  1. You can do it, you will need 6*4GB DDR3 modules however. WTH DO YOU NEED 24GB!?!?!?
  2. ^^ -super high end animation/video/photo work?

    and OMG that is a serious chunk of change. wish i had that kind of money.
  3. ^ You wouldn't be using a "gaming" class board if doing that kind of'd be using a 2P at least then.
  4. Simple answer, NO - I have the exact dominator DDR3 RAM chips - 6x2 = 12 GB. These chips cannot be converted from 2 GB to 3 GB each.
    Please evaluate the cost of the 3GB RAM chips versus the present 2 GB RAM chips that you have. The switch may not be cost effective.
  5. +1 to shadow703793, you can do it, but need buy 6x4GB kit like this, but I think that you can build another rig with the same price.

    Or buy two kits like this, but again, U can build another rig with the price of the two kits.

    So, IMO you don't need 24GB at least that you don't know in that spend your money
  6. ^Exactly! This is why it is usually cost effective to go with a server board which have 12 DIMMs (6 DIMMs per CPU) like this: if you need an insane amount of RAM.
  7. ^+1 or this: that have 32DIMMs (8 DIMMs per CPU) and support four quad-core processors.
  8. You just need to download more ram, that's all:

  9. tried downloading ram doesn't work :p

    Me too, somebody can help me? :cry: :lol:
  11. ^ Me three. I can't seem to get it working..... :lol:
  12. That's where they get you, they let you download free RAM but want three hundred bucks for drivers...
  13. you guys need to change your d/loader, i just d/loaded the free ram and it cleared up my anal leakage on the spot

    noobs, boy i tell ya
  14. Does this really work? And how would I know if it did?
  15. ^ Are you serious!?!?!?????
  16. lol, not anymore. At first I thought is was some sort of virtual thing. Then I realized that I had an idiotic thought. I then went outside and took my daily ride on the short-bus. I'm not quite to noobville yet. Pardon the interruption.
