Asus rampage v extreme that’s what I got and updated to latest bios.

 

i not sure, I been working on after effects for 2 years, I don’t know if more ram can benefit ae rendering time. I have this system for 4 yrs and I m at a stage want to upgrade whatever to a point it last another 2/4yrs. I personally do not know if more ram will help video rendering.

Not really, unless your renders are using up all your ram, which you can check in task manager. If you already use quad channel then it's probably as good as it gets.

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