I am looking into getting some newer RAM than my 12GB kit I have now for my Asus Rampage III build. Can I get three (2x 4GB each) dual channel kits and run them in triple channel? Or do I have to get six 4GB individual sticks? Or can this even be done without getting a triple channel kit?

Looking at the Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB kit

So my question is really can I get three of these kits and use them stably on my x58 motherboard in triple channel config?

As long as they are all the same make and model, they wll work in triple channel just fine.

OMG thank you for giving me the answer I have been looking for! Everyone I have asked the question they either don't know if I can do it or they tell me you can't!

Thanks!

One last question to close this subject. How much HDD space does Windows 7 Pro 64 bit use so I know how much RAM to get for a Ramdisc?

The typical install size is around 20GB (HDD), actually less but Windows requires you to have that much space.

I run 32GB of RAM in my rig. You could go with 64GB and set up a blazing fast 32GB Ramdisk, but it will be fairly expensive. Make sure the memory your choose is on the Asus QVL if you go down that path.
