New guy here.. Sorry... So lots of ram

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
I think I errored in replying to a different thread. My bad. Sorry.

I am brand new to overclocking - My last fastest PC was when Alienware was a company and built an awesome p2-400 with 128 gigs of sd ram - 3 grand..

Since then I've built pcs but have been out of the scene for a long time, and ram has changed.

So here's the dumb question. I'm going to build a system using a x99 asus rampage 5 extreme and a haswell 3.5 - I was about to buy 128 gigs worth of ddr 4 2300 ram when I found out ram isn't as simple as it was when I was bragging about the sd ram.

For a home system that will do rendering, gaming and programming what is overkill for ram?

What is the differences between ram? I am willing to lightly overcolock - I'm going to run the haswell at 3.7 and I'll be asking about cooling issues in a different section.

If you had a grand you could use for ram, would you spend it it all for 128 gigs of ram? If so, what type and why? I know the board can convert the ram into an upper memory space - so is that a consideration? Or would you use less ram and toss it at a titan card?

What should I buy,what can I clock it to, and if it glows that's bonus points smile.gif

Thanx!

i think 128gb's of memory is unneeded for your intentions.

64gb it's probably too much.

also 128gb's of sdram??

oh and, welcome to OCN!

128 megs of sd 100 ram.


it was a p2 400 (or 450 - that was like 18 years ago) and had a gigantic 540 meg hard drive. It was a massive upgrade from my 386 dx2 50 which was rocking cause I paid for a viking chip to up my colors and actually spent 140 bucks to get 9600 baud smile.gif

I actually got to play mechwarrior on it after configuring the dos upper and lower memory.

And I do still have my pong game. smile.gif

neway

So maxing out memory now is just a waste of cash?

99% of people would have leftover ram with 16gb total available.

wait. what? maxing out the old school rig?

old rig should be super cheap to max out on ram? if not, new rig, 16gb is enough 32gb is overkill, and anything over that is pure EPEEN..

Get the Klevv Cras memory if you want stuff that glows (see my avatar) Best looking memory out there. Other than that agree with poster above me

So on an overclocking forum, 2 16 gig sticks is overkill?

That's music to my ears.

With the asus rampage 5 and the haswell 3.5 what are the best 2 sticks to buy?
post #7 of 50
IMO anything more than 16gb seems to be a waste, i would look for some low timings high speed, 1800,2100 and 2400. everything outside of that seems to have the timings go way out of wack.

See, this is where I get worried. Specs say 2300, and you say It's ok for 3200. In the good old days, you just looked at the specs and grabbed the right parts - What would I need to do on the rampage board to get the 3200 to run? Is it plug and play?

Is more sticks of ram better than less sticks of ram?

Reason I'm asking is If there ever comes a time for a reason to max out the board, i would rather have 2 16's instead of 4 8's.

Like anything else your "guaranteed" what is on the box after that there are no guarantees. I would buy for what you want and any overclocks are just a bonus, but check the timmings too.
