RAM "upgrade" for Board

Hello Everyone.

I have an AsRock z370 ITX MOBO and gonna upgrade RAM since the kit I have has been very sluggish once several functions are occurring at once.

Currently have: GSkill Trident 16GB (8GB x2) [F4 3200C14D 16GTZ DDR4 3200 CL 14-14-14-34 1.35v]

Looking to get this

TH has this article which they speak of THIS kit as being the top

Agree? Disagree? Something else?

Please elaborate.

Well it is slower than what you have but there is more of it so it will only help if you are running out of ram which you can check in task manager.

Your PC being sluggish under loads does not mean its RAM and buying more RAM is not going to help if its the CPU thats the problem
You dont have the CPU listed and as said if its RAM you can check in task manager to see how much us being used

You're right

So I have an i5 8400 Coffee Lake. Much of the sluggishness happens when (if) I have say 3+ downloads going at the same time (REALLY sluggish) or when I have several vidz going at the same time (plus all the browser windows that I may already have open)

after doing a test of 3 files downloading at the same time (1.2 GB, 1.6GB and 513MB) I had an avg of 79% CPU usage and 10.0 GB of RAM during the time. IF I went with another file it would grind my system to a near halt and most of the browser tabs could not be used or opened.

Not to mention not being able to play vid or any other type of activity.

Thus again I wonder if it is a RAM issue or let me know if there could be something else going down.

I don't think it's that but, alright here are the temps that are typical



I have a Noctua NH-9s HS on the i5 8400 that I'm running.

I don't know if it's necessarily the chip itself but it could be. I usually use this comp as a workstation/internet/older games.

It's NEVER had an issue during gaming (highest stress environment MAYBE StarCraft II) and when it will get sluggish it's during browsing sessions (I have sometimes purposely opened MULTIPLE browsers with several different youtube vids playing at once) or downloading as I previously posted.

Disk usage?
Tried another browser?

Lots of tabs can chew up RAM but provided you don't hit ~16GB used you are ok and need to look elsewhere for your problem.

CPU usage does seem kinda high can you show what is using it in taskmanager.?
Just a single 8k video can bring my overclocked 7700K to its knees so it really depends on what you are playing and file codecs.
