So I know a fair amount about computers, enough to get me into trouble, well recently I've been looking at upgrading my ram, so I guess I have a couple of questions.
Current ram: OCZ gold series PC3 12800
So first questions: Channels, how do they work? like I understand the whole "if your mobo is a triple channel mobo, then you want triple channel ram", but could I also use hexi-channel kit? does it just have to be in 3's?
2. On my ram it says "8-8-8", I "think" that refers to latency, but not sure. so what is that all about.
3. My current ram runs at 1.65v, is it important to get ram that runs at the same voltage? or does it not really matter?
and last but not least....
4.When it says "DDR3 1600" my assumption is the DDR3 is for triple channel, but what does the "1600" mean?
Thanks for helping me out!, I would like to learn something along with upgrading my ram.
