Upgrading RAM/MOBO, give your thoughts please. Tags: Memory Overclocking RAM Last response: May 11, 2012 5:54 AM in Memory Share lordmanatee May 11, 2012 1:45:12 AM So, earlier today I received some help on whether or not to go for Ivy Bridge or not. After a lot of searching today I decided on this upgrade : RAM : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MOBO : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The only problem I forsee is that my current ASRock 870 Extreme 3 is an absolute piece, and my GPU artifacts anytime I overclock..so I've basically left that alone for now. Has anyone used the Extreme6? Any thoughts on any of this? Thanks for your help.
