So I am planning a new build, but its going to be a while before i have the money for it. I figure I can buy some parts early such as ram and use it in my current build until I have the money for the entire thing. Im planning on getting Quad Channel memory, 4 x 8Gb. Only issue is my current Mobo only supports Dual Channel with a max capacity of 4GB per Dimm. Theoretically i think it will work fine, I would only get dual channel support and my max Ram would be 16 GB. Any one have experience with it?
I only assume because I know when i used win7 32 bit I had 8gb of ram in and it at least allowed me to use 3.7gb of it. I know its different since this is controlled by the mobo, but im optimistic :-p Just hoping someone could give me a for sure yes or no. If it helps, its an ASUS mobo
yeah actually. Im in graduate school for Architecture and a lot of the time the 16GB that the computers on campus have is inadequate. which is one of hte reasons I am doing this build. MY current computer was fine untill this year, but the software we are using has gotten rather intense
I mean i Know its everything :-p Ram Maxes out and it takes a while to change windows, CPU shows 100% usage when rendering 3d models and everything is extremely laggy, and when I go to rotate a 3D Revit file, it takes a few minutes to register. This only happens when im doing a lot of other crap at once, but im sure its a combination of everything, not an issue isolated to RAM, this is just one topic i was curious with for a short term fix
