    You'll never get the ram anywhere near that speed the 32gb will be more helpful.

    A 1700x and 1800x will both run 4.0-4.1 oced so no reason to spend the extra.

    Upgraded to a 1tb 960 Evo.

    Swapped to a usually better overall board. And cooler that will allow a max oc and allow other upgrades to stay on budget
