Does anyone have any benchmark comparisons? I'd be very surprised if there was any kind of noticeable difference between running 2 sticks in dual channel versus 4 sticks in quad channel.

I haven't run dual channel in my X79 setup, but the memory benchmarks in SiSoft SANDRA give high numbers for quad channel. They may approach 2X dual channel.

As for benchmarks involving real applications, those are harder to come by. I can't remove RAM from my X79 system without removing the CPU heatsink/fan, so it wouldn't be a casual test.

Even if there is no real world benefit to having quad-channel memory, I see no reason why one should not take advantage of it.

Quad channel will always beat dual channel. Look at the Memory Assessment thread here: What's your memory assessment speed?

I can....leaving extra memory slots open for future expansion.

That's surprising, in a good way, because there hasn't really been a huge difference between single and dual channel memory.

When three memory modules are installed, the architecture will operate in triple-channel architecture mode
So it means that if I get this motherboard,



there are 8 slots and so i have to use the 8 slots to get quad channel ??

or can i use 4 for getting quad channel and where should i insert the 4 ram (like insert one leave one and inert another one) so i can get quad channel
To achieve Quad Channel the memory sticks come 4 sticks in a pack. You would want to install them either on blue or black memory slots . Read the motherboard manual on how to install the memory in Quad channel correctly .
