Quad Channel Memory, X79

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

So I've decided to use the new X79 platform for my next build and I'm planning on using the ASUS Rampage IV Formula along with an i7 3930K.
One thing that I've no clue about is the new "quad channel memory". Is it just a new marketing gimmick where dual channel memory will work too?

I was thinking about using 4x4GB Corsiar Dominator-GT 2133MHz CL9 ( 9-11-10-27 ), but I just want to double check with you guys. rolleyes.gif

Thanks a lot in advance.

I am no expert when it comes to ram, but 2x(2x4Gb) packs are the same as quad channel as long as they are identical in every way.
the benefit to buying a certified quad channel pack, is that those module are guaranteed to work together.
as to the benefit, its debatable. if you do some quick googleing you will see what i mean.

great mobo choice by the way thumb.gif

Just out of interest did you just mean the corsair dominator GT or dominator platniums(the new ones with light bar.).

You are probably right, looking at it from Corsair's perspective they say "Quad Channel".

And these are the one's I'll use: http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-product-family/dominator/dominator-gt-with-dhx-pro-connector-1-5v-16gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmt16gx3m4x2133c9.html

that was excatly the ones i was going to get until i got my hands on some of the corsair dominator platnium.
The color goes perfectly with the ROG red/black board.
good luck with the build mate.

Thanks dude, I don't think those RAM are sold in Denmark yet unfortunately, so I'll stick with the Dominator-GTs smile.gif

Too bad you're in Denmark. Newegg has them for much cheaper than Corsair store. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

There are similar stores in Denmark, the product just hasn't hit the Danish shelfs yet. I would never buy products straight from the manufacturer.
