some dumb bs QVL doesn't guarantee it will work. Instead of blowing your wad on RGBEEEES you should of bought a quality RAM kit with Samsung B-Dies (G Skill TridentZ, FlareX, etc) or Micron E-Die (Crucial Ballistix Sport, etc).

For the 3200mhz corsair lpx vengeance ram, you didn't provide the exact model but I'm guessing it's these which are definitely SK Hynix crap..



Thes are definitely SK Hynix A-Die - F4-3600C18D-16GTZN



^ This list should show you which chips are in which kits. Note that some manufactures of RAM kits will bait and switch by switching chips. They'll send out something with B-Die to reviewers or in the initial batch and then switch to SK Hynix crap.

The other thing is you never provided your PSU model which also plays an important role. I'd recommend sticking to Seasonic, re-badged PSU which are actually Seasonics or higher end Corsair models.

u/Adalwolf311 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I like the LPX line.

u/RaZoX144 · 1 pointr/Amd


Will this RAM work fine with 3600X and B450 Tomahawk MAX?

Does the whole "B-Die/E-Die vs Hynix-Die" still matters, or will it work fine?

u/Darkmaster2110 · 1 pointr/ValveIndex

I'd suggest just getting a kit of at least 3000MHz or higher 16GB ram. You ram is pretty slow, if you did get more to add on it could still be better. It's dirt cheap right now, just pick this up and you should be fine. Sorry for US link, but it should fine pretty cheap in Canada too I imagine.

I'm you're unfamiliar with RAM speeds, you have to set it in the bios for it to take advantage, so make sure you do that or it'll probably run at like 2400 MHz by default.

u/sm2345 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Um, they are almost 50 USD apart:

3600: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AKWSUOU/
3200: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0143UM4TC/

That translates to almost 80 USD extra in Japan.

u/mista-fish · 1 pointr/buildapc

Definitely be on the lookout for a Ryzen 5 2600. I currently have a FX-6300 and I’m looking to upgrade to the Ryzen. Corsair vengeance lpx is about 67$ for 16gb, DDR4 3200 MHz ram on amazon right now.
https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC . Since you’re relatively low budget you can go for a micro atx motherboard (smaller size and less slots) that’ll be a tad bit cheaper, and with the bundle it can go even lower. Good luck with your build!

u/Bromao · 1 pointr/italy

La ram 80€? Ci sono 2x8 GB sempre della Corsair, ma DDR4 e a 3200 mhz a 76€ su Amazon.

Per il resto però hai ragione, il processore ormai è vecchiotto, così come la scheda madre, che non è compatibile con le ram ddr4 nè con processori più recenti, e lo so perché è lo stesso modello che avevo io, quindi se quello a cui lo vendi vuole fare upgrade in futuro si trova un po' nelle peste. La 1070 è ancora un'ottima scheda, però fra 1660ti e serie 2000 di opzioni più recenti ed economicamente competitive se ne trovano. Anche per le SSD devi tenere presente che di recente i prezzi sono scesi parecchio, e infatti quello che hai preso tu sta a 30€ sempre su amazon.

400€ in ogni caso secondo me è un po' pochino non fosse altro per la 1070, ma allo stesso tempo mi sembra difficile giustificare un prezzo che vada oltre i 500€ - 550€, anche considerato che per quanto riguarda il gaming siamo a fine generazione console e uno ormai se cerca una ps4 pro o una xb1 le trova a prezzi molto più bassi

Really interested in the X370 killer/ac or B350 Gaming K4 now. Can you get a full 3200MHz ram speed with those if I were to purchase something like these? Is the ram speed issue something that will be fixed down the road with further bios updates?

u/petedee · 1 pointr/Amd

Forgive my ignorance with this but I have to ask...

Recently I got a Ryzen 5 1600 + the GA-B350-Gaming3 + Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16  ram. Currently it's stuck at 2400mhz, would a motherboard firmware update in the future mean I could get it up to full speed or am I always going to limited by the motherboard?

u/Hutty590 · 1 pointr/Amd

Yeah, the guy at the store "looked" it up on the qvl list for me. Serves me right for not doing enough research on my own I guess.

