If you’ve made the jump to the i7-7700k CPU for your new build, you’re probably wondering how to keep your CPU running cool without breaking the bank (especially since K-series processors don’t include a standard Intel heatsink cooler). We explore this question by putting our popular H100i v2 to the test to see how well it will fare when paired up with an Intel i7-7700K processor.
Performance DRAM such as our Vengeance and Platinum series can be found at rated speeds of up to 4333MHz. However, you might notice that when you first install your RAM and boot to your system’s BIOS, the RAM is running at its standard speed (2133MHz/2400MHz in the case of DDR4 memory). Why does memory initially run at this slower speed?
