Just wanted to drop a warning about the Enermax Liqtech TR4. They have known issues with corrosion and build-up. If you're within your return period I would suggest returning it and going for an air cooler. Otherwise keep a close eye on temps and performance, Enermax has at least been good about RMA's. I'm on my 3rd unit, but am actually pretty content with my Noctua U14S TR4 air cooler for the time being and don't plan on installing it. If I could get my money back on the Enermax I would.
Been a while since I checked in, but for reference, yea no problems with the DDR4 3000 sticks. Honestly once everything is up and running it's hard to notice a few percentage points here or there in performance. There are a lot of things to take into consideration, but ultimately I think it comes down to individual requirements for % price increase vs % performance increase.
Hey man, sorry I don't check on this account very often, but thanks for the kind words!
I guess it's been a little while from your message, hope you got a sweet build in the end.
You should post your build! If you do, be sure to send me a link :)
Great write up and nice pics. Thanks for sharing! +1
Tell me about it, I was checking all the vendor sites, signed up for all the notifications, setup ebay alerts, was even looking on reddit for a reasonable deal.
I would get alerts from Newegg and they were selling out by the time I added them to my shopping cart.
I lucked out when I jumped on a 'buy it now' listing on ebay. Amazingly it was just a guy dumping an extra card after upgrading and wasn't trying to be greedy, restored my faith in humanity.
Wells Fargo, $200 back after spending $1000 in the first 3 months:
Newegg had an American Express offer for $50 back that was advertised at checkout and I used that as well.
Np, thanks for checking it out!
Yea, I'm not sure if it was too much. Tempted to remove the block to see how it spread.
Changed the title too...
Sorry, I got started on the description before I finished the photos. I'm slowly uploading them now :)
