    Sorry to have to ask these but I see slightly varying opinions on #1. 1. With a ddr4 2133mhz stock ram, would I see any improvement in performance with say 2400, 3000, Ect? Is this determined by the motherboard? what about when overclocking, even if the max the computer can handle is 2133mhz...

    Speaker question? Not sure what's going on or how to call it

    So I picked a good-looking set of speakers up at a thrift shop for 5 bucks (Aiwa SX-LM99). Can't find much on them on the internet but they appear to be working fine. I tested them at a friend's place who had a proper speaker pre-amp and stuff. Connecting them to my own setup, however, posed...
