2 processors, 12 slots of memory, 3x1 GB. Best perfomance?

I have a mo with 12 slots ready for DDR3 RAM. (Processors = Xeon 5504, with triple channel direct access memory)

It's a server motherboard. I have 3 x 1 GB DDR3 RAM.

The motherboard has 12 slots , 6 per processor.

What is best?

a) Put the 3x1GB slots in triple channel (processor 1) and no one for processor 2.
b) Put 2 for one and 1 for the another.
c) Others???

Thanks friends

  1. Better to get 3x1GB more and put it for the 2nd one too...the CPUs would benefit from the RAM dedicated to them..
  2. ^or if you are on tight budget ( but how could it be when you got such fancy motherboard and processors ), then get just 1 more stick of 1GB RAM and put 2 for each CPU.
