The SSD is C drive yes it's only for booting and stuff,so i delete/move everything in it to another drive right?2 flags:
1)Kingston A400 120GB SSD
That's one of those cheap, Dram-less SSDs, if I recall correctly. They lose a lot of speed when they are close to full, performing on par with, or worse than a HDD.
That's your C drive too, so it'll affect most of your programs. Clear some space, or get a bigger drive.
2)Single channel memory config
That USED to be fine to game on; not anymore. You can either:
-add an 'identical' stick. Not guaranteed to work, since it hasn't been tested beforehand; you'll be the one doing the 'testing'. All an 'identical' stick does is increase your odds of success; it may still fail.
-replace the single stick with a dual channel kit.
Your crashes are caused by either Windows or gpu drivers, or insufficient power supply - whatever it is.
If it ain't broke...Do you suggest i also change my case since this one seems a bit too small
A new 2x 8GB kit to replace the single is recommended.Should i get 2 8gb sticks differently or just stick one 8gb stick in my PC since this already has a 8gb stick?
No, you don't have the headroom for it.Do you suggest I overclock or is the stock fine?
If it ain't broke...
A new 2x 8GB kit to replace the single is recommended.
You COULD just add another 8GB, but that's playing a lottery; no one could tell you if it would work or not. YOU would be the one doing the testing and certification.
No, you don't have the headroom for it.
In your 2nd post, you already mention having temps over 80C. Overclocking increases power usage = more heat.
Over 85C isn't good for the gpu long term anyways.
Yes, if you don't mind the possible compatibility issues that may arise from mismatched sticks - again, you are the one doing the testing.Can I use 1x8 and 1x4 GB sticks? (my memory is DDR4 incase i didn't mention that)
