Can an intel i5 support 4 sticks of ram?

Hello, just a quick question, currently I am running an intel i5-750 with 2x2GB ram, and am looking to upgrade. My motherboard has 4 slots available for RAM. Does anyone know whether the i5-750 can support all 4 slots? I have heard rumors that they only support 2.
Thanks!

  1. Ofcourse it can :D
  2. That was my initial opinion, but I have been told that some processors cannot support more than 2. Anyways thank you for the help.
  3. I think you are confusing Dual Channel, Tri , or Quad Channel RAM.

    Your CPU supports dual channel ram. Even though you have 4 slots, it is still dual channel.

    If you had an i7 on a 1366 motherboard then you could support 3 channels and have 6 sticks of RAM.

    You can put 4 sticks of RAM in dual channel mode even with a Pentium 4. LOL :kaola:
  4. I think the real question you need to ask yourself is whether or not your OS can support more than the 4 gigs you already have. Unless you have a 64-bit OS you would be wasting your money.
  5. Thanks for the answers everyone, I am aware of the limitations of a 32-bit OS, I am running Windows 7 64.
  6. So, what does 4 sticks running in Dual channel mean? What's the difference if it had ran in Quad channel.
