Hmm don't know if I can clean up somebody else's head. I would have to start with my own...

Yoohoo! I am in!

So I've been contemplating getting another 8gb because it's so cheap and I'm just wondering what you guys do that you need 16gb for?

24gbddr320092mhz35878un.png

CPU @ 4018.4 MHz / QPI @ 3444.4 MHz
24567 MB DDR3 @ 2009.2 MHz w/ Uncore @ 3587.8 MHz (9-11-9-27-2N)

Working on 1N and tighter timings but my BIOS is buggy.


Reason:
Although it spends most of its time as of late empty, I have it for a variety of reasons. I do a lot of mathematical programming, and I like to have 2GB of RAM for every CPU thread. Good for a lot of back and forth (removes having to write to disk)

No need for a page file.

Makes an excellent RAMDisk when I do not need it.

Great for Folding/Boincing with all threads / GPUs folding (prevents system sluggishness with it only using at most 80% of each thread.

Great for multiple applications to be left running. I can have 3 or 4 instances of Photoshop running, watching a movie, editing a spreadsheet, playing Crysis, leave it running and then play World of Warcraft for a bit. All the while ripping two copies of a BluRay, one 1080p uncompressed, and the other a custom ratio for my DroidX2.

I am one of those users that doesn't really need it, but I have it so I will eventually use it. I also need the ability to run a couple instances of Visual Studio and occasionally run a VM (for testing out a specific build) but other than that. I rarely use 10~12 GB of RAM.

I also don't like having empty RAM slots tongue.gif and thought it would be fun to overclock 24GB of DDR3.

Reason for 16+ Ram: For me it was an experiment to see if I could run 18 gigs of ram by adding a spare 6 gig kit(3x2) to the new 2000 XMS3(3X4) I had just bought. Had been running the XMS kit at 1866. Long story short- Added a kit of Micron CL9 1333(from 2009), changed my settings to 1333 and surprisingly it ran well with very snappy response times.
With the help of Mr. Eiht, I adjusted my timings and my system has never run better. Have decided to continue to run 18 gigs at 1333 as a better option than 12 gigs at 1866.

Running RAMdisk and my operating system/programs puts my memory usage at approximately 40 % or 7.2 gigs of Ram. I use RAMdisk for pagefile and Temp Internet File, which saves alot of writing to my SSD raid since I can't use trim.

Running 18 gigs has been a win-win for me, the performance side of it is astounding. I have always heard not to mix ram, so I never did, until I tried the current set-up, was just fortunate to have two sets of Ram that worked well together(very similar timings and same voltages). Hands down better than the 12 gigs of 1600 Corsair Dominators that I was using before.

On a side note involving pagefile. I've almost always managed my own pagefile with mixed results over the years. Currently have just under 40 gig pagefile 18 on each of my 2 raids (ssd and hhd) with 3 on the RAMdisk. Thought I would disable the pagefie on the slower hhd's. Noticed a slowed response time in comparison. I equate the large pagefile use with the large memory use, Sure, you don't need that much memory to run your system, but it runs so much better and faster when it's set up right...

I didn't need the extra ram either but 16GB for $130 was a steal. I bought 6GB for my X58 for $220(DomGTs). Also since I have four sticks now, I can go Quad-Channel when X79 is released. I bought the ram cheap now to use it on X79 later.
