  1. Looking at Samsung 970 Evo 1Tb M.2-2280 or Intel 660P for this board. It will hold windows 10. Would not hold photos and videos on it but run other programs off it. Price wise, is it better choice for intel 2Tb than 1Tb 970 pro (also for future proofing). 


  2. Main use of the PC will be home video editing , browsing and general use. Will I be better of with DDR4 2 x 16Gb 2200Mhz or 2 x 8Gb 3000Mhz memory please? Will CL make a great deal of noticeable difference? 


    May overclock and use for games later on.


    Based on Ryzen 2700X / Crosshair VII.

    As mentioned by JonnyGuru, the RM750i only comes with a single EPS12V (CPU) power cable out of the box. As per above, it is possible to buy additional EPS12v cables separately if you choose, however as already mentioned by others the additional CPU power connector on your motherboard is optional. It's not required, even for a 2700x - unless you're doing some crazy LN2 overclocking or something. Plug in the 4+4 EPS12v power cable to the 8pin connector on the motherboard and leave the 4pin connector empty.




    I have been away (no access to internet). Apologies for being naive, do I just use the EATX12V_1 and ignore the EATX12V_2 connector?

    Where are you shopping / located? Budget?

    What ram are you using?

    Mostly Amazon in UK. Budget is around £1,500ish ($1,900). Not decided on memory but need 2 x 8Gb @ 32Mhz. Video card - considering 

    Sapphire - Radeon RX 590 8 GB NITRO+.

  5. It is a few years since I last built a PC. Am puzzled with the PSU and Asus Crosshair VII Hero Motherboard connections to Corsair RM750i PSU. I can see where the 24pin connection goes from MB to PSU but not sure about the 8 pin / 4pin connections on the MB. Using Ryzen 2700X CPU, do I need the 8+4 connections and where does the other end go on the PSU please?
