Can I Split a 32GB ram into two PC's with 16GB each?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I have GSkill Trident X 2400Mhz 32GB kit and wanted to know, if i can split it in two, so I want to use 16GB in my PC (which is more than enough for me) and give 16GB to my nephew?

would this cause any problems when overclocking or are they are proper matched kits i.e. no splitting?

both of us have Z77 Motherboards and intel 3770K

Thanks.

This is fine.

All kits do is guarantee that the memory sticks are all very similar, since they'd be from the same batch. Splitting them up is no problem, you'd basically have two perfectly good 16gb kits.

Thanks for the replies, that's what i thought but i came across a thread online which a Gskill customer support person relied back to, saying that the memories are matched and you should not split them into two i.e. if you want 16gb buy that kit and if you want 32gb buy that kit.

next step overclocking the bugger to run 2400Mhz

PS: i had these RMA''s because the orignal ones i bought from ebay one of the modules came apart, and Gskill replaced the whole kit for me direct from Taiwan in under 2 weeks. smile.gif

Thanks

Probably just trying to sell more RAM.

A stick of memory is a stick of memory.
Any channelization happens on the controller.

What they mean is if you want 32GB, it's better to buy a 32gb kit as opposed to two 16gb kits.
