    Mixing ddr4 ram..??

    Oh, well that's even better. 26 years online and I never even tried a mixed setup. Ya think ya know, but ya have doubts, know what I mean. It's weird that it never came up, but there it is... Thanks.

    So you're saying that they wouldn't simply run at the lower speed...? That sucks. Thanks.

    Yea it would be my son that has the slower ram. I swapped out my rips for 32gb of FlareX. I'm thinking that two sets of ripsaws should at least work together even if they are different speeds.

    Well, the card came, took a while, but it's installed and so far mostly so good. From what I understand he had to set the fans to "manual" as automatic equaled fans that did not spin. Apparently, manual works just fine... Thanks again guys...

    I ran the fx-8350 for years and it was an excellent chip, nothing wrong with it all. That Intel had one that was better does not in any way diminish the goodness of the 8350...

    The 2060 is already several hundred more expensive here in Canada. He could surely afford the more expensive one, but like everyone else he is laid off.... So I'ma guessing 2070 would be even more extravagant...
