Sabertooth Z77 LGA 1155 (ram support?)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone quick Noob question smile.gif

I got the sabertooth Z77 Lga 1155 running a 2700k

On the Ram it says supports up to 32 gigs, Duel channel ram, does that mean it supports Quad Channel Kit as well, cuz 32 only comes in Quad kits i want this ram its 1866 the MOBO supports 1866 it says.

Or is it possible to go even higher Speeds, i do think this mobo should offer OC ability to go over 2000

THANK YOU.

It should work just fine, It just obviously will run in dual channel mode, I know you already know this, Just felt it needed said tongue.gif

This is were im confused whats the DIff with Duel channel mode and quad channel mode what does that mean, oh and i just checked my BIOS and there is a option up to 2400 on the mem speed, does that mean it will support 2400 mem kit? im currently running 1600 want to go a bit higher. smile.gif thx again

Dual channel just means that two separate banks will be accessed simultaneously. With Quad channel, it's the same idea but four banks will be accessed simultaneously. Even though you can install 4 DIMMS on the Sabertooth Z77, it's still only dual-channel. You can tell by looking at the markings on the motherboard around the RAM slots. They will be labeled A1, A2, B1, B2 - bank A and bank B, two DIMMs each.

Also you should have no problem getting 2400MHz RAM running with your config. I run mine at 2133MHz with absolutely no issues and I've seen plenty of other people running DDR3-2400 on SB. So, if you want to run some faster RAM, go for it! thumb.gif

Edit: I forgot you were planning 4 DIMMs. 2400 with 4 modules is a pretty tall order for the IMC, so you might have to settle for 2 DIMMs instead.

The board will, your SB might have trouble.

thank you for clearing that, smile.gif also what do u mean by just 2 DIMMS, only 2 memory sticks instead of 4 sticks?

And maybe 2133 is a better choice for SANDY then 2400 ? even tho my CPU is OC to 4.7 ghz

i was thinking maybe something like this then?

Yeah no worries! And yes 2 DIMMs means 2 memory sticks. DIMM or Module or Sticks all mean the same thing. smile.gif

DDR3-2133 would certainly be better for stability. But, I can't comment on it from personal experience as I've only overclocked with 2 modules on SB and IB. However, I've seen it done (some reviews and other members, etc...) so I don't think I'll necessarily be a problem. It might be a good idea to get some opinions from some members that have run 4 high-speed modules and get their experiences.
