    Triple channel....

    So according to this article triple channel memory is not that benifcial.

    So what i wanna know is, does an i7 motherboard/cpu require "triple channel memory" or can you put any thing in. Like 4gb of DDR3 RAM, dual channel i suppose.

    So if you can do dual channel, im guessing you can as the article did (but if someone could clear it up for me), then why should i spend £119 on DDR3 RAM which costs £65 early last year. I should just got for a fast DDR3 dual channel set right?

    Re: Triple channel....

    Dual and Single-channel work fine, Intel's own X58SO board has 4 DIMM slots so you can go triple/dual.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
