    Default Memory Utilization - i7 triple channel controller/GB P55A-UD6 has four memory slots

    Hi - I have a Gigabyte motherboard (P55A-UD6) with four memory slots. I have an i7 860 @ 2.8 GHz CPU. I'm hearing that i7 has triple channel memory and have read things about using 3 Gb or 6 Gb configurations. So, my question is am I better to go with 6 Gb or 8 Gb? Does going with 8 Gb cause memory to be slower than I'd want or is it always better to go with more memory...?

    only x58 mb's support triple channel memory,p55 and h55/57 support dual channel,4gb of dual channel should be plenty on your mb,you could use 8gb dual channel if you wanted but no need really imo

    if you did go for 8gb it would be better to buy a matched 8gb kit as they will have more chance of running at their rated speed/timings than two seperate 4gb kits

    you can of coarse use 6gb of ram but it would run in dual channel not triple
