InWin Chopin (Ryzen 2400G) Upgrades

Noyu
 Share

Hiii guys!

 

It's been a long time since I've posted here.

Alot has happened to me in terms of PC building and I ended up with my current build in an InWin Chopin

 

Like so:

 

Parts Brand/Model
APU AMD Ryzen 5 2400G
Motherboard Gigabyte AB350N GAMING-WIFI
Memory G.Skill Trident Z F4-3200C16D-16GTZSK
Storage - SSD 250GB Samsung 850 EVO
Storage - HDD 2.5" 1TB WD Blue WD10SPZX
Case

InWin Chopin Black

 

I brought it with me for an overseas assignment and it has been serving me for around 6 months now.

Anyhoo, I'm going home for the christmas season and I'm contemplating if I should do some upgrades.

 

1. M.2 SSD + 1TB HDD

My current SSD is my first ever SSD from my first ever build a very, very long time ago.

I'm thinking of retiring it and installing it in my GF's laptop, and buying an M.2 SSD to replace it.

This will then free up an HDD slot and I can add another 1TB HDD.

 

2. Cryorig C7

Currently just using a modded stock cooler (removed the shroud to make it fit).

This is just to make everything pretty haha

Should I get the Cu version?

 

3. RAM RAM RAM

How is RAM still expensive?

Anyways, I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to overclock my TridentZ's to 3200MHz.

Simply enabling XMP makes windows crash (sometimes at boot, sometimes after a few minutes of use).

I can't even get it up to 2666MHz. Not sure if it's just really bad luck with the RAM kit and the motherboard and the APU I have.
Anyhoo my current idea is to sell it for about 80% of the SRP and buy a FlareX kit.

Oooooor just wait for the RAM prices to drop, if they ever will.

 

Thoughts? Suggestions? Violent Reactions?

Did you increase the voltage to your RAM? A lot of people will tell you an M.2 isn’t worth it and you should just get a bigger 2.5” cause it’ll be the same price. I don’t really care, get what you want. The C7 is pretty good. Comparable to like the NH-U14S I believe. Just make sure there is enough clearance for it in the case. I don’t know what you use your PC for so knowing that might help... if you game though your money will be best spent, obviously, on a GPU.
