    If your working with largish video files, you can certainly use additional ram. However these days 32Gb is generally pretty good, however, as the video showed, in certain situations like encoding/finalizing video, larger ram had a direct benefit of making it faster 15% over 16Gb and ~8% over 32Gb.

    There is much more of a ceiling with AMD. In the big dimms there is no fast ram at all really.

    Nice, well done! I haven't received mine yet, still sitting on the same status. Looks like probably any day now though :thumbup:

    I'd have paid the extra for at least c16-3200. RAM is so cheap at the moment, with the exception of B-Die.

    Is he on the red or the blue team? Was it 4x8 or 2x16?

    Need everything else :D

    I think I am going matx Ryzen 5000 build. I am waiting for the new CPUs to be released before ordering the CPU and motherboard. Also waiting on the AMD GPUs. Will either get something AMD or the GTX 3060 once that is released.

    Shouldn't be long now :D

    That was the elcheapo $130 for my buddy

    The Crucial is much nicer. I don't know if it's just in my head but my system feels smoother

    Holy shit....finally it's arriving today :lol:

    One problem though.....sigh.....might have to rotate the pump on the X62 AIO.....I'm going from two sticks of ram to four so the pump outlets are going to get in the way of the first ram slot. Damn.
