Before anyone says anything, I know there are threads on this all the time, but I have a rather unique situation. I have an asus p6t and an i7 920, but the memory I am running is a 2x2gb dual channel corsair dominator gt set. I didn't realize the difference between dual and triple channel when I bought it, but now I do. Should I try and return the memory and get a 6gb set? Is there going to be a significant performance difference? (The price difference for this ram is pretty substantial)
Hmm..for an i7, yes I would RMA it because think of ram as a highway lane. Whats better having three highways lanes or two?...if you have three highway lanesyou will have much less traffic and everything will go faster. Thats how it works and an i7 on the 1366 works best with three memory modules vs two. The difference won't really kill you or anything but it will be noticable and you wouldn't be taking full advantage of a 280 dollar CPU and 200+ dollar motherboard.
