Get different RAM, intel recommends a max of 1.5V you have 1.6V. Other than that, you can pick up a better 770, supper clocked? or a 290 XFX DD black like jorro2000lol said.

Can you reccomend some 8gb ram to me that is red? I would like it to be red because I have a windowed case and I want the colors to match

Would the HERO VII be capable of the ram i'm currently buying or is it just intel

It will handle the one I suggested just fine. You won't even notice a difference between the speeds.

If u have $100 and u r doing more gaming than anything else get a better gpu, like an r9 290 or the cheapest gtx 780(but that's prob more than an xtra 100 :P)
