Memory and Cooling Queries

Recommended Posts

Need some advice on the above please. Am in the process of upgrading my system to accommodate PRD V4. Have selected the following parts so far.

CPU: IntelCore i7 7700K Kabylake 4.2Ghz 8MB

GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX1080Ti Gaming OC 11GB

Mem: Corsair 16GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black

The questions are, do you think I need to integrate coolers for the CPU and the GPU and do you think that 16 GB is adequate or should I go for 32GB

I dont intend to over clock the system  at present, but I might consider it in the future.

I am going to use my existing mother board which is an Asus Z79 Pro

Cheers,

 

Neil

No need to integrate coolers unless you're over clocking. Now that P3D is 64bit the more system and video memory the better.

I have read that 32gig memory would be in your best interests with v4, no telling what is on the horizon and as long as you are rebuilding you might as well set yourself on the right path.

Thanks for the replies, looks like I will go for 32Gb memory, and forget the coolers.

Cheers,
