I'm considering upgrading to 48gb of memory. I currently use 24gb (6x4gb dimms) and know that i can still resell these for close to what i paid, so in conjunction with some good holiday sales on 8gb dimms, i thought i might come close to break even.
What i'd like to know is: with my mobo (asus p6t delux v2) what will happen if i plug in 6, 8gb memory sticks? Will it utilize all 48gb? Does the mobo have a a cap of 24gb and it will only utilize up to that point? Will it not work at all and i can only use 3, 8gb sticks for the same 24gb total i have now? if the only benefit is using 3 sticks instead of 6 to get to 24gb, i'm not going through the hassle, but if i can increase my total system memory it'll be worthwhile. thanks guys!