Is this the ram you have? https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-PC4-25600-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC

u/MonkeyTheMonk · 1 pointr/buildapc

You definitely can. I had my NH-D15 in a nano-s before, and actually had to downsize the front fan and move it up slightly due to interference from the 24 pin ATX cable. That is why I am still using the smaller fan in front, even though I am now in a larger case.

That said, I would still personally choose LPX ram to avoid any potential issues. As somebody who likes his baby-head sized air coolers I've never once thought to myself "BOY I WISH I HAD TALLER RAM". It isn't like LPX is particularly expensive either.

u/extremeblight · 1 pointr/Amd

Sorry I updated the original post to specify the exact motherboard. It is the Prime x370-A. I know the -Pro and -A have a few differences, but have noticed both have had recent bios updates, so I should still be good?

u/Allhopeforhumanity · 1 pointr/buildapc

I have a 4790K and 980ti and get around 90-100 fps at 1440p. Finding a cheap 4770k or 4790k is probably your cheapest route to a bit more fps. Otherwise I'd probably suggest an R5 2600 for around $160; 16GB of DDR4 Pc3200 for ~$130 and a B450 mobo for around $125. That would bring your total to right around $415 before tax/shipping.

Ryzen and RAM speed is so confusing, and no one really seems to know what is going on. My question is what is the real difference between this B-Die 3200 C14 @$199 and this LPX 3200 C16 @$189. Is C16 vs C14 meaningful in any way? Will they both be able to hit 3200?

Just look at your QVL list and google the names of any that are 3200 and 8GB in size and it'll work that's all I did for my 2600 to get 3200 working. This is on your QVL list at 3200.

u/mlazzarotto · 1 pointr/buildapc

Hi, I've bought a MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC and I want to buy 16Gb of Ram.

Apparently the motherboard does support the Corsair Vengeance LPX at 3000MHz but not the same model at 3200MHz as the compatibility table says here.

However in the same compatibility table, it's written that it does support other ram at 3200MHz.

Should I try to buy the higher clock rate ones or switch to another model, for example the HyperX Predator 3200MHz DDR4?

Yeah no RGB Memory. I had the RGB cooler, but I recently got my Noctua mounting brackets so even that's gone.

this is my RAM kit (but in white). It may technically not be supported, but before I updated my BIOs to 1107 it wouldn't POST at 3200Mhz, but after updating, it will POST. However, as I said, in my Os it claims 2166Mhz.

u/goldcakes · 1 pointr/bapcsalesaustralia

Your build is solid, you won’t notice your PSU. It’s good.

I would: keep everything but swap the case. Add extra 120mm fan (any, doesn’t matter).

You can squeeze a few dollars with this 2060 vendor, same GPU your list but cheaper. it is $492 after coupon. Free shipping.


Also go on amazon and get the $121 RAM that’s 3200. Ryzens really perform better with 3200 speed RAM, and you can absolutely OC those sticks especially with your quality mobo. I think you can expect 4% faster CPU bound performance with the 3200 RAM over 3000.


Happy building and don’t wait too long. I’ve lost on sweet deals because I kept on trying to wait for a better deal.

u/Prinapocalypse · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm pretty much certain it's the issue. I'm not an expert with RAM behavior but I'm actually surprised the PC even boots at all with mismatched RAM of two different sizes. I know it sucks to waste money but honestly I would advise just buying a matching set of RAM with a higher speed. Even if it's not the issue at the very least when you do figure it out you'll have a much faster and better performing PC.

You have the same motherboard as me and a nicer CPU and you're struggling to play a game I can play 1080p completely maxed out settings and I don't even have my CPU overclocked. Most brands will do but one of the absolute bargains atm is: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC/

I have a Gigabyte Z270-HD3 mobo and a single 8GB HyperX Fury 2666 DDR 4 ram stick (HX426C15FB/8).

