Custom external 8 slot ram?  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Custom external 8 slot ram modules wired from EVGA X58 classified? The mobo only got 6 slot.

I'm asking this because someone on another forum claimed he had this setup and it just sounds a little too good to be true.

this is my core specs as of right now

Intel® Core™ i7-975 Extreme Edition 3.33 GHz 8M L3 Cache LGA1366 O.C.ed to 4.5Ghz
EVGA X58 SLI Classfied Intel X58 Chipset SLI/CrossFireX DDR3 Mainboard w/GbLAN,USB2.0,IEEE1394a,&7.1Audio
16GB (2GBx8) Corsair Dominator DDR3/1800MHz Triple Channel Memory Module
2x NVIDIA GeForce Hydro Copper GTX295 1.7GB 16X PCIe Video Card in sli
U12-40500 ATX Active PFC 80+ Bronze Fully Modular 1600 Watts Power Supply
3TB (1.5TBx4 RAID-1) SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
LG BH08-LS20K 8X Internal Super Multi Blu-Ray Rewriter
Sony 20X Double Layer Dual Format DVD+-R/+-RW + CD-R/RW Drive
custom liquid cooling for CPU, RAM, and GPUs...

I'm thinking of throwing in a 360gig solid state drive tho..I hear there like instantaneous data transfer..also I'm told its possible to run my I7 stable OCed up to around 6ghz...I might try it for ****s and giggles

Imagine an I7-975 extream OC'ed to 6ghz....I could watch HD porn at blazing speeds

the setup aint the best it could be but thats because it started out as something else over a year ago and I just kept building on it...if I had just had the whole thing custom made at one time it would be alot nicer looking inside lol..but parts change so fast it never works like that

a normal size ATI bord just dosen't have much room to work with...Its like trying to work on a little jap car..they cram the ****ing engine in to tight there's no room to add on

Some of the 1366 Server motherboards have 8 memory slots, but I cant find any EVGA branded ones.

Yes, I know server boards can have 8 slots. This guy is saying he custom modded a 6 slot mobo to use 8 slot of ram.
