Ram

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Is it best to get 2x sticks of 4x sticks? Is there a performance difference at all? I am going to go with 32gb DDR4 3000 for my build and I don't know if I should get 2x 16gb sticks or 4x 8gb sticks. I've seen where the 4x sticks can be more expensive than the 2x sticks such as Corsair LPX ram. and because of cost I am leaning toward 2x 16gb sticks.

Udpate: Using 5930k cpu

Thanks...Al

It's always better to get less sticks. Two sticks put less strain on the memory controller which means more overclocking of the ram frequency. Also, is leaves to slots open if you ever want to get more. thumb.gif

So, if I get 2x 8gb now and decided later to get an additional 2x 8gb sticks, I won't have any problems as long as it's the same type of ram from the same company? I thought you'd want to get all of them at once because they come from the same lot.

Thanks for the input.

Alrighty. Thanks

I found this online. Is this statement accurate about ram? It seems to make since and simplify things to me.

DRAM itself is a 64 bit device, when you run DRAM in Dual channel it is used as a single 128bit device and can be up to 10-15% performance wise, tri channel operates as a 196 bit device and can pick up another 5-9 percent performance wise, true quad channel as on the X79 mobos runs the DRAM as a 256 bit device and performance increases even a little bit higher than tri-channel.

I found this online. Is this statement accurate about ram? It seems to make since and simplify things to me.

DRAM itself is a 64 bit device, when you run DRAM in Dual channel it is used as a single 128bit device and can be up to 10-15% performance wise, tri channel operates as a 196 bit device and can pick up another 5-9 percent performance wise, true quad channel as on the X79 mobos runs the DRAM as a 256 bit device and performance increases even a little bit higher than tri-channel.

Only in certain cases that are really Ram intensive. Gaming wise you will most likely see 5% in the best case.

Ram disks and the like is where quad channel takes the cake but even then I doubt you can see the difference between dual and quad.
Small wonder.

I read a review that compared the two types of memory and it concluded what you've stated, however, although the % may be different, the concept presented is accurate though, correct?
