It would be awesome if I could re-wire ram slot to link to SSD drive and use 4 64GB SSD's as RAM.... thats 256GB RAM..... doubt thats possible.... but would rock...

That is one overkill of a board. Talk about bragging rights. Fabe

Interesting Bill, my list from ZDnet shows that starter supports 8GB. I wonder which one is right.....

Edit: Seems my previous link was pre-release from April 2009 so Bill, you are probably correct on this one.

Of course, it would be slow as all get out. RAM is massively faster than SSD flash memory.

Not unless you had an application that would really use it. Biggest speed increase for most people is between 1GB and 2GB of RAM. 2 to 4GB is modest. 4gb to 8gb is almost imperceivable. More or less, if you aren't running a a few select types of applications...more RAM doesn't not equate to faster or better.

Even Ultimate/Enterprise limit the RAM for 64bit, as the actual limit for how much 64bit can actually address is around 18EB.

OK. I am trying to find info on this and 1EB is ~1,000,000TB, so wouldn't that mean the limit is 18,000,000,000GB (18 billion GB)? of Allocatable Ram? Windows supports 192GB at its highest win platform, but that is way less than 18,000,000,000GB....

32x hits limit at 4GB Is the limit for 64x 18EB?



OR? am I like waaaaaaay off?

Only from EVGA, they make some of the best motherboards (socket 1366/775) on the market, and as a very loyal owner (790i Ultra SLi), this is why I love 'em.
