Solved 12Gb pack vs 2 x 6Gb packs Tags: Memory RAM Last response: January 28, 2010 12:16 AM in Memory Share bejabbers August 30, 2009 2:31:35 PM I know this may be a silly question, but would there be any difference at all installing a 12 Gb RAM pack (6x2Gb) versus installing 2 x 6Gb packs (3x2Gb)? I assume it would be fine, but I'd like to make sure before I buy.

Might want to consider making sure you actually need 12 gigs though. Would be overkill for 95% of people. | Report abuse bejabbers August 30, 2009 4:16:52 PM Oh I don't NEED the 12 Gigs.. I do want it to be overkill. I'm building a rig that won't require much in the way of upgrading for the next 5 years. Thank you though, I wasn't sure if there was something special with the 12Gb packs that allow the sticks to talk better than if you had 2 6Gb packs. | Report abuse mindless728 Memory Expert August 30, 2009 4:18:50 PM i don't think they are going to make 6gb sticks, usually they stick to powers of 2, though if you found one, link please the only large pack for DDR3 i have found is 3x8GB (it was server memory) | Report abuse bejabbers August 30, 2009 5:00:35 PM not 6Gb sticks, 6Gb packs (usually 3x2Gb sticks) | Report abuse bejabbers January 28, 2010 12:16:41 AM Best answer selected by bejabbers. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Memory>12Gb pack vs 2 x 6Gb packs> Related ressources: Forum[DDR3] 6GB @1600MHz x 12GB @1333MHZ Forum$1000-$1500 multi-use system. i7/930 and 12GB RAM.
