Yeah, I really wish I could upgrade now. This MB has been giving me issues with random black screens (that eventually freezes the entire ssytem) for just about 2 years now and nothing helps....

Laithan I also had 64GB and then dropped down to 32GB and sold the set for the same reasons... 32GB is plenty (one day I know I will regret saying this lol)

You have a better chip than me. The best I was able to get was 4.5ghz w/32gb of RAM @ 2133mhz.
