Dear all, I recently upgraded my PC with existing SSD to:

- ASUS STRIX Z370-H
- HyperX Fury (2x, 8GB, DDR4-2133)
- RTX 2080 TI
- Intel 8700K

I got huge FPS drops in many games like Far Cry 5 and I upgraded again to:

- ASUS ROG Strix Z390-H Gaming (LGA 1151, Intel Z390, ATX)
- Corsair Vengeance LPX (2x, 8GB, DDR4-3000, DIMM 288)

This helped a lot. FPS drops are gone now, but not as stable as expected.

But my question is (as I am able to return the hardware for free) if it helps getting more and stable FPS even with a new RAM, i.e. DDR4-3866 RAM?

Kindly appreciate your help.

Thanks
 
When you upgraded all those parts, did you do a clean install of Windows?

If not, then drivers for the previous motherboard, etc., can cause some issues - Windows will install the new drivers, but there's a lot of clutter there from the previous install.

I wouldn't be worried about getting rams that are higher spec'd. You could try overclocking the rams to DDR4-3200MHz but that's all I will suggest. You're good as is.

What is the make and model of your PSU? Are you on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard?
