emm i wasnt talking about your troubleshooting i was talking about the rubbish you speak like telling a guy whos using a dual channel system to upgrade using 3 dimms or in pairs for best performance when the guy was more concerned about his ram usage and judging buy his system he isnt too worried about bleeding edge performance

i really dont know why you would suggest to him a triple channel upgrade can you explain please ?

and again you run off talking about server stuff polluting a thread thats about a desktop machine , you keep running away with your storys , all that will do is confuse people who dont really know when they start seeing other kinds of ram ecc ram sounds the way for everything for reasons i wont go into but it doesnt get used on desktop boards so again you have added more irrelevant information to the mix!


i never asked for you to write random information to people who seek a simple answer!


and mushroomboy if that was the case then we could all build machines fit to be in the top 500 supercomputers since they are basically the same , apart from as you say the software..... lets just forget about the airconditiong units the watercooling for chips and chipsets the infiniband interconnects the fibre connections etc etc , yeh i see your point , how silly of me servers are basically just desktops and people who only need desktop tailored assistance should be told advice relating to server class troubleshooting and building !

I wasn't saying his advice was relative just that they are the same. As for them not being the same? Hardware wise they are generally pretty close to the same. Infact you can take the same cpu's you'll find in servers and build a high performance desktop. You'll just be paying out your ass for the thing... why? Because they are built more for stability but that has an extra cost, although it doesn't mean they are any different. AMD's server cores... Opteron's are all out for consumer use, same with Intel's server cores I think the Itanium? Don't post something things that will give the OP the wrong idea. You can buy server hardware for a home pc, it's really just quality of parts your paying for.

[edit] Oh and what's highlighted has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT BEING A SERVER! You can do all of that on a desktop... Why? Because the hardware is THE SAME.

the op is not using server hardware nor does he need his question polluted by server stuff as he doesnt know about it he just wanted an explanation to where his memory seemed to be disappearing !

yeh show me a desktop user that uses typical stuff , you see i have never even on the internet saw someone who used the kind of tech i mentioned just for an everyday desktop , one or two people may use some of the tech but those kind of people dont need to ask questions on forums like the op has because they are using it as a WORKSTATION not ur typical everyday websurfing desktop and they will know fine well all about the ins and outs

im quite aware that some parts of servers can be used in desktops iv been using opterons since they were released !

itaniums on a desktop ? i think not .
