Rampage Gene II memory upgrade query

BallistiX
Level 7
So I am looking to upgrade from 6gig of Trident Gskills to 16 gigs of ram. My question is this, if I run 4 sticks of 4gig 1600, will I still avail of tri channel or does the system resort to dual?

Many thx ahead of time for responses.

Dave.

Hello BallistiX and welcome

The rampage gene II supports triple channel ram, you should go with a 12GB or 24GB kit.

Triple channel I am aware of, but I use photoshop and Lightroom and need the full amount I can get to work, which is only 16gig given I am using Win 7 Home Premium. I am sure that the extra 4 gig will make up for the loss of tri channel when using heavy memory hogging apps. But my question still remains, with 4 sticks, does tri channel still work when only 12 gig usage of the 16 is in use? Thanks for the response Nate.

I've never run ram out of it's specifications but what I suspect would happen (although I could be wrong) is 12GB will run in triple channel while the other 4GB will run in single channel.
