My RAM arrived today
I’ve added a set of Ballistix Gaming 2 times 4GB DDR4 2400MHz. I already had the exact same set, so that makes a total of 16GB worth of precious overpriced DRAM. Allowing Windows 10 more RAM for use as IO-cache really makes a performance jump. I leave my PC running so technically I can live with slow mechanical hard drives. And I’ve lived with Pentium 166 MHz with MMX, so I’m also patient.
For those who are wondering:
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1400 4C/8T, stock @3.2 GHz, clocked to 3.3 GHz, disabled power saving.
- RAM: 4 X Ballistix Gaming 4GB DDR4 2400MHz. (16GB)
- GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX Gaming RX 570, 4GB of VRAM
- MOBO: ASUS Prime B350
- About 6 TB of data storage on mechanical HD’s
