Getting an i5 9600k (from i5 8400), i need more ram for photoshop and 3dsmax. 

Yeah, you'll be fine. I'm pretty sure 3DSmax will love more ram, too.

I plan to upgrade from 16gb (2x8gb) ram to 32 gb (4x8gb) ram, all will be running at the same speed and populate all the slots on my motherboard (z370m). Will it slow down the pc? (boot and general uses). Thanks.

depending on the IMC and freq./timing conditions, it may have more difficulty running at single channel speeds.

The motherboard supports dual channel and i'll fill up all 4 slots with the same kind of ram. I'm not sure if that'll cause any issue however.

What's the CPU and why are you upgrading?

 

Ryzen is known for having issues with populating channels too much, so with Intel you should be fine.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

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

it'll run it, but your problem mileage may vary (meaning it depends on what you call a problem).

no, it won't slow down the PC at all, tough you probably won't see any benefit from the upgrade if you;re not running a workload that benefits from all that RAM capacity.

Recently I started working on larger project in Phtoshop and 3dsmax (both running at the same time). Ram usage is always above 90% so yeah, pretty sure i need more ram. Photoshop went "not responding" today and i can't take it anymore. Ram was 99%-100% atm.
