Cyberpunk & Mainframes
The max memory of my board specs says 64GB DDR3, but my CPU max memory is 256GB. I believe the board came out before there were 16GB DDR3 DIMMs; 8GB were out (so 64GB in my case). Is it a hard limit from the motherboard? a hard limit from the PCH? Or does it just depend on the CPU and that max memory is a support/guideline thing? Is there a reason why the board wouldn't initialize 8x16GB vs 8x8GB? I'd love to go for 128GB in the future on my board (workstation). It's an Asrock X79 board, quad channel, 8 slots with a Xeon E5 CPU.
