Upgrading a Tri Channel

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have the i7 930 which is running a tri channel system.
I want to upgrade my RAM since I gonna be doing lots of large matrices analyses and emulations.
There are only few 3x8GB kits, two to be precised.

Questions:
Should I buy a 4x8GB and not use the 4th one??
or Should I buy a 2x8GB and buy a extra 8GB??

or Should I go for 6x4GB??
Doesnt this provide a heavier load to the ICH??

Also, I read that Win7 64bits Home Premium only support 16GB.
Is this true??

how many GB do you have currently and what kind of program are you going to be using for this?

3x2GB so a total of 6GB.
I gonna be using MatLab.
The recommended is 2 GB.
But I ran out once when I was running a 10^6 by 10^6 matrix, plus or minus one in the exponent.
Maybe because I was multi tasking too much.

Also atm I am learning java and need to design an app for class.
So I gonna be using emulator (Android Virtual Devices).
Dont know what is the requirement on this

I would personally look for speed over size in this instance. you could get 3 single sticks of the samsung 30NM dimms and OC them to around 2000MHz with 12GB.
