It's pretty straight forward, just buy the Deluxe version online here for $14 and then burn the x64 ISO to CD-R or make a bootable USB ISO thumbdrive and boot it. Remember you want the Deluxe version because it includes the x64 ISO to scan your giant 64GB's of memory. The scariest thing about having that amount of memory is finding out which stick is bad later if that should occur. Just let the program run checks and stress test it over night. You're going to have 64GB of memory to test and plow through to make sure you don't have any errors or faulty sticks. Better to know that all of your memory works fine than to find out later which 1 of the 8 sticks are bad or even a combination of 2 out of 8 or more are bad etc...

For a computer case you definitely want a Full Tower case, the Corsair cases are popular for watercooling as is the H100i. I made the mistake of trying to watercool on my first build using a Mid-Tower case and ran out of room to mount things.

You seem to like going hard.

Corsair 900D case!
H100i for simple all-in-one cooler. Custom open water-cooling loop for some serious stuff.

Here's some advice which may well save you a number of headaches in terms of getting 64GB of ANY kind ofmemo ry to run well, or at all, on a RIVE...

First, while I highly recommend purchasing the entire amount of memory in one kit rather than adding two different kits (even if iidentical) together, itisilnot always difficult to get them to work together without issue. The first thing you need to do tho is ensure that ALL of the sticks have the same revision number, which means same IC's. If the two kits are different, return the worse of the two (you want Hynix CFR or Samsung HYK0/HCH9 IC's) to Corsair and request a set with a matching revision number.

Secondly, you absolutely need to use the EZ_PLUG2 which is the 4pin FDD PWR connection on the board, which is designed topprovide extra voltage to the DIMMs (as in more stable and a higher overhead). It was designed specifically for your situation, but I use it even with my 4x4GB Ripjaws Z and Trident X kits because it has given me a significant increase in stability at higher clocks.

Remembertthat the speed of the memory when using such high densities is dependent upon the CPU IMC far more than the sticks themselves. It is very possible that the fastest you will get is 1600 with tight timings.

You will need some extra VTT and VCCSA voltage, just don't exceed 1.2v (keep as low as is stable).

Okey anoob, I'll definetly get that MemTest.

I decided to go for the CaseLabs TH 10 case. Its overkill, but I figure bigger is better like you say.

I got 2x 32gb kits, I couldnt get my hands on 1x64. I'm afraid I dont know what IC's is nor revision number is. How /where do I find this number and how do I know which one is worse of the two?

Thank you guys again for helping me out. Alot I dont know.
