That 512 will fill up fast if you're loading windows and your games on it (which you definitely want to do). Also, see if you can find a faster and lower latency ram kit too if you can. Having lower timing for everything your computer does and storing and accessing everything faster is definitely worth it.

(If you're going water cooled, might want to think about overclocking if you want to get every bit of juice out of every game)
What RAM would you suggest @flavorysphinx ?

Get some Ironwolf that are 5900RPM less noisy and perform really close to a 7200RPM drive. For store files don't go to 7200RPM only if you are planing doing a Steam Library
Thats a problem in Windows 10 and it will actually break your drive over time so you need to download hard drive sentinel so you can override it
Nothing wrong with your HDD Windows 10 does that to almost all HDD´s its some sort of power saving feature called APM and you cant turn it off which is the dumbest idea ever!

I have 4x Seagate Ironwolf drives and all of them went click crazy the second i installed Windows 10 and it drove me insane so i asked for a advice and was told hard drive sentinel can override that APM crap

Its free but it will nag you to buy and i ended up buying it as its a useful program
Its the bigest reason why i still use Windows 7 but i do have Windows 10 on another SSD if want to play games that has DX12

Edit: how to force override APM in Windows 10 download hard drive sentinel install it and go to configuration->disk control->don't allow spin down of the disks
and put the value * for all

Done problem fixed and your drives wont sound like an old transmission with broken gears

That's $80 more than the OP's original selection. Yes, 3200CL14 should be faster than 3000CL15, but not $80 faster. Even then, the Ripjaws V are available with the same specs for $15 less or Team Dark Pro for $35 less if you're not just looking for RGB. If the OP wants to spend more for cosmetic, fine. It's not a good price/performance choice though.

Thanks bro !
I would give a try, because in linux is less noisy in IDLE. But when I do I/O still very noisy compared with other driver. For example the Barracuda Pro 4TB 7200RPM

I7 8700K@4.7Ghz / Z370-A / 2X8GB 3200Mhz ADATA Spectrix D40 / 1TB Intel 600P / EVO 850 250GB / 4TB WD Gold / RTX 2080 GAMING OC / NZXT Noctis 450 ROG / EVGA G2 850W@ECO
Heatkiller REV 3.0 / XSPC EX360 / DDC 3.25 + EK-XRES / 3x Venturi HF-12 PWM

I had only had WD Green´s and one WD Red before i moved to Seagate Ironwolf and Ironwolf Pro drives so i am not an expert on HDD noise levels
My Ironwolf and Ironwolf Pro´s are not loud but they are not as quiet as the old WD Green´s i had
