Hi, what is the appropriate ram configuration for SB i7-2600k ?

is it triple channel? dual channel? what speed and much should I get?

I do Graphic design, tablet painting, and gaming. I have ADHD so I LOVE multitasking very much.

Also planning to OC it.

Will buy it next week.



Thank you

You want dual-channel memory. I would look at getting a 8GB (2X4GB) set a DDR3 1600 Cas7 memory. G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH

Note: With all memory choices, it is always recommended to review the MOBO manufacturer website to verify the memory is listed on the Memory QVL or check the RAM manufacturer website for certification for your motherboard.

Edit: Fixed broken link :)

You will see benefit beyond DDR3 1333 but where that comes into play is "real world" application. Meaning, will you see a system difference.. I say yes to point in high amount of multi-tasking, multi-thread applications. In standard use... Not really.
