Need to increase my RAM - what is the best way to do so?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In my sig rig which is the workstation I need to up the amount of ram mainly because Premier CS6 keeps gobbling ram up. I am 12 gigs now but it seems even though i upped the ram premiere keeps taking ram. So i though i could go up to 24 gigs. Right now i have 2 gig modules in each slot. What is the best way to up the ram? Shold i just get a couple of 4 gig modules or should the sticks all be the same size? I use KVR 1333 ram. Or is there some cheap 1600 ram that would work? Oh and the KVR are all UDIMMs

And it will take all of that as well, it's designed to use up all the resources it can get it's hands on, you'd be best with some 4x8gb strips for a total of 32gb if your motherboard can take it.

But whatever you throw at it, it will use it.

Not really, depends on the work. It won't just gobble RAM for no reason.

What sort of work do you do on the machine?

Edit: I read Premier CS6 as the Suite, my mistake! In which case I'd go for at least 32GB for future proofing.

You're right, I should have been more specific,

If your machine has 12gb of memory and then you bump it to 24gb, if the work you're doing needs it it will take all that as well. And that application uses a LOAD of memory so yes, it will more than likely take whatever you have to throw at it.

I do video editing with premier obviously. I edit 480 and 720 video only and upload to youtube. I use Photoshop cs5. Also have open a video capture program and visual studio too, oh and an mp4 converter. Browser also has some 10 tabs open at any one time. My CPU usage never spikes about 25% or so.
