    [SOLVED] Will this rig be able to run high quality graphics VR?

    Hi guys, first up I'm sorry for what I assume is a very commonly asked question. I wouldn't worry but the problem with my rig is that it's being bottlenecked somewhat by the CPU and the motherboard (two oldest parts that I plan to update soon). Here are my specs and SteamVR Performance Test...

    Question Will the Noctua U-12S SE-AM4 have enough RAM clearance for Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro?

    What it says on the tin. As far as I can see on basic searching on Google even though the Corsair Vengeance Pro (to be specific the 16GB [2X8GB] DDR4 3000MHZ C15 black one) has a higher height than other RAM sticks, Noctua's U12S SE-AM4's size should still have enough clearance as long as I use...
