2 sticks on triple channel Tags: Memory Triple Channel Last response: November 25, 2010 3:27 AM in Memory Share daviiiiiid November 25, 2010 2:33:26 AM Hey all. Posting for the first time here. I'll be building my first PC and am now encountering a problem. The mobo im getting is the Gigabyte X85A-UD3R I first thought I could get this: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline Stiletto 8GB 2X4GB PC3-10666 DDR3-1333 9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit But then ... the mobo being triple channel.. thought of this: OCZ OCZ3G1333LV6GK Gold 6GB 3X2GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-20 240PIN DIMM Triple Channel Memory Kit The 3x2GB kit is 15$ more expensive and 2GB less. I dont know if its really worth it. I'm thinking of a low budget here. Thank you!