Always had the idea that I could buy another one just like that so I have 2x8GB (16GB). I now have the money to buy the second stick but I can't find the exact stick.

I been thinking of buying Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000MHz C15 LED Desktop Memory - Black or Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Desktop Memory Kit - Black (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16) (most likely) so I can dual channel them. (suggestion for another one also accepted)

What would happen with the single 8GB I have, do I leave it on having 24GB or it would be better to ditch that one and stay with the new 16GB dual channel setup.

u/Ksielvin · 1 pointr/buildapc

Or put it towards faster RAM to get more out of the R5 3600. I think 16Gb 3200Mhz CL16 should be the minimum. It's slightly cheaper and far better than what OP linked.

For further performance one could buy 3600Mhz CL16 and still have enough left over the custom cooler.

u/Omegachai · 1 pointr/Amd

[This website] (https://www.amd.com/system/files/2017-06/am4-motherboard-memory-support-list-en_0.pdf) has a good AM4 compatibility list and the RAM you listed's part number doesn't apply. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean it won't work or will be incompatible, if you've already purchased it, see if it'll function at 3200Mhz, otherwise you can always return and buy a better pair.

Although something I've noticed is, [My RAM] (https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC) is on that same list yet I couldn't go past 2666Mhz, but more than likely, it was down to my motherboard (Gigabyte AB350-Gaming-3) just simply not liking it, I will be getting an X470 board on Friday though (Fatal1ty X470 Gaming K4) so hopefully I will finally go to full speed.

I hope this helps, sorry it's a bit of a tangent. :)

Quick edit: If your memory is not listed in QVL, it just means it hasn't been tested for whatever reason. It most likely will just work, but it's not guaranteed to work.

u/ToMeK2468_ · 1 pointr/Amd

You can get 16gb 3200mhz for very cheap. Here is a link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_DSfnDb51YFMTT

u/Babiesthealer4 · 1 pointr/halo

What's the price range? We can do one for the current-gen x, the slim, or the original.

Edit: The build came out at around $351. Do keep in mind I found all of these parts on Amazon, so pricing may be lower or higher depending on the storefront, and/or the country you live in. I excluded the case because you can get any micro-ATX pc case for the hardware, so you can spend as high or as low as you please.

Here are the beautiful specs:

Micro-ATX Motherboard: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FJ8V8FV?tag=wepcus-20

Power Supply: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MWHYQRC?tag=wepcus-20

CPU: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079D8FD28?creativeASIN=B079D8FD28&linkCode=w61&imprToken=NnNBJHN56xuMq2dMcwfY0A&slotNum=2&tag=wepcus-20
Note: The processor has pretty decent graphical capabilities.

RAM: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0143UM4TC?tag=wepcus-20

HDD/Hardrive: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D99KFPK?tag=wepcus-20

Also, if you take into account the hundreds of advantages a pc has over a console, this build is totally worth it.

This build is very upgrade friendly, so if you wanted to take this build even further, adding an RX 570 graphics card (this is an optional add-on/upgrade) to the build would bring a ps4 pro or a one x to its knees and ask to give oral. The price is about $160 on Amazon. Further on, consoles cannot truly render native 4K, but this graphics card can handle true 4k.

u/ryguy867 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I would go with the ryzen 5 3600 ($200 usd) as it is going to have excellent single and multi thread performance, and you don’t need more than 6 cores as most games only use 4 core which also means you’re more future proof too. I’d also get an x570 mobo so you could upgrade to a pcie gen 4 nvme ssd later on. Here is a good fast ddr4 ram kit because ryzen loves fast ram.

My CPU is a Ryzen 7 2700 and I have a MSI x470 Gaming Pro motherboard. I am going to build my system today and just found out about the issues people have with getting this RAM to OC speeds. I can return the RAM though Amazon and have a few weeks to do so. Would it be worth it to return it and get a dedicated kit for AMD that’s on my motherboards QVL? Or will overclocking show minimal gains in FPS and running at stock speed good enough? (main use will be gaming/streaming)

Also a first time builder just for background so the whole overclocking thing is still new territory.

