    Ultrawide monitors difference

    Cat 8 cable?

    Cat 8 cable?

    EEERM that would be double not triple , and if we remain realistic difference between £8 and £9 is much smaller .

Only difference I have noticed is although overall speed is not faster ( obviously cant be ) it GETS to the max speed FASTER( when being measured .) . Again this...

    8pack TEAM GROUP XTREEM EDITION 4000mhz

    I have a similar issue . I have same ram kit ( x2) cannot boot with anything higher than 3866. if I wait till PC has been running for 30 mins , then RAM will boot at 4000 . Tried timings and voltages . It was worse on my gigabyte mobo . Asus one is better but still very strange
