Another tack would be purchase the 64 gb of ram and dedicate half or more to a ram drive. The reality is that 32gb of high speed ram and a 256 gb SSD will rock your world as well as the wallet but that doesn't seem to be an issue if you're really considering 64.

I really think 64 GB is Overkill is he running a Super computer ???????

Multi virtual machines and combinations of servers I think not


Seriously just a big waste I have 16 GB and haven't even gone near 50% use and i'm doing all kinds so the bottom line here is to figure out how much he uses now doing Adobe vs getting what he is looking for

If he is going on the fact he uses up 8gb of ram or what ever he need to just go 16gb 4 gb is still plenty and I doubt Adobe eats like a burly wild pig

He has a board with 8 slots so a kit with six 4GB sticks for 24GB or eight 4GB sticks for 32GB would be better.

Why would an 8x4GB kit be better than a 4x8GB kit? He is still able to run in quad channel if I'm not mistaken.

My excuse is the overkill price for a single TB of storage. I'm satisfied or at least can live with the boot time and launch speed of my applications. Not a single brand recommendation for RAM in any of the replies. And my point has been missed. The whole reason I want new ram is because my new motherboard doesn't like my current RAM and gives be BSOD way to often. I work with 2k-5k footage quite often and all I know is that it would also be nice not to see my usage all the way in the 90s but that is just a side not to my main point which is the BSOD. So if anyone has any good recommendations for RAM please point me that way. I dont know much about the mechanics behind computers and don't want to bye something that will do a worse job then my current dimms.

Well, if some of your RAM is bad, then no new RAM will make that worse. I would go with a matched set of Corsair Vengeance, or G.Skill Ripjaws. Also, an SSD is for your Operating System and programs, you don't have to have a 1TB SSD. A 128/256GB will work just fine.

Always a good idea and visit the mobo's site what Giga's tested with your board. Check out the site for customers running the same board and where the sweet spot is with the ram speeds working well with the mobo and CPU. G Skill has a great site as well you could join and toss the ram speed and qty. question there. I have Crucial, GSkill and Corsair ram and all will in my opinion work flawlessly but I've bought OC high speed ram only to have practical limits placed on the mobo and CPU.

Here is the Qualified Vendor List for my motherboard http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList...ga-x79-up4.pdf. The 4gb dimms i'm using are actually on this list but not the 2gb versions which both sizes are ADATA. I will take out the 2gb dimms and see if I can at least get the BSOD to stop popping up at random but I'm still going to buy new RAM and am open to any recommendations for what's on the list.
