Hi,
I am buying the EVGA X58 Tri-SLI Classified mother board. The MB Specs says that the memory for a 64-Bit Operating system can be taken up to 24GB. Now where can I find a single chip 4.0GB DDR3 Tri-Channel Memory at 1600 or MHz since the MB has 6-Slots for Memory. I can't find it anywhere any help with some links would really help as I will be upgrading the memory slowly to 24GB in the near future. Thank you.

I think you are confusing the different technologies here.

Triple channel is when you use 3 sticks of RAM, not one single stick, so for 24 GB your would need 2 kits of 3 x 4 GB memory, a quick search on newegg came up with this.

Actually I know that I would need three sticks, but what I was looking foir right now was a single 4.0GB Memory and later put two more making three for Triplr channel. Thats where I am runing into a problem I can't find 4.0GB one stick at 1866Mhz. Thankx for help though.

Well, in that case then yes, I could not find any rated at that speed either doing a quick search, and at 1600 which is in your original post, the only one I could come up with was G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL - Retail .

There were a few sticks rated at 1333, but take it they are of no interest with you now talking about 1866.
