Is this build compatible? Am I missing anything?

Im going to be running games and virtual machines on this pc. Do all the parts work together or is there anything I am missing? Also intel optane would that be of any benifit to this system?

    Looks fine, but instead of getting 4x8GB kit change that to 2x16GB.


    The MB and CPU will only do dual channel.

    Jesus that was lucky I came here otherwise I would have ordered that xd

    Is there any reason to get a diffrent cpu and mobo just to use quad channel?

    I wouldn't at this time.

    Wait awhile to see how the new platforms do, maybe a year or two.

    Would that ram work

  5. I would recommend taking a (2x8) 16GB kit. 16GB RAM can handle anything, 32GB is more than enough.

    Thanks. 16 gb is not enough for what I plan on doing im going to get 32 gb ram then test it if I need more Ill just get the second 32gb ram kit by using your suggestion but with a 2x 16.

    It will work fine, but I doubt you will need 32GB of ram, same some money and get faster ram, DDR4 3000 or 3200.

    Yes I also think 16GB can do anything, but however it is ultimately his choice, perhaps he wants to do something special.




    I suppose he is. :)

    I always found 16 GB to be enough.

    Always thought if I needed more I can always add more later, another 16 GB since I am running 2x8GB now.

    Been doing that for YEARS and never needed more so when I did my new build I got 16 GB as usual.

    The motherboard is limited to 2400 and the cpu. I plan on using virtual machines which take up like 1-3gb ram each i plan on running like 5 minimum of them whilst playing gta ect in the front with browsers open and 3-4 other applications open and 2-3 other games open

    It will do a lot more than 2400, with the Z270 chipsets you can enable the XMP profile for the memory and it will run full speed.

    Yes i mean only the cpu the 7700k is limited to 2400 according to intels specs. Also I plan on running nox (android emulator) at the same time as all the other stuff
