    I'll have a look for some 2133 RAM then, cheers
    Noctua is great.

    Changing the PSU won't increase performance, but it will mean that you have the power for new upgrades. Seasonic SS-850 or Corsair RM-850 is what I recommend.

    Indeed, the PSU is the weak link right now… and it's true, it won't increase the performance… - however, if you want a reliable system, then you need a good, reliable PSU… a bad PSU can take out other components too, that's why high end builders starts with a very high end PSU…

    However, if you have a proper surge protector and/or a good UPS, then you can survive pretty long with a Bronze certified PSU too…

    My point when I said that I would not change anything at this moment was that there is no real option to speed up that system significantly, it's pretty much close to it's limits… If you want significant upgrade, then you need to change platform - and it's better to start saving now for that then to invest in this system… That is the real future-proofing!

    I guarantee you, a 2133MHz clocked kit will make a very big difference.

    In benchmarks yes, it will make a difference - but in everyday tasks you won't feel anything...
    I do not remember the OP to mention benchmarking, so I just suggested a 1600MHz kit...

    Actually it will make a difference in browsing. And in gaming. And in computing.

    OK, Antronman, I will leave it to you... Based on my experience, I could not feel a difference - but then my experience is limited...

    With browsing it makes a noticeable difference, but even then a 1600 kit will still be very fast. A 2133 or 2400 will just be faster. Gaming however, it will make a big performance difference. Which means the same applies to computing.
