    Also you can search for undervolting the 1050ti with MSI afterburner and that will help control package power usage as well.

    Just regular Crucial single 16gb 2400mhz ram, cause I already own the same ram.

    Ah ok. Its 2666mhz for the 9570 and its very fussy with Ram so I hope it works for you. I eventually got a 16gb to work - Crucial CT16G4SFD8266 16GB CL19 Dual Rank. The Ballistix CL16 range don't work (unless Dell bring out a BIOS update newer than 1.2.2), even though Crucial Website says its compatible. It ain't!

    If you have any problems - try putting the Dell Ram in slot B and the aftermarket in slot A and that works in some cases, but your Ram will run at the lower clock speed of the 2 (from my experience - ymmv).

    My thermal pad didn't arrive yesterday thanks to Amazon, and it will arrive tomorrow. So I am planning to do ssd, ram, thermal pad and compound work tomorrow :)

    Amazon plays some tricky games like holding stock in a warehouse push you to "upgrade" to faster options. It won't get better. . .

    It's funny because I ordered the thermal pad and my mousepad, but only the pad arrived with no thermal pad.

    I upgraded to 'Prime' - no postage costs. Now everything takes longer to get here.

    I also notice the Prime elgible products are a bit more pricey.

    I find the best prices for a good is getting tougher to find at Amazon. And other retailers often more competitive than amazon.

    I think amazon does a lot of things right but the prices, quality reviews and transparency are all going in the wrong direction. . .

    I just tested the ram, and unfortunately, it didn't work and planning to refund the ram as well.
