Makes perfect sense .. Always a better feeling to have that you still have a couple of vacant slots for the future ..

But, it still leaves my question open...

I would still like feedback on what's the better option for SB i5-2500K
4X2GB - 8GB Kit OR
2X4GB - 8GB Kit

Which of the above 2 gives a better overclock / performance, etc
Another reason to go with 2 sticks instead of 4 is because most air coolers block the first memory slot (the very first slot, not slot #2). With 1155, a dual channel kit is supposed to go in slots 2 and 4 which means that you can block that first slot all you want.

Yup, realised that the hard way on my ASUS P8P67 board. So, now, my 4GB kit is on slors 2 & 4.
