X79 RAM 8 x 4 gig?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
G'day All,


I am about to get a ASUS Rampage IV and a 3930k. Question is can you see any problems putting 8 sticks of the below RAM in?

Should be fine. What are you going to be doing that uses such a large amount of RAM? I remember reading somewhere that having a large amount can hurt overclockability. Make sure that you aren't getting just because you can. redface.gif

Thanks man, will be mainly gaming, but also doing a bit of the editing. I had heard that somewhere as well so though I'd ask the question, so how much overclockability would I be losing? I was hoping for 4.6Ghz with a H100i

Hi,

I am planning a box with the same setup. My question is the same. What ram to use. I want to use up the 8 mem slots and at the same time be a little conservative. I am running Video editing software that could probably use the extra memory.

Thanks!

Mainly gaming? Then it's a colossal waste of money. I would for 8GB as this will be more than enough for gaming and some editing.

It's hard to say how much you could lose but why take the risk when you could save the money (for more worthwhile parts) and you don't need that much RAM... In your situation, it will bring next to no benefit, or could even prove a hindrance. redface.gif

Remember, there are plenty more variables in OCing than just the RAM. Hoping for 4.6Ghz, well you'll just have to wait and see what sort of chip you get first.

Cheers,
16GB of ram is said to be overkill,i got 16GB only because 8GB was for $75 at the time and the 16GB was $110,so i paid $35 more for an additional 8GB....When it comes to what you would lose on your cpu overclock with that much ram i cant say,i have my i5-3570k clocked @ 4.4 and i have never tried going higher than that....

I would rather go 4x8 if you are going to oc. Also it will be easier to archive a higher memory oc with 4 dimms

Thank you all for your input thumb.gif That pretty much confirmed what I was thinking. Looks like I'll stick with 16gb and see how it goes, I can always add more down the track if I want.
