Great deal on old RAM for my intel 2500K build
« on: October 08, 2020, 05:40:08 pm »
Snapped up a RAM upgrade at a decent price to double my system from 8 to 16GB

I was researching swapping out my i5-2500K (Sandybridge) for a i5-10600K (Comet Lake) but the more I looked into it the more I'm realizing that my current CPU is far from end of life. I expect I can get a few more years out of this thing as my production desktop. :)
