    Default Memory slot vs Memory Amount.

    Hi,

    Just curious on this, as to Qpi needed for stable OC with certain ram total in different slot
    configurations.

    Example.
    8 slots and wanting 16 gigs.
    2g x 8 or 4g x 4. Which would pull the (Most voltage) as to slot configuration?
    Same ram, Timings ect and voltage requirement.

    Understand Tri and Quad ect. but just wondering on down the line as to ram on hand and pricing.

    Bottom line, would it be total ram per slot versus slots used as to voltage needed.

    Anyone want to wrap around that one.

    Less sticks is always better on the voltage requirements. Each added stick increases the power needed for stable operation.
    World records are usually set with just two or three sticks on the board.
    But 'full population of all the slots' capability is usually built-into mainboard designs.

    Depends on the board. QPI must be kept within .3V of memory though.

    More memory, less overclock due to more stress on the IMC

    Understand the ratio to be kept, And take the board out of the equation, What would take lower voltage
    all things being equal.

    In your opinion.

    A wash?

    .3 or .5? I believe it is .5 with that chip.
