16GB of RAM seems like overkill, but it's not that expensive, so no biggie. No SSD for you OS or anything though? I'd prefer speed over capacity, but whatever.
It'd be cool if you'd post some info on your cooling and case too, because that 125W (I think) TDP for the CPU must make it pretty hot.
Yah 16GB is definately overkill, but it was cheap and I was already buying 8 cores of processing power so I thought might as well go all the way, right?
As far as cooling I have a Hyper N520 CPU cooler, A fan that came attached to my tower, and a cheap fan that I found at a local store.
All this keeps my board at nice cool temperature of 27Â°C when just browsing the web, and 40Â°C Max while running Skyrim.
Did I mention it's whisper quiet? :)
