16gb DDR31600

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Wondering if it is possible to run three sticks of ram. I currently run two sticks of 4gb and I have an 8gb stick from a previous build that I would like to use. I thought I read some time ago that it may make my system unstable, can someone confirm that? I need the extra ram for photo editiong, 8gb isn't enough. The 8gb stick is of the same vendor and the same speed.

Yes you can run all 3 together as long they are all the same speed and voltage but they will run in single channel and not in dual channel

I see. Well, if I ran the 8gb and one 4gb then they would run in dual channel yes?
