    What RAM is that replacing Drew?
    My Corsair Dominator Platinum 3333MHz kit (non-b-die). It's going in the backup system. And the RAM in the backup system is going in another rig I'm putting together (i7-6700K on a Gigabyte GA-Z170X Gaming GT). The only thing missing for the build was the RAM. I had some DDR3, but it's not supported on the Z170 boards.

    I might turn that system into a NAS server. It's over kill, but I need to find something to do with it. The funny thing is none of my kids want it, because they'd rather have laptops. And my grandkids are too young to have a system like that, so....

    Takes really well lit shot, thinks it's bad lol.
    Well, if you looked at some of my other PC shots, this is below standards. Check my first system in my system spec and click view my PC album. Note the reds.

    Here I kind of rushed the shot here since I was tired and just wanted to be done with it. And the Radeon sign is supposed to be red, not yellows…

    Anyway I just wanted to show what the RAM modules look like lit up so

    Image is fine, I've seen a lot worse, in official hardware sales materials

    LED lighting is always difficult, what we see is not what the camera records due to the flicker rate

    Only thing I would do different is use a backdrop, If you do a lot of this type of imagery a couple of hooks and a heavy single colour blanket will give a "clean" background.

    A colour for the Blanket as close as possible to a 18% grey card will make the subject "Pop", (and be used to fix colour Temperature). It's normal to use White or black but as cases are often white or black these days that would mean having a few blankets or a white sheet and colour flash which is overkill for what you are looking for

    In a former life I was involved in lighting and shooting Industrial control equipment, for customer boardroom use, When the customer was spending Millions on new equipment they liked to have a few "Pics" for the MD and the boardroom to impress clients. Just think of a PC case Ten foot tall and twenty foot or more long. It was all done with flash and a medium format Hasselblad,

    Agree with the background but that's my default PC photos areas so... And yeah, the LED colors are hard to capture, but it's not like I hadn't done it before...

    I just need to use my tripod and properly set exposure. I'm also using aperture priority because I'm trying to keep everything in the case sharp. I need to use shutter instead. The camera actually does a good job in auto as both images above demonstrates. The first image was aided with bounce flash thus the frozen fan. The second image was auto, no flash, and a 50 f1.4 lens. No tripod either

    Anyway, It's a me thing. I'm always trying to improve my craft :)

    How much air do those fans push Drew? Must be quite a bit.