I don't think the H110 will fit in the R5, but I have an H100i V2 and it has no issues keeping my 6700k at 4.5ghz cool at reasonable fan speeds. I would stick with the water cooler, big air is a pain to install and you have to be careful moving your case b/c of the weight hanging off the mobo. You might as well spend another $15 on faster RAM, I have this kit: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-PC4-25600-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1466696333&sr=8-2&keywords=corsair+lpx.

and swapped the psu to http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Modular-Crossfire-Warranty-210-GQ-0750-V1/dp/B017HA3RGE?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_2&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

this one i think, if i am reading that right i believe your motherboard is ddr4 just check that over first,

and then get that one cause its cheaper, and fast by a little bit

edit: just searched it up, their site says ddr4 so you should be good

If my RAM's serial number doesn't appear in the Memory Support list of my motherboard, is that bad?

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200mz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0143UM4TC/?tag=pcpapi-20&th=1

I actually don't have the hardware right now as I am below the age to work and must rely on my parents around the holidays to get the parts. I have a build on amazon the I can send you with what I want to buy.
MB (You Can Find it in Full ATX): https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B06Y67TLSL/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I3QNMQWZ44KXUA&colid=2CYVTYUZ6RNOF
RAM: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0143UM4TC/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I1IRFJRQYBX9NU&colid=2CYVTYUZ6RNOF
CPU: 1600
This should all work but you might want to change the RAM to be 8GB.
Also, I don't know how popular PC Builds are in Portugal, but there are a lot in the US.
I have checked all the products and in the questions, people say they had no problem putting two and two together.

u/Mat_the_Duck_Lord · 1 pointr/buildapc

Alright, I read that 24gb was like, minimum for what I wanted to stream and thought I might as well get a bit extra, but I'll look into it some more, thanks!

Edit: So something like this for the RAM and then this for the CPU?

Motherboard appears to be a B350M BAZOOKA

This is an old post but I just built my system and here are some things I learned.

Here is a good ram video to help you decide on Ram


I ended up getting this set DDR 4 3200

As for the motherboard I would get the Asus 570 Tuff Regular or Wifi version. The VRM is much better for overclocking and can run a 16 core no problem. Check out the video below. I think its around 21 MIN in he talks about the 570 Tuf.

Asus 570 Tuff Wifi

I think your original power supply is fine. That thing is old yes but I doubt you ever even made it work more than 50% over those 9 years.

Whatever ram you get make sure its on the QVL list. I learned that that hard way. more than once lol.

u/Dobbi_is_free · 1 pointr/buildapc

Which RAM kit should I get for R7 3700X?



Or do you guys have another recommendation? My budget is $100.

u/MisterMere · 1 pointr/buildapc

It's actually very cheap right now. I built a rig this week with 16gb DDR4 from Corsair

Less than 100 bucks on amazon right now, its generally pretty cheap!

u/VirtualUsual · 1 pointr/Amd

Unfortunately I can't speak German but here is a good set of RAM.

You want at least 3200mhz and CL16.

Be sure that your motherboard can support 3200mhz RAM


u/vexlit · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm thinking of buying a Ryzen 3600 and am wondering what RAM to buy. I saw another post mentioning Hynix vs Samsung and got slightly worried. Someone else also mentioned I could overclock either 3000/3200 to 3733 (optimal frequency for Ryzen apparently) and so it wouldn't matter which one I would get.

I'm currently thinking of buying one of these sets:




My other specs will be:

GPU: GTX 1060 3GB

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

Mobo: B350 Tomohawk (Arctic)

Essentially I'm not sure what matters for buying RAM (especially for Ryzen) other than its frequency. Are these choices good or should I go for something entirely different?

