Alright so I got a 6GB triple channel kit from corsair. I was really dumb and didn't pay attention to the fact that Core i5 doesn't support triple channel. I know I can just put 2 of the sticks into my motherboard and get Dual Channel, since putting all 3 would give me single channel. So I have 2 options I see, buy 1 more stick and have 2 dual channel's, or sell the third off.
Here's my 2 questions.
1) Where the HELL do you buy a single stick of memory anymore?
2) And, even though my first question sort of answers this, would I be able to sell a single stick of the memory fairly easily?
That is a good point. Would people be interested in a mismatched set though? Yeah I know the memory would be the same but I thought the companies tested the chips together to ensure they worked well and sold them as kits.
If you took one stick out of the triple channel kit and sold the remaining two, that means they're still a kit. It would just be a dual-channel kit. They're still two modules that came packaged together, right?
Look this is getting too complicated, lets just relax a minute.
Send the extra chip to me, this will relieve you of all the unnecessary stress that is occurring. Periodically I'll post to this site and tell you how the chips doing, Ok.
