u should be running a core i7 3930K with the water cooler overclocked to about 4.8 GHz
8 GB of 2133 MHz ram would be needed (yes FSX will use)

Sorry if I am missing something straightforward, but one looks like an 8GB kit while the other looks like a 16GB kit (with slightly higher timings). Is that the only difference? Why would you only recommend 8GB if going z77? I need to go z77 if I want RAID 0 SSD support (Trim and Garbage). Otherwise I think I might just jump up to these platinums. Would like to know the difference (if I am missing something) between the two you shown other than what is mentioned above?

Thanks!

Thanks!

I recommend 8 GB for Z77 because with only 2 sticks in dual channel (instead of 4) you will have an easier time overclocking and getting higher clocks. same with X79 I recommend 4 sticks (instead of 8)
2133 MHz at CAS 9 is a lot faster than 1600 MHz at CAS 8 obviously

Consider the memory changed and hardware list updated! Placing order on all final parts thanks smile.gif +1 !

Why not look for one of those manufacturers of the seats for the Shrek ride at Universal Studios, that would solve the motion problem. 25 years ago I used to work as a security guard in a Airbus 320 simulator training facility and though theirs cost millions, you are on the right track. Great effort and hope you win some kind of award.

All parts and misc hardware have arrived! Build starts tomorrow a.m. Going to be using the Asus board shown in 1st post to HOPEFULLY hit 5.1Ghz but I will be happy with 4.8.
