Keep thinking this stuff can't get much cheaper, but it does.

Got this kit when it was around £140 before Christmas and thought it was a cracking deal then. Very good value imo - not the fastest stuff out there but able to run at 1.5v so good for helping keep the heat down if you're overclocking your system, plus the added benefit of being in 3x4gb format, again better for overclocking than using 6 sticks.

Only drawback is the relatively tall heatspreaders, so check you have room to clear your cpu cooler (quite a few overhang the first ram slot on some of the x58 boards).

Wonder how many iterations of Windows will pass before we actually need or use this amount of ram? Though the way M$ are going it'll probably be the next version.
640k ftw.

Ive got 4x2gb of XMS3 around 12 months ago and it was £100 for 2x2gb sticks the XMS3 is more expensive than this at the minute I think the reason being is that the heat spreaders on these make it very hard to use in any Dimm slot that is close to the heat sink I have a Titan Fenrir HSF and these Dimms are to tall to go under it else i would of had 16gb of the stuff. I know there's no real reason to have this much ram but we do because we can when I check task manager the most that's ever in use at on time is just over 4gb and that's when encoding 2 videos at the same time the problem i find with all dimm slots populated is its harder to get a good overclock, all i can manage is 3.7ghz but with just 2 sticks i can get well over 4ghz with less voltage

You just need a couple of VM's running under windows and you'll chew up the ram in no time.

Good ram, ive got 4x2 of this!
#7
Unless you're doing CAD, heavy picture or video editing, more than 6gb is pointless.
#8
is the 12GB going to be enough?
#9
Stonking! Got it a couple of weeks ago for £125.97 and was told prices would be going up after Chinese New Year!!

This can't last forever though folks

And Virtualising...

May be a silly question, but is this the sort of RAM that'd slot nicely into a new MBP?
#12
Nice deal, but very depressing for someone who is in the market for some DDR2 :-( so bloody expensive!

Having done some reading up on this RAM kit, I am definitely going to go for it, but I can't see any option for getting free delivery at Scan! I am an AVForums member, have been for years, but can't find the option anywhere. Can anyone help please?

Nevermind, I've sorted it out. :o)

Nope, this is desktop ram. No laptop could possibly install this kit

I tend to only use 1 VM at a time but for those who have the need to run more then..............

do most motherboards use Intel triple channel processors? will these only work if triple processors is supported?

Tri-channel is designed to work with i7 9xx cpus/X58 motherboards. There's nothing architecture specific about this RAM, just that it provides you with 3 sticks to utilise this feature on these particular setups. You can still use it with dual channel setups but as they work with multiples of 2 you'll have a spare stick, or you'll have to leave one of the channels empty (but it will still work, as long as your board supports DDR3, of course).

Best to check what setup you have (i.e cpu) and report back here if you need further guidance rather than buy something that you don't need.
