That's a great update, 24gb RAM is enormous!! Good luck!!

His new one has 32gb and a cool ring fan  in the cpu  that looks like a car  engine bolted to it

So pc up and running and wow what a power horse it is, so I ran Startools gpu accelerated version first Astro processing software to fully utilise gpu processing I can’t believe how quick this pc  processes data , before on my laptop each module in Startools would take a while now it’s down to seconds and the denoise module would take ages now completing I would say under twenty seconds .
