  1. Thanks for the replies both. Great advice. Im not with my pc at the moment but I believe the current memory is 16gb of Kingston HyperX circa 2016. Can’t remember what frequency it’s running at, perhaps 2333? Finding another set of 16gb might be pretty tough at this point as it might be discontinued? Ill also likely upgrade the mobo and cpu at some point later this year, so I can switch this new RAM out if I do buy it. Will probably go Ryzen this time.
  2. Ah ok CAS timings. I remember this from upgrading in the distant past. Thanks So if I plug the RAM i linked in, my understanding is it will probably default to a lower frequency initially, perhaps 2133 as that’s the max officially supported by Intel? What would I need to do in order to increase the frequency slightly? I’m not bothered about huge Overclocks and would prefer to avoid messing with voltages etc. Is it simply a case of activating a profile in the mobo BIOS or something? Apologies for the dumb questions!
  3. Thanks for the immediate response. Apologies but what is a CL16 kit? I’m guessing the Corsair RAM I linked isn’t CL16? Many thanks
  4. Hello, I have an ageing Intel i5 6600k and a Z170 Pro Gaming mobo and I'm looking at 4x sticks of this RAM: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07RM39V5F/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Corsair VENGEANCELPX16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 3600 (Pc4-28800) C181.35V Desktop Memory - Black I've used Corsairs own compatibility tool and it indicated that this is compatible with my mobo, albeit the motherboard supports a maximum memory frequency of 3466mhz. However I’m uncertain whether the RAM will work with the i5 6600k at all? If it does work I’m presuming it will downclock the RAM speed by default and I’ll need an XMP profile to get the speed up? Can anyone provide some advice on these two points as I’m no expert? edit: I appreciate people will have a view as to whether 32gb is worth it, and I appreciate the viewpoint but I’d be grateful for answers to the questions above. Thanks
