Triple channel is just a marketing scam to get you to buy 3 ram sticks.

From what reviews have shown, i think that it is pretty obvious that the 2600K is a much better option than the 950.

you got that right, opn my setup I am pushing 21GB/sec

exactly the same situation here.

i am an audio producer, CPU utilization is history in our virtual environment, but memory is a crucial need.

there's too much ignorance on why we need so much memory. but i insist this question to be answered if anyone can.

some points to slim down your replies, post-audio production plugins are 64 bit already and DAW apps already make use of the max. memory you apply, so dont come up with things "you dont need more then 6 gig", apparently Bill Gates said something like that decades ago, but im sure though he didnt mention gigs.

anyway, how come SB doesnt support triple channel?

believe it or not, ive heard of IB just here, and have dilemmas where i should invest now. all i can say is, i need at least 16 gigs of ram, fast ram. i had brilliant experience with Kingston through my life, my DDR 3200 still works like charm on my ancient AMD.

i see a lot of doubt regarding triple channel and even quad channel tech. can anyone convince me that 2x4GB on dual channel has no difference between 4x2GB in quad tech. my question is purely theoretical (same size, just challenging channels)

I'm not entirely convinced that a triple channel setup is no better than a dual channel setup. My G.Skill Pi-series scores a 7.9 on Windows in triple channel @ 1608Mhz and a 7.6 in dual channel @1608 Mhz.
