    Please can someone help me check compatibility of my parts


    First time builder here , have been researching for quite a long time and want to make sure my part list is good and compatible with each other - PCPartPicker says it is but ive heard bad things where some people have bought 32GB of RAM and only 20/24 is usable

    CPU : Intel 5930k

    Cooler : NZXT Kraken X61 AIO
    Motherboard : ASUS X99-DELUXE/USB 3.1
    RAM : Kingston Savage 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory @ CL12
    GPU : Gigabyte G1 Gaming 980Ti 6GB
    Case : Corsair 750D Airflow Edition
    PSU : EVGA 1000W P2

    *** I already have storage drives and an SSD that i used in my old Acer pre-built tower***

    Any help / insight is greatly appreciated

    Here is the support page for your mobo
    https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards...Desk_Download/
    Look under Memory/Devicesupport for the memory QVL list.
    In the list under ddr-4 2400 there is only 1 Kingston memory module named. Check it, look at the chipnumber.
    But remember such a list is a snapshot of that time, there could be other compatible modules been avaliable on the market later and not added.
    There is also Deviceslist (you can check your (older) HDD and SSD compatibility)

    Under driver check if you need a certain BIOS version, depending on your hardware.

    You did not tell for what you gonna use this PC. Is it only gaming?
    Then i would say that 32 gb of ram is overkill, 16 gb is more than enough.

    Unless you are doing some major.. major... I mean major. Photoshopping.. that's too much ram..

    and to spend that much money on that.. well, if you got the money and don't care about it being totally changed in 1 year then that's fine.... (have you seen how fast new things are on the way now with computers?)

    Also the next best research you can do is typing in the model name of the ram and then also your motherboard.. so type in google like:

    "ASUS X99-DELUXE kingston savage"

    or

    "asus x99 deluxe Ram kingston problem"

    etc..

    and try to look for forums and boards where people are talking about problems.

    Example:

    "kingston ram doesn't boot up with Asus x99" and stuff like that..




    - your trying to find problems with that ram and your motherboard..
