msi 970a g43 ram options

Hello all, looking to get some input on how I should set up the ram on my msi 970a g43 mobo. Being that it is dual channel and supports 32gb of ddr3 ram, would it be best to run two 16gb sticks in dual channel or just get four 8gb sticks?

  1. Unless you are video editing or a graphics designer 32gb is a total waste.
    Games rarely go above 4gb and windows support depends on the version you are running.
    Windows 7 Ultimate 4 GB x86 192 GB x64

    Windows 7 Enterprise 4 GBx86 192 GB x64

    Windows 7 Professional 4 GB x86 192 GB x64

    Windows 7 Home Premium 4 GBx86 16 GB x64

    Windows 7 Home Basic 4 GBx86 8 GBx64

    Windows 7 Starter 2 GB x86
    If you need this amount of memory then 4x8 would give better performance.
  2. I have windows 7 pro. I am currently running 8gb of ddr3 2x4 in dual channel. I do edit vids, and do some 3d modeling at times as well as game. For some reason I thought 32gb 2x16 in dual channel would perform better than 32gb 4x8. Forgot to mention, I will be oc'ing to 2133hz ram. They say less modules is better for this. Still go for 4x8? or do 2x16?

    Excuse me, i have a question! i already have 2x2gb kingston ram in my system using a fx-6300 and this motherboard, but im looking to buy new ram, until I have a total of 8gb of amount. There was a time that I tested my system with a single Ram Kingston Hyperx Fury 4gb Ddr3 1866mhz and my pc constantly crashed with blue screens. Which ram do you recommend me to buy?
