    [WTB] DDR3 32GB Memory (4x8GB or 2x16GB)

    I actually bought the memory from this seller. Had 4 sets. I bought one. Works well if you need 16GB of 2133 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Patriot-Viper-3-16GB-2x-8GB-240-Pin-DDR3-2133-PC3-17000-Desktop-Memory/283436672361?hash=item41fe246569:g:-yYAAOSwSjpcoSTK&frcectupt=true

    Ahh the old days of rivatuner. Easy way to things now is to download MSI Afterburner. Easy to use GUI for overclocking.
  3. It really depends on the power supply and the overclock you are applying. I would say that 99% of PSUs these days are a single 12v rail so it doesnt matter what cable you use, just dont exceed it rated limit per cable. I forget what 23 AWG wire limit is on the 8pin. But it is at least 300 watts. I dont think you can pull that much juice unless the card has a modded bios and you are on LN2. Otherwise it will just melt the card with voltage hehe. So with your particular setup, it doesnt matter. Whatever looks cleaner.

    Seems like its not a NVME drive but rather a SATA drive in a M.2 Slot.

    Asus vega 56 bios flash

    I think I deleted the double post for ya It happens to me sometimes.
  10. Update: The drive finally showed up in the mail. About 2 weeks. Drive is actually faster than I thought. I'm going to buy another one for my PS3 All sold out.... I found it interesting that the memory buffer is ECC. Might be the only thing that makes it a "Enterprise" drive honestly.

  11. Amazon never lists things right i've noticed. I just double check the manufacture page before buying any electronics from Amazon.
  12. On the 1660Ti since the cards are so closely prices, it comes down to preference honestly. You enjoying the Gigabyte card Fragsman?

    New build _ PLAN

    Woot! Glad you got the computer you wanted and it preforms better than expected.
  14. I found a review. Its within the realm of any 2015 SSD. Samsung Evo 840 is the best comparison. The drive has horrible 4k read depth but that is expected for the time. Good drive for games if its $40. Im tempted to pick up a few myself. 1,850 TB Write endurance. You will never kill this drive from use. Only age and power on time. Edit: I bought one as a temp drive, now i can put my spare intel 730 to better use. It was full of junk and became a storage drive instead. Not a good use for such a nice drive. This micron will fill those shoes.
  15. I dont know about any "profiles" in the BIOS besides XMP. So if you bought 2400 sticks you would need to manually adjust it. With such a small increase in speed (on the low end), jumping to 2666 shouldnt require any more voltage. If your unluckly it would be 1.35v from the stock 1.2v many low speed memory uses. There is always a chance the 2400 ram cant go higher which is why it was binned so low in the first place.
