    Now all I need to decide on is a form factor, a home for it and and a motherboard !!
    I saw your other thread. I assume you will need at least an mATX motherboard? You said you need a slot for a soundcard. Would this have the required slots you need:

    Hey CAT.

    The reason for MATX is if I can drop a case size - if i'm going to put it in one of my existing cases then I'll stick with ATX.

    BUT - if I can get into a nice compact case with my 1080ti, a quiet air cooler for a 5800x and an ATX 180mm PSU then I'd prefer to go that way - then it can sit on my desk and the existing rig can stay under the desk in the Lian Li V700 (added bonus that it saves moving/touching the 4790k setup )

    Re: 5600x or 5800x - RAM CHOICE 2x16 Recommendation May 2021

    Well I thought I had my RAM sorted, but as you may see in my other post I had to send it back this morning.

    https://forums.hexus.net/general-dis...e-caution.html

    The Crucial 3600 2x16 CL16 kit is out of stock everywhere. I know CAT recommended this set due to the chips used working well with the 5800X but are there any others that are well tolerated??

    This is the set I use:
    https://www.ebuyer.com/1146117-adata...00716g18a-db10

    Has Hynix CJR and I managed to tweak them from 3600C18 to 3600C16.Apparently when I got them last year it was a 50:50 chance of getting Hynix CJR or Micron E-die. These appear to be the same mix of memory chips:
    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/kings...my-29c-ks.html

    These appear to be Hynix too but with tighter stock timings:
    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/kings...my-291-ks.html

    Alternatively you can get the Crucial 3200C16 32GB kit instead and try tweaking them:

    I saw this, in reality, just say they wouldn’t tweak. Outside of benchmarks would you notice any difference running these or the 3600 set ?

    For most non-gaming applications I suspect not a great deal. With games,it might make some difference:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWffQbAHD0g







    The first slide is from MSI(Zen3) and the second is from AMD(Zen2).

    However,3200MHZ is the maximum officially support speed. Anything over that is technically overclocking the IMC in the CPU. So you could run the RAM at 3200MHZ and attempt to further tighten the timings and subtimings.
