hey, i want to upgrade ram in my computer, but dont know what is better for me :
(do i need special mobo for tripple channel ? )
a, 8gb ddr3 2000mhz, cl9, dual channel or
b,8gb ddr3 1600mhz cl7, dual channel or
c, 6gb ddr3 2000mhz cl8 triple channel or
d, 6gb ddr3 1600mhz cl7 triple channel
You will need a motherboard based on the X58 chipset which supports triple channel DDR3.
what is the difference between tripple and dual channel ram ? its confuing and i dont understand it. can i use tripple channel for amd 2 x6 procesor compatible mobo ? thanks
each set of DIMMs is a channel, most AMD motherboards are dual channel meaning they have two sets of DIMMs, making 4 memory slots. my motherboard has dual channel (slots A1, A2, B1, and B2). an intel motherboard has up to 3 sets of DIMMs totaling 6 slots
No you can't use triple channel for even the latest AM2+/AM3 boards because they support dual channel only. Currently, the only boards supporting triple channel are the Intel X58 boards for LGA1366 CPUs.
honestly 6gb ddr3 1600 is plenty fast-you should not need more
thanks so much for the help. i will go with 6gb 1600mhz dual channel
