                      If you have a ventilator on it, you actually can't call it "active". The "active cooler" is a cooler that can cool-down your processor below the environment temperature.

                              Quick question, i have a ram stick that is 2400hz. Is there a possible way for me to put a 1666hz stick in there to go with it and NOT get trouble?

                                @Fastengel I had to Google it myself but had no idea there existed ddr4 1600 ram. I figured low 2000 was the slowest like 2133

                                You say of course but we are all assuming the guy knows the difference between ddr3 and ddr4

                                @Steve Smith both ddr4 ofcourse. you cant use ddr3 and ddr4 on the same motherboard

                                Uh no one asked the big question, is the 2400 ddr4 and the other ddr3?
