Hi guys,

I have a set of F3-12800CL9T2-24GBRL ram that comes in 6 x 4gb sticks from my old build. However, the board only supports 4 sticks. I would do fine just using 4 sticks of these ram, but would they be compatible with the board? Would it be wise to get another board with 6 slots? If so which one?

Thanks!

Best solution

Yes, they will run just fine :)  with 4x4GB sticks you'll have 16GB RAM in total which is more than enough for everything.

Thank you! I do a lot of autocad/multitasking but I think that 16gb should be fine compared to the 24gb I have now..

You're welcome :) 
16GB would be more than enough for your programs because difference between 16GB and 24GB is like 3~5% in your programs

Sorry for the questions.. but I am wondering also if I can just use my old ssd with windows and 1tb HD and transfer it to the new computer? Kind of like Plug and Play? That way I can save money.

I have a 930 i7 with an Asus p68x mobo with the ATI 5970. The reason why I want a new build is because its a little old (not that the first gen i7 is THAT old) and the GPU heats up so much(70C idle, 90> while gaming).

I am still a little skeptical whether I should just change out the GPU or get an entirely new build. I was thinking about the EVGA 780ti

You should be able to migrate you SSD and HDD to new build but not sure about windows, better to make fresh install of the windows with new build also GTX-780ti is good but it's not worth the money with 1080p monitor, in games you'll have 15~20-FPS more with GTX-780ti but is it worth to pay extra 190$ for 15~20 more FPS in games at 1080P? (almost 1$ for 1-FPS :D )
