Hi all,

I have just bought Dell XPS 435T barebone with Intel® X58 Chipset, now my question is what kind of memory can i put in their. Does it have to Triple Channel (3x1gb or 3x2gb) or can i put Dual (2x2GB)

Thanks
SS

If you can afford it 3x4gb, I say this as I've regretted going 3x2gb on my i7 last March and wish I went 3x4gb. If not 3x2gb no question

Thanks.. looking at above link.so that means i CAN use 2x2GB (4GB total) as dual channel?

Yes - you'll take a slight performance hit running in dual channel rather than tri-channel but it should work fine. I'm running one of those machines in dual channel with 4x2GB (8GB total) in dual channel and from the figures I've seen there's little performance loss in dual channel mode.

CAUTION: If you remove your original memory modules from the computer during a memory upgrade, keep them separate from any new modules that you may have, even if you purchased the new modules from Dell™. If possible, do not pair an original memory module with a new memory module. Otherwise, your computer may not start properly. The recommended memory configurations are:
Matched memory modules installed in DIMM connectors 2, 4, and 6 and another matched memory modules installed in DIMM connectors 1, 3, and 5.

use the front page dropdown at crucial (not the scan, i never use that as i often dont have the system to scan with), but notice now the Dell XPS 435T isnt on the list, only the xps 420 with the x58 chipset

(which says)

2GB 240-pin DIMM

* Module Size: 2GB
* Package: 240-pin DIMM
* Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300


so it looks like they havent got up to speed with that model yet

sorry, but for me, I have always had luck, and had reliable memory when I have ordered
