You might want to get a dual channel kit instead. The P55/H55/H57 platform, which includes your i5-750, doesn't have a triple channel memory architecture. Although, if you want 6GB, then that kit is fine. The i5 750 is the best bang for the buck processor, and many will agree with me. It's what's powering my system right now.

Good choice. Now go find yourself a graphics card, PSU, and case, before I critique your build further.

You cant use triple channel kit with a dual channel motherboard.


Yes you can. However, only two of the modules will only be running in dual-channel mode, and the rest of the memory (which is the last 2 GB module) will run in single channel mode.

The i5 don't support tri-channel. And get a RAM with a better CL, CL7 or CL8 is recomended.

You said you "can't" use the triple channel kit. But of course you can, so how is that useless? I am correcting what you said because it's misleading. A triple channel kit will work in a dual-channel motherboard, but not in its advertised triple-channel mode.

If you said it like saint19 did ("The i5 doesn't support tri-channel"), then it would have been correct.

IMO, don't have any sense spend money in a tri-channel kit, for run it at dual-channel mode. If you want 6GB, buy 2x2GB to run in dual-channel and add another 2x1GB for run it in dual-channel too.
