I had some spare parts laying around, so I decided to build this!
I've used a 2x2GB kit of that Sector 5 ram before in a budget build. Never seen it anywhere else, haha.
I love the 2400, too. That along with the 1050 Ti is a great combo.
I had never seen this ram before this build either! lol I guess no matter how long you do this, there are still new things to discover!
I saw it once before. Must have been some sort of limited edition, or they just didn't make many.
Can’t get enough of these Sandy Bridge builds. Great to see some older hardware up and kickin’! +1 :)
awesome budget setup. Did the 2400 come in a prebuilt with the motherboard? +1
No, the 2400 was in a dell oem, but the mobo came from a local guy who was selling a handful of these intel motherboards. I bought 3! lol
Dang i with i had graphics card for my computer.
Look on ebay! They are selling very cheap right now!
That's a great deal!
you can n into problems long term with two different types of ram it will still work but iv heard from a lot of people that that happens. nice for some spare parts
You can have some issues if the 2 different ram dims aren't the same speed or latency, but I haven't had any issues mixing brands of ram in the past. As long as they are the same speed, you should be fine.
oh maybe that what it was that sounds about right
That is a great idea! Now if only it were possible to overclock an i5 2400.......
Already have a x370 and ryzen 7 2700x with a gtx 1080ti and 32 gb gskill trident z rgb. My son is rocking a b350 with ryzen 3 1200 and an rx 580 8gb with 16gb gskill ram as well... Interesting idea though, I'll keep it in mind! :)
He currently has a b350 motherboard, interestingly enough! And for someone who keeps mentioning overclocking, it seems strange to me that you would have a pc that you couldn't overclock... I guess you could always upgrade! :)
