I would go with faster memory

Loose the s chip, your not going to save any power.
Faster memory in terms of what? like below? Do you mean ddr4?

Outputting optical you loose DTS-MA and LPCM
Thanks I will connect both sources. But in general I am confused with what solution I go with? Shall I get sound card since DAC on 3805 is 10 years old or just use mobo analog output? Also optical\toslink can only do 5.1 is this correct? I would like to stick with decent 7.1 output. Do I have option of True HD sound?
