Quick question about what RAM I should get:

For the same price I can either get 32GB 1866 Dominator RAM or 32GB 2133 Vengeance RAM???

Any other suggestions for similarly priced 32GB kits are much appreciated

Go with the Vengeance RAM, higher speeds for the same price!

Cool, just checking there was no benefit of going with the dominators!

If you plan to watercool them (way overkill) then get the Doms, if not, the Vengeance will work GREAT!

any reason other than compatability? As I plan on using universal blocks so Vengeance wouldn't be an issue

Nope, no issues then! Universal blocks will work well!

good good biggrin.gif EK have some sexy ones, anodized aluminium wink.gif

got some painting done today and made the new IO shield, tested it out with the IO shield from my current PC and it needs a little more filing, when I am happy and have tested it with the actual motherboard I will fix it in place with something like JB weld but I want to be absolutely certain before I do that!

Got some more coats on the left side panel and did the first 2 coats on the right side panel, could each do with another coat or two as they aren't as even as I would like, I have also just ordered a can of Plastikote Matt white spray paint which I will use as a final coat. Tomorrow I will try to finish priming the side panels and feet and if there is time I will try prime the metal of the case.

Pictures from today

Finished up priming the side panels today, just waiting on the matt white paint to arrive which should be tomorrow. Also painted the apple logos on the side panels and primed the feet and handles. I was initially going to paint the logos gloss black but then my Teacher persuaded me to try some BMW graphite paint, which is a dark grey and is slightly sparkly, absolutely love it!
