Max RAM for N68-VS3 FX Tags: Memory RAM Samsung Last response: June 20, 2012 4:58 AM in Memory Share tech_trgr June 20, 2012 3:45:19 AM I am having RAM doubts with this mobo. It says 8GB RAM for system max mem. Does it mean I can't install 8GB 1333 per slot or I can install 8GB per slot? My system is: Athlon ll X4 640 @ 3.0GHz Asrock N68-VS3 FX Antec H20 620 with Res mod Corsair VS 2x4GB 1333 Samsung 2x320GB Trendsonic 550W PSU Samsung Syncmaster T220 Custom acrylic case Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would tend to think that it's 4GB max per slot (makes the most sense, since it's Dual Channel). It looks like you have the max that you can use already, though (although you could use 8GB of 1600 RAM (2x4GB) instead of 1333 if you wanted, but there's really no reason to do that). tech_trgr June 20, 2012 4:31:40 AM Yeah, I've read somewhere that you can't really feel the difference between 1333 and 1600. I guess I have to get another mobo which can support more RAM. AE CS6 is such a RAM hog program.