Thanks for any help!

the 3000mhz CL 15 is on https://www.corsair.com/us/en/RyzenCompatibility but idk when it was last updated

u/Ziggy_st · 1 pointr/Amd

I just found this ram on amazon.de , https://www.amazon.de/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-Performance-Arbeitsspeicher/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=3200%2Bmhz&qid=1562714702&s=gateway&sr=8-3&th=1

Do you think its good idea to buy or should i get some other brand?

edit. wrong link

u/Loki234 · 1 pointr/buildapc


I'm looking to upgrade from current PC (i5-4690k, Asus Maximus mobo and 32gb ram) and was looking at getting a Ryzen R5 3600 with an Asus ROG Strix X470-F mobo. Is that a good CPU-Motherboard combination?

My local Microcenter sells the combination for $340. Additionally, I was looking to buy a good ram kit (16gb- 2x8) to go with the CPU, but wasn't sure what is the ideal speed to get for Ryzen 3000 CPU's. I was hoping to complete my build for under $400 but the ram I was considering the Corsair Vengeance LPX but puts the entire kit just outside my price range.

If there is anywhere i can compromise, i would greatly appreciate that recommendation or is it worth the extra $22 to get the LPX ram?

u/gabeclark · 1 pointr/buildapc

I watched a tech deals video last night where he compared 2133 to 3600 on a 3900x. The by far best purchase was the 3200 cl 16. He was using the Corsair LPX Vengeance. 3600 did not even outperform the 3200 on more than one occasion and on top of that when it did it was only by 5 (give or take fps). Here’s the tech deals video which I would urge you to watch before you make your purchase.

u/Awsomeg1999 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Hey buddy! I just looked over your build and I like most of it but I do have a few suggestions.

  1. A lot of the comments are saying to got for Z270 but there really is no reason too, Z170 is cheaper and just as good for what you are doing (270 adds a lot of features which you probably wont be using)
  2. That being said, the first thing I would do is ditch the MSI motherboard, not only is it on the lower end of their product line (not necessarily bad), but MSI has a very bad review history on their boards... Lots of people reporting that they break and that the support is terrible. I would personally stay clear but thats up to you, instead I would recommend the Asus Z170 PRO GAMING/AURA, its actually $10 cheaper (at time of post) and much better.
  3. Love your RAM choice, but the same set at 3200MHZ is only $99 on Amazon right now :D faster for cheaper!
  4. The 212 Evo is nice, but I would HIGHLY recommend spending the 10 extra dollars and getting the 212X (about 100,000 more hours of life time I think)

    That's, all in all its a very solid build! If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me! I am an A+ Certified Professional who would be happy to help!

I like your suggestion but as it's an IGPU I'd switch the ram to a 2x8GB 3200mhz kit

u/manofjoint · -1 pointsr/buildapc

I would also advise a memory upgrade, also double check your memory’s compatibility!

I'm just after returning some Corsair RAM that wasn't fit to match the speeds it was advertised as. You can check the motherboard's QVL list under the specification section usually (My RAM wasn't listed). That Ryzen is going to love fast ram.

I'm also in the middle of my build, at the moment I have settled for a 1050 ti which is running 1080 very nicely, I would say it is currently one of the best 1080 gaming cards out there, but running at 2k is fine but like other's have also said you will need to reduce settings greatly for smooth gameplay on larger games I find.

Also, you should consider an ultrawide screen can increase the stress on GPU.

I'm just holding out, hopefully the market will look good by September for a new line-up of GPU's!

Edit: getting some feedback 'it's not the best..bla bla'

To clarify it's an awesome GPU for the price also it's aimed for 1080 market

u/tinkoh · -1 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Pretty good mid-tier build. I completely love your CPU and cooler picks.

Your GPU is pretty weak. Swap that for a GTX 1060. (only a little more, worth a ton more)

8GB RAM will definitely do but here's what I put in my mid-tier.

Also definitely consider getting an SSD as soon as possible.
