__The 16GB RAM CLUB__ - Page 3

i haz 16GB. biggrin.gif

i have 16GB because i am addicted to RAMdisk. i've had 8GB since 2007, with 2GB as RAMdisk, still runs out of memory at times when i have multiple VMware open. now i can have 6GB RAMdisk without worry about running out of memory biggrin.gif

a bit overkill, but seeing DDR3 is here to day, 16GB at 1600MHz cas9 probably won't be out of date any time soon. plus, i now rarely close stuff, even load some program minimised at startup.

Added you wuyanxu.
Wasn`t shure about your RAM speed.
So i put the values from your sig at the list.
If you are running it @1605MHz please let m know and i will change it.
Thanks for joining!

Thanks for adding me.

These XMS3 are rated to run at 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.65v, memtest passed at 1.5v. That verification was when everything at stock (RAM at its rated speed)

I am now running all stock because BFBC2 has been crashing lately, trying to figure out what's causing it. Afterburner and FRAPS seems like the suspects ATM.

For overclock, I will be running between 1333 and 1600, depend on CPU speed, due to summer is coming, I don't think I'll be running at overclocked speed for next few months. I'll only be overclocking when there is noticeable performance gain. 2.8GHz i7 is fast enough for my screen resolution. Still limited by graphics card at the moment.

No one else with 16GB or more to join the club? Thats sad. I really thought that there were more people who love RAM.

Depends on what you are doing with your PC!
If you are just gaming and webrowsing then yes.
BTW: @OCN it is allways nice to have a bit more than the average PC_user biggrin.gif

It's because the majority of people don't use more than 4-8GB and having too much RAM is actually a bad thing. 16GB would be a terrible idea for anyone who primarily games with their system.

I know that!
There are some guys @OCN who don`t play games, watch youtube_vids and twitter.
Running VM`s and use Photoshop or After Effects will need some more RAM.

And Yes the poor IMC gets overloaded and you can`t overclock anymore.

why would you need 16gb unless you are doing hardcore rendering?

Because of this.
Big comps with massiv particles in After Effects @high resolutions for example need lots of RAM. And running many Virtual Machines requires also some RAM to feed the different OS`s. Or photoshop.
