i5 2500K ram.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So i just bought the i5 2500k for my new setup, and bought my ram at the same time. it was triple channel 6gb kit 1600mhz and noticed on the side of the box that 2500k's can only handle dual channel kits..

if i take one of the 2gb sticks away would that make it dual...?

Yep, DDR3 is DDR3 whether it's in triple or dual channel.
What you should also check is the voltage, IIRC it's recommended your RAM is 1.5v or less for a 1155 setup.

Nah SB can handle 1.65V just fine, don't worry. Mine is running 2133 @ 1.65V for a long time now without any problems.

If you could exchange them then you should, there's no reason to waste 2GB stick sitting there for nothing . 2x4GB will work great for SB.
