    My GPU should hopefully arrive today and will be about the size of yours, needs to be as my build is an ITX one (Mostly finished, will post a thread soon.)

    What are you going to use the RAM Disk for ?
    Basically for a super fast transcode folder and saves wear on SSDs. I'm sure it is overkill but I'm just going for the fastest performance I can afford right now and then will hope that I can future proof this system for a while with perhaps only a GPU swap / drive swap as potential future "needs".

      I imagined that was what you were doing. That is fair enough, probably a little overkill but hey ...we chase performance right ! I have put my transcode folder on my standard SSD, should still suffice nicely for transcode temp files.

          Overkill.. has such a nice ring to it.. love that word! After all, this isn't BarelyAdequateHardware.net


          I figured I would put the slim drive space to some good use so I picked up this LG BU40N and flashed the modified firmware to allow it to read my UHDs. I needed the sata slim to regular sata adapter also. https://www.lg.com/us/burners-drives...ray-dvd-writer

              Nice choice on the Blu-ray drive. I have one too, though an external one. I must admit I barely use it as I keep all my files digital as opposed to on disk, but its nice to have the option.

              Yeah working in the BIOS issue with Asrock. They have released a new one which I will test, but only after giving them my diagnosis results from using th current BIOS so they have more to go on if this new BIOS is still poo lol.

              Looks like your build is coming together nicely !
