Hello,

 

My PC has had multiple RAM related crashes in the last couple months, with some blue screens and I have been thinking of upgrading for some time now. However my question is: Is it worth spending ~£80 on replacement DDR3 RAM and wait for Ryzen 6xxx or instead should I just straight up build a new one now.

 

I will be replacing CPU, MoBo, RAM, Case, Cooler, PSU and I will also be buying a M.2 drive. 

 

Thank you.

 

Edit; I guess I didn't search hard enough, I have found DDR3 ram for cheaper than £80 oopsie

I really like cake

Whoever tf is trying to sell you that is either stupid or on crack cause 8gb sticks go for 20$ tops atleast where i live (indo), there is high speed stuff thats expensive but just searching around for decent ics on generic rams will pretty much yeild pretty much the same oc ability, have a look at extremesystems ddr3 ic thread if you are interested in ddr3 oc

 

Id suggest doing a cmos reset to reset bios settings incase its misconfigured, also do a prime95 test of large and small(est) ffts, increase cpu vcore abit before hand just to rule the cpu out

Are both/all of your dimms failing or just one? When I tested my ram recently for errors only one had issues and that's certainly a much cheaper fix. 

 

They haven't even announced any specs for 6000 series yet, to the point where there are even rumors that they're skipping and going to 7000. (With how "rumors" and "leaks" have shaped up these past few years I'm just gonna assume it's true)

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

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Im not really sure. Is there a particular test I should run?

Not entirely true. At CES 2022, AMD announced both 6000 series, which is exclusively mobile and based on Zen 3+ architecture, and 7000 series, the forthcoming Zen 4 architecture. All the specs for 6000 series are known. It's basically just Zen 3 on a 6nm node and better power management for extended battery life. They were light on the Zen 4 details, but it's known that it will be an LGA socket, 5nm node, and will support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0. They also confirmed it will hit 5GHz+ clockspeeds.

I didn't realise Ryzen 6000 was exclusively mobile. 

Guessing then Ryzen 7000 is coming all that soon then and there's no point waiting?

Well, it's really tied to the architecture. 6000 series is Zen 3+. It's just AMD is only making Zen 3+ mobile CPUs. Since the only real benefit over Zen 3 is better efficiency for longer battery life, it doesn't really add much to desktop.

 

Zen 4 is coming second half 2022. That could be as early as July or late as December, though.
