not really, I run all 4 slots maxed out with 16gb foe braging rights and because it looks sexy, but none the less I dont see any real world advantage, win 7 on a good day only uses 3gb, If anything all it does is make it harder to get higher overclocks
Yeah I have a cheap board with a 1090T and was having one hell of a time getting a stable system let alone over clocking it! I ended up taking out 1 stick of ram and leaving 1x4gb stick in to see what would happen. I was getting hyper transfer sync flood errors all over the place no matter what I did. Took one stick out and I have been stable all the way up to 3.8 so far
--To OP: why are you using AOD to overclock? I used that application for about a day and after that was uninstalling it. I can run the stability test in that application for days on an unstable system. I had it running for 12 hours, turned it off and turned on prime95 and after 3 minutes crashed with that. AOD is decent for benchmarking and looking at temps I guess but I have many other apps for that. AOD is kind of useless if you ask me...
