i7 (gen 1) and their Xeon counterpart owners know that it's not a fun idea to put more than three DIMM's of tri-channel RAM on your motherboard if you plan on sustaining a comfortable overclock. However, when you look at past posts regarding users who've added 12gb of RAM into their system, everyone tells them 'no' in reference to filling up all 6 DIMM slots. I'm at a point right now where I can quickly buy a 12gb 4x3 kit (after selling my current kit) for less than $100. Though unnecessary, why not. However, since I'm only using three DIMM slots, in theory it should not affect my OC due to the memory controller not adding any additional strain on my CPU.

Does anyone have any input? I want to buy, but I don't want to lose the pretty voltage I sustain on my Xeon to power up additional ram I don't need - just want.

Sorry for bumping a thread before 24 hours, but I would greatly appreciate anyone's advice in this matter before I make a Newegg purchase this evening.
