Buy 2 more sticks of ram, make homemade Quad-Channel kit?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have this set http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233599

I bought them for my ASUS Maximus VI Extreme build, but the board still didn't work right after i installed these new memories so i emailed ASUS, but they were not working due to "extreme weather" and so i coun't be without a PC, so i bought a 3930k and Sabertooth X79, which honestly is alot better then the 4770k anyways.

I have these in my cart right now for another set for quad-channel is it going to work, or am i going to have to buy a whole new quad-channel set.

I went from a 16GB set of GSkill's down to this 8Gb kit of corsair's and its not enough, 8GB is full all the time even for simple things for me, is the only reason why im worried about quad-channel and another 8GB set anyways.

You don't need quad channel at all. If you want to save money, x79 is able to do single, dual, triple or quad channel so you can just use the existing ram if you want. Or if you want quad, yes, you can order the same kit and there's a 99.9% chance that they'll work together. There's always a very low chance they may not like to play friendly.

I can't deal with having just 8GB of ram, my system is at 90% ram usage all the time now i need to get 16GB back.
