    For Ryzen: yes, very much so. The fabric speed is linked to the RAM speed, and Ryzen's memory latency isn't that good to begin with (improved in Zen+, still not at Intel levels). Most gaming benchmarks show about 10% FPS improvements if you go ~3200 Mhz with decent timings. Above that improvements are slim at best.

    And even though memory is stupidly expensive and good memory kits even more so, the difference between a slow kit and a fast kit are usually less than 10% of your total build budget wise, so a smart investment.

    I'm pretty sure that my RAM would cost me more to buy now than it did 4 years ago, fair enough

    Gonna delete the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download stuff and try again.
    Have you got a Intel 600p ssd? Apparently it's incompatible with 1803.

    @Cosmin: I had a bunch of BSODs over the past months. From one every few days to four on a single evening. The error / stop code hinted at a faulty motherboard, specifically connected to the USB 3 portion. So fixing Windows does fuck all to fix that.

    I ordered some parts today, I can pick them up on Monday: 2600x, ASUS Prime X470-Pro, 16GB G.Skill Trident RGB 3200, 500GB 960EVO, Thermaltake 240mm AIO watercooler, Thermaltake View 31 RGB.

    I'll also pick up a new PSU as well on Monday because I might as well.

    The store threw in a free Raspberry Pi 3B+, so that's nice.

    Ok I got you, so there's a problem with the system itself somewhere. It may be worth investigating once you get your main rig online, as to what's causing it and maybe repurposing the old system as a media center/NAS/whatevs, especially since you can undervolt that CPU and cool it with something really quiet?

    New system looks sweet af, what PSU are you getting? I'm always recommending something something Seasonic for the build quality and the ease of cleaning - my Platinum 1000W basically allows you to remove the fan and thoroughly clean it with compressed air without voiding the warranty, was a really pleasant surprise.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    The store I'm picking stuff up from doesn't have Seasonic stocked, so it's going to be a Cooler Master one with 650W.

    Picked up all the things, a 2600X, Asus Prime, 16gb of G.Skill Trident RGB RAM, a 500gb Samsung 960 Evo, the aforementioned Cooler Master PSU, a Thermaltake Water 3.0 dual fan AIO. Everything went into a Thermaltake View 31 along with the old GTX970 and an old 2TB platter.



    I also picked up a cheap gt710 for the old PC since the mainboard didn't have an hdmi port or something for the i5's GPU.

    I screwed something up. I wanted to add a third 14cm intake fan on the front, but forgot to check if a third would even fit. No it wouldn't. So on the bottom it went. Also bought a led strip because the window wasn't lit enough. Caseking has an outlet store here in Berlin at their warehouse, so it was easy to get what I wanted.
    Since I couldn't cancel my Amazon order in time, I have another 14cm fan coming. I'm either sending it back or putting it into the bottom, it fits on more.



    Yes, I am basically doing what my 16yo always wanted to do but usually couldn't afford.

    Also at caseking they had some serious builds sitting around, like this submerged one.

    I feel so old. I see all these LED's, glass sidepanels and water cooling with dye in it and I just think; What's the point?

    Can you even buy a decent case these days that won't light up half the city?



    Also, get off my lawn.

    You can get very good cases without windows. They nowadays even are padded to dampen and still get good cooling results (Fractal Design Define R6).

    You just can't get them in beige. Turbo buttons and speed displays are also not really a thing anymore.
