I'm about to build this rig next week I haven't ordered the RAMs, and would like you guys' opinions on this. Which RAM should I get? I want 32GB because I do a lot of video editing. In terms of knowledge when it comes to speed/cas/latency, I have none. (though I have deducted to 2666>3000 ram speed) My other concern is the CRYORIG. If I go for this RAM set, will it fit? Is there anything I should change to this rig? Anything unnecessary? (It's probably come down to the RAM anyway..)

Thanks guys for any input

Im guessing you will be making a lot of videos? From what i know, (and i still consider myself to be a below average when it comes to building pcs) this should work alright, the one concern i have is the SSD, if your going to be making a lot of videos that can take up a lot of storage, so i would say get a hard drive when you start running low. If you cant add in a hard drive later then i would switch out the ssd for a hdd right now. All the ssd is going to do is increase load up times which will mainly be for booting up the operating system.

Go with the scythe Fuma instead. It is among the best air CPU coolers out there. Only problem is that you have to be careful not to over tighten the mounting screws. I also recommend this ram as it's cheaper and faster. The Scythe Fuma and the ram I chosen shouldn't have any compatibility issues. You may need to slightly whist the CPU fan higher though so the ram can fit.

that sounds like something I don't wanna do I'll probably stick with the cryorig for now because I plan to do custom water loop in 2 3 years anyways. Thanks man

I would just recommend two sticks of RAM. You don't want to use all of your RAM slots. I also chose low-profile RAM for you. Since you say you do a lot of video editing, I put in a 120gb SSD, for the OS and initial editing program, and the 2 TB HDD for all your actual videos. The difference between 2133 and 2300 is almost unnoticeable.

I actually like high-profile RAM, lol. but thanks anyway man. Is that PNY SSD decent? Ive always used Samsung so I'm a little skeptical

PNY is good. Samsung is better, but that SSD is good for its price.
