So, I had this master plan to buy 3 sets of 3 x 4 gb DDR3 12GB (3x4GB) 1600MHz Viper II Sector 7 Series Patriot PV7312G1600ELK from Fry's since they were having a sick rebate deal: 34.99 per set of 3. Anyway, I had to have two other people order the second and third sets, as you only get one rebate per address on the invoice and by the time the the third person went to order, they were unavailable.

Now I'm stuck with 24gb of ram, which was actually my target number (video encoding and genetic algorithm testing / analysis, not gaming). However, Im not stuck with what I assume will revert to dual channel ram in a quad channel mobo?

24gb for 70,00 after the rebates is a great deal, but how much am I going ot sacrifice performance?

Thanks!
