Build Upgrade

1 hour ago, Martin26 said:

Another stick of 2499 will do or a must for faster sticks??

I believe 2499 is a typo. or some new product I havent heard of

if you currently only have 1 stick ram and not willing to sell it, by any one more ram same / faster than current ram (it will be limited to lower ram speed anyway but you can then try to overclock it~~).

Dont worry to mix rams

 

Otherwise sell the ram and buy a pair 2x8gb 3000+mhz

looks good to me. if you really want to upgrade, get more ram, get a better cooler, get faster monitor. (do those in that order).

ram overclock perhaps, or new kit like vengeance LPX. First gen Ryzen was pretty sensitive to ram speed, DDR4 3000 does wonders for performance.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

Good day, I bought a pair of 3000mhz 8gbx2 RAM Nighthawk. Now, the mobo manual told me to slot them on the 2nd and 4th slots but when I do that, it only reads a single stick when I boot it up. On the other hand, when i put the sticks side-by-side, they work. 🤔

When I do the 1st method, it only reads 8gb while on the 2nd one, side by side, it reads 16gb.
