Sandy Bridge Motherboard with more than 4 Mem Slots? Tags: Motherboards Sandy Bridge Last response: June 16, 2011 6:30 PM in Motherboards Share dovedescent7 June 16, 2011 4:49:41 PM Hey all, i built an x58 desktop and had to rma both mobo and cpu. theyre on there way back to me and got to thinking about maybe changing everything up and going sandy bridge since the rma's are new in box and will be easily sellable. I searched for a 1155 mobo with more than four memory slots and didnt really come up with much,is it too soon? Being a newbie to Diy,i really dont know alot about mobo's and stuff. Is there an 1155 config that has more than four? Will there be?

I know 16 is a lot,im just thinking long term...Because the processor i want is alot of $$ and would like to be able to upgrade a mobo at a later point if it only supports dual now... I guess from what i am hearing, sandy bridge is two channel only? or,MOTHERBOARDS that are for sandy bridge only support dual channel? Pardon my newbieness and naivety m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

Besides most vendors probably don't want to cannibalize sales of the X58 platform or its upcoming replacement. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
