Windows 7: New build: Z97 vs X99

The hell didn't stop there.
I had to buy 32 gb of G-Skill to find 16 gb that would work. They wouldn't warranty the ram that was only a few weeks old.

Needless to say I don't recommend buying G-Skill ram.
The good thing is when I got done the system works great.

One advantage to an X99 system is you probably wouldn't need to upgrade for quite some time. The downside is it will be seriously expensive. You could easily wind up spending as much, if not more, for the DDR4 RAM as you would on a Z97 system. Those little sticks must be made of platinum plated gold.

For just gaming, an X99 system would probably be overkill unless you want to run quad GPUs. At that point, be prepared to mortgage the homestead and sell your kidneys, liver, and first born.

My next ram will be Corsair. Yes it cost more but cost isn't everything. Considering I can only use have of the G-Skell I bought 16 gig of Corsair it would of cost less.

I've never had anything from Kingston fail on me, be it RAM, SD cards, or USB sticks (2.0 and 3.0). They also have a lifetime guarantee on most of their products.

There`s nothing wrong with what you have for gaming, except maybe 3 things.

1 You need a decent set of ram, I had 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz running at 1866 just fine on that board. Get yourself a good set of 1866, either a 4x4 or 2x8 kit of Corsair Vengeance or GSkill Trident X.
2 You need a 980, 970`s have known memory issues.
3 Where do you have Windows ? On the Kingston or the Crucial ssd ? The Kingston is too small.


The 3570K is absolutely fine.

2x8 VengeanceĀ® ā

4x4 VengeanceĀ® ā

TridentX - 16GB (8GBx2) 1.60v Dual Channel DDR3 Memory kit (F3-1866C8D-16GTX) - G.SKILL Memory

or a 4x4 16 GB 2400 MHz kit will work great too.

TridentX - F3-2400C10Q-16GTX - G.SKILL DDR3 Memory

Yea hopefully I used a sweet spot on the 2666mhz ?
I guess I can always dial it down to 2400mhz not sure how but I guess that's included in the fun part of tweaking
The testing stat's by I believe ASUS used Corsair so I figured it was a better choice to stay in that brand ?

CPU wise of course the stat's came from the i7 5960x @ 1k.us out of my budget but that I suppose is a later upgrade along with Oh yea Add"More"Ram
Probably only 2 more sticks though 2x4gb

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
