    more RAM please?

    Ah, I had messed up my PC part picker list and had inserted two sets of RAM sticks, no wonder I exceeded the voltage! Looked at again 16GB or 32GB, 2133Mhz Corsair Vengence Pro RAM will be ok but with your suggestion about over capacity Arnold I'll be going with 16. 2133Mhz seems to be the limit, 2400Mhz operates at 1.65 volts. Looking around the forum there's a load of useful stuff here. Thanks Brett & Arnold, I'll be back. Regards, Mark
  2. Hi, having moved to P3D V4 I'm really pleased with it, finding it far better than all of its predecessors, I've had them all from FSX onwards. It runs well on my PC despite having just 8GB RAM, the only nuisance being slow texture loading with the occasional bit of black scenery, aircraft and ai that can take 10-20 secs to complete. My motherboard is an Asus Z87-A and I'm restricted to DDR3 memory and 1.5 volts, currently I have a pair of 1600Mhz 4GB sticks. The CPU is an i7 4770K Haswell Processor overclocked to 4.3GHz, GPU is a GTX1060, 6GB. A new PC is not on the cards but what benefits if any would something like a pair of 8GB, 1866Mhz sticks bring to the sim with my current system now? I don't see any way of getting more than 16GB withoug busting through 1.5v. Regards, Mark
