    Did I goof on this RAM? Speed question

    Did you ever think that I might have not only checked the Asus website but others as well. I've only been an enthusiast since 1998. A quick search produced this.......... "According to ASUS, the PRIME Z370-A supports DDR4 memories up to 4,000 MHz. The ASUS PRIME Z370-A has four memory sockets...

    Did I goof on this RAM? Speed question

    If you look at the QVL for memory for that board.... It looks like the memory kit that you picked is not "officially" supported. There are very 32GB modules that board particular supports at ANY speed. You would have to install 4 x 16GB and not 2 x 32GB to have 64GB of usable memory.

    A man walks up to you with a 1080Ti and a 5700XT and says, "Free. Choose one."

    Already have an RTX 2080. But I'd still go with the 1080ti to replace the 1070 in my #2 rig.

    Boxed ATI Rage Fury MAXX

    I had one of these... back in the day. It NEVER ran right. I would think that it's only value is collectability.

    Paranoia thread: what would you do if GPU failed?

    When my 1080 borked, I pulled the 1070 out of my secondary rig. I happened to have a small gaming network. Hardware gets bumped down when I upgrade. Once I no longer have a rig on my lan to put parts in, the parts get sold off, traded or put in something for someone else. It's a good thing that...

    Sticking With Windows 7? The Forecast Calls For Pain

    This.... I put together a gaming rig out of spare parts to leave at a buddy's house. I had the same issues when updating Windows 7. Since the rig was mostly old or used parts, I thought it was hardware problems. Everything worked fine... accept for Windows Update. I left it alone to do all my...

    USPS' Bizarre Reason For Denying Insurance Claim

    I regularly ship stuff to friends in eastern Europe. I use USPS and ship Express Mail with tracking and insurance. It's expensive, but it gets there. Last parcel I sent to Romania got there from Chicago in 5 days. Too bad the fuckers there held it in customs for almost 10 days. With the tracking...

    Squeeze more out of 955BE?

    I have a spare rig with 965BE @3.9Ghz on a Gigabyte 790FX board, with 8 gigs of ram and a 6950. it's still a fairly competent rig. It's not going to run the newest, latest, best at high resolutions. But, it does fine with most older titles on a 22" monitor. Depending on chip-set, your board is...
