RVE/U3.1 w/3 x EVGA Kingpin - CPU and Mem Guidance Please

Level 9
Hey guys, I'm back for a little help.

Purpose of build is to extreme oc 3gpu's for Stereo 3d Surround Gaming, so stability for gpu's is priority 1

Picking the 5930K over 5820K due to 40 vs 28 pci 3.0 lanes

I will want to OC my cpu, but with whatever strain I put on with the gpu's/board, is the 5930k vs 5960x any better choice (except for $), priority 2?

Then in 3rd place of priority of stability, is the memory. I don't know jack on memory, any recommended speeds? 2 X 8gb should be sufficient, right?

M.2 - I'll study up later
Already have a overkill Corsair ax1500i

Any other words of wisdom Graciously accepted.
Sincerely,
I Love ROG 🙂

Menthol can smell a Samsung IC from twenty paces...but yeah you and I can look up version numbers and part lists....or use RAMMON etc....or wait for someone to peak under the heatsink....not wise to do this last yourself unless you know what you are doing...

Hey Arne,

Went ahead and installed RAMMON. Dram Manufacture says "Samsung". My kit was built on January 2016.

Not sure...you'd have to look through threads on this and check serial number on sticks/date you bought the kit/ date of manufacture

There are lots of Samsung dies....c,d,e,....:eek:
