Hey,
You may want to do some modifications before it's too late :
- it's better to take 2x16 instead of 1x32 for the ram
- take the golden warranty
- take the 1 year dead pixel guarantee ^^

Otherwise, it looks great, I hope you'll enjoy it ^^

Echoing Tron here;

DDR5 is dual channel per module so in theory, there's no requirement to split the memory into 2 sticks however, real-world benchmarking for quad channel RAM does show a small but consistent increase in the 0.1% and 1.0% FPS scores in many games which translates as a reduction in micro stuttering.

That said, If you are going to be using the machine predominantly for large scientific datasets, video editing or even running a server then I'd go with 1x32GB now and take the hammer to the piggybank later for another 32GB stick (it really depends on your use case)

Regarding the gold warranty/dead pixel guarantee, these are nice to haves so if your budget can stretch to it, by all means go for it.

Thanks for the help.
I usually always go for two sticks of RAM but in this case I will be getting the other matching 32gb stick in a month or two and figured the performance in games won't be too adversely affected by this!

I'm already stretching my budget so I couldn't go for the luxuries of extended warranty and dead pixel guarantee, so I'm rolling the dice on that one :/

Not seen many reviews of this system around or on the net. Any users here got similar specs and any concerns over temperatures and throttling etc?
