  • Memory: 16GB (2x8GB) CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB PRO DDR4-2666
  • Motherboard: b360m mortar (ms-7b23)
here it is for much higher than what i paid: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Gaming-i7-9700-GeForce/dp/B07Y16KZHM?th=1

i dont think im getting out what its capable of and im looking for suggestions for things i can do to help.
I bought this around 3 years ago and i want to upgrade but im not educated enough to ensure wise decisions. i assume motherboard>ram>gpu?
any suggestion is appreciated. even pointing me at something i should read up on. i havent even attempted to overclock anything

What are the underlying data that indicated to you that you're not getting proper performance out of your RAM?

Generally speaking, a RAM upgrade from competent RAM for the system -- Intel CPUs of this era are far less hungry for fast RAM than Ryzens -- will only result in minimal performance increases in most applications, with the exception of getting more RAM in situations in which you're running out of RAM.

thats interesting. i only say ram because its on the lower end for speed and i tend to sit around 70% when im doing basic editing and gaming with all the crap i leave open or running in the background. ill try to research into if its even worthwhile
