post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay the board i have now if i use 4 sticks it has to run at 2t command rate. After i get my quad and new mobo (evga 680i most likely) if i have 4 sticks will it have to run 2t as well. Becuase i plan on getting a 2 gig kit with the other two then another one down the road.

With 4 sticks of RAM you will most likely be confined to a 2T command rate because of the load it will put on the memory controller.

My understanding is that it only affects A64 CPUs as the memory controller is on the CPU itself and thus 4 sticks always defaults to 2T. Not sure how the Intel work though..
