Any Sandy Bridge motherboard with more than 6 RAM slots?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So far it seems that all motherboards come only with 4 RAM slots. Is this a limit of Sandy Bridge memory controller? For my purpose, I need more than 16GB of memory (I do academic research, and right now I have a gigantic dataset to work with). Browsing newegg, it seems that 6 x 4GB memory set are not that expensive (less than $300). Is there any Sandy Bridge that comes with more than 4 memory slots?

Nope sorry, it's the limitation of the chipset. Wait til the end of this year... they'll have X79 with quad-channel RAM... (but i don't know if they'll have 8 RAM slots... anyone want to correct me?)

Else, gotta go back to X58 sorry

Pretty sure not. You would need to go 1366.

LGA 2011 / AM3+ will also only have 4 slots.

Go for x58 / 1366.
