Should I sell my 16GB Optane Memory or keep it?

Go to solution Solved by SidM,

ya sell it, it wont be of much use since you can already keep frequent applications on the ssd. Also wowwww, i have the same cooling setup as you, an x72 with 6 ll120s in push pull. And let me tell you the rgb on those maglev fans are crap. Get ll120s everywhere they will perfectly match that beautiful pc 011 dynamic

Basically I’m about to upgrade from an Alienware prebuilt, and I’ll be selling the old parts from the Alienware that I’m not using. Should I use the 16GB of Optane Memory that came with the Alienware or sell it?

 

New PC(I know the cooler is overkill, I’m planning on getting a high end zen 2 chip at the end of next year):

Yeah, I really want this build to look amazing. Can’t seem to find individually sleeved PSU cables at my local stores though, probably have to order them online.

 

I looked for help on Corsair forums and basically all I got was ‘Stick to 6 fans’ since the RGB LED Fan Controller that comes with the LL120 3 pack only supports 6 fans, and according to the Mod on the Corsair forums the only splitters I’d be able to get can only be found on Ebay, so I just stuck with non RGB fans since those ML120 Whites only need 1 PWM connection. If I somehow find a solution to this I’d be more than happy to upgrade those fans to LL120s. Also I wouldn’t mind using the ML fans as rad fans since they have pretty high SP and airflow compared to the LL fans.

Unless you wanna see RGB on both sides of the rad I’d suggest keeping them to one side only, push pull doesn’t really help a lot(Linus did a video on push vs pull vs push pull I think, all three had no difference.

thats where you are wrong my friend, if done correctly you can have upto 12 fans. The 6 fan bay connects to a commander pro. So through the commander pro you can connect 2 six fan bays and therefore have a total of 12 fans.

Ah, so I purchase 2 3packs of LL120s to get 2 RGB Fan controllers, then a Commander pro to link them together?

So basically, have 6 fans connected to one fan controller, and 3 on the other. then connect both controllers to the commander pro and plug in the commander pro?
