memory question (quad channel)

Postby Sithxace on 01/8/2013, 1:55 am

what would be more beneficial, 8 4gb sticks of ddr3-1600 ram of a total of 32gb in quad channel or 7 sticks of the 4gb ddr3 plus a 8gb stick for the total of 36gb ram. is the quad channel more beneficial or the extra 4gb?

I have the i7 3930k with ssds.

Put same sticks in pairs, do not mix different sticks. So same manufacturer, same frequency, same capacity. Even if it means less memory in your system.
