    Question Asus Sabertooth X58 Ram Issue...pls help

    Hi Guys,

    Probably a noob question but need your support.Today I've received Corsair Vengeance ddr3 1600ghz 8GB (4x2gb)memory from india,my friend brought for me and I bought Sabertooth x58 from here without knowing it supports tri channel memory architecture.
    I didn't buy CPU yet,may be I'll buy next week(Intel Core i7 960-3.20).So now what!Can I run all 4 sticks in that motherboard?Will it be ok or should I buy another pair of 4gb(2x2gb) later to meet the motherboard's memory recommendation (6x2gb=12gb)?My friend will go India again after Eid.Thanks.

    Your pc will run with those 8 gigs of ram. There is no restriction that you have to use up all the slots to get ur pc working. I personally use 2x2gb of ram whereas I can add up to 8 gigs. So it is upto you if you want 4 gigs more.
    BTW, remember to use 64 bit OS cos 32 bit OS does not use more than 4 gigs.

    yes they will work but they will run @ dual channel if u want triple channel (only X58 supports it) then u need either 3 or 6 sticks of 2gb/4gb...

    thanks EyE SpeeD | DeViL: Now I understand after reviewing on net,for the fourth stick performance won't be as high as triple channel but still better than dual channel,but I'll go for tri channel first cuz 6 gigs of tri channel beats 8 gigs of dual channel ,later I'll mange two more 2gb for full tri channel support
