    Rate my build

    I’m thinking of switching the CL18 I already bought for a CL14, but not sure if the performance uptick will be worth

    gonna be doing open loop + overclocking, will 1000w be enough for that?

    this build is for video editing, coding, and ofc gaming

      All this for a card game?

      I see what looks like the 850W PSU at

      Yes, I see the typo on the CPU there. Right off the bat I would go with a pair of 16GB RAM sticks.

      I could go on but this looks to be a build that ignores budget. Sure, but why that RAM? Very odd.

        what’s wrong with the ram? I was under the impression that tasks like video editing would use 32gb.
        Yeah I’m in a position where I can take as long as I want to save for this with minimal living costs, so I’m trying to future proof as much as possible

        Also I’m not understanding the card game reference

          That RAM

          Is four sticks of 8GB. My advice is 2 stick of 16GB. Why? Bus loading.

          Spending more on a motherboard does not look to do any future proofing. Also,2560-2.html is old but still relevant. I would not buy a sound card unless I had same or more money in the speaker system.

          As to the card game you used the Acronym OFC so I looked it up.

          No point future proofing

          I know this is late by a lot but there’s no point future proofing as the market is extremely competitive, and new products are getting dishes out every couple months.

      ofc is just shorthand for Of Course lol

      Thanks, I’ll switch to 2x16GB instead, I wanted to change to CL14 anyway

      I do have a good speaker system, and I’m also a musician, so good sound is highly important to me

      Thanks for the advice!
