2 channel v 4 channel?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
for my upcoming build, i'll be getting 16gb of ram (dominator platinum)

i'd like to get the highest performance i can so i was wondering if 4 sticks of 4gb, or 2 sticks of 8gb (same speed) would yield the best results?

which should i go for?

Four sticks would cause more strain on the memory controller and motherboard chipset. It would take slightly longer for the CPU to add and retrieve data from four sticks as opposed to two.

so 2x8 would be faster then 4x4 !
hope this helped you!
