I'm trying to find some Intel Gigabyte Motherboards that support 64GB (or higher) of RAM. So far I'm not having much luck. The motherboard is going to be used for a virtual machine manager so will need to be of a decent build quality but I would like to build the PC as a desktop as opposed to a Server (I know that is kind of counter productive in terms of cost/quality).
All I have found so far is the GA-X79-UD5 (x79).
More about :gigabyte intel motherboards support 64gb ram
It's only x79 that supports quad channel memory. At 2 dimms per channel and 8gb per dim that's 64gb
I have marked as best answer however based on that I have a follow-on if I may?
I have looked at the x79 motherboards and picked the Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4, one of the 2 (3 if you include the revised model) that allow fr 64 bit quad channel memory.
After looking at the spec sheet for verified working RAM Im not sure if I understand. The 8GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9H/8G Ram is listed as suitable for DIMM slots 1-4 but not 5-8. Is this due to the memory not being quad channel RAM? If so, to get the full 64 GB RAM I would need to pick a stick/kit that is verified across all 8 dimms?
