The thermal paste is bad and isn't needed, the psu isn't good and is overpriced

I'm between G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series CORSAIR Vengeance or Crucial Ballistix Sport

Those all mean nothing without the timings and speed.

What is this build for?

I think he just mean reliablility? Because speed doesnt matter that much unless you are benchmarking or pro editing

I have seen some very conflicting results when it comes to ram speed and gaming. As for reliability, they are all equal along with all other ram unless they hand test each stick by torture testing it.
