2x16gb as sys mem 2x8gb as storage, is this possible am4?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, 

as the title says, I've gotta 48gb ram installed, only 2 is showing up, presumably due to am4 motherboards only supporting dual channel. 

Currently only channels 3/4 are being utilised but the other ram has definelty been detected as there was an error message. I would like to use 1 kit as nanflash for hdd's or as extra vram maybe? haha I'm not sure. 

the 32gb kit is 3200mhz g.skill ripjaws v 2x16, the other is 2x8gb 2400mhz corsair vengence lpx. 

If this is totally stupid and a waste of time, sorry for wasting anyones time haha I think it's kinda cool. 

 

Side note kinda: As many of u probably did aswell, this morning I downloaded valorant, the anti-cheat was super suss and I vaguely remember hearing a large uproar about this during the beta. Since reading this article I have removed all riot games software an reinstalled windows. How likely is it that this anti-cheat software is actually doing the things the article claims? I mean I love sausage rolls as much as the next guy, but I have never heard of them, an like they may be super reputable but like idk. Really interested to hear what others think about this. 

 

sorry for the rant, thanks for reading.

your system already does this, all extra ram is already used for disk cache

already does this aswell, but this is so much slower than vram, so you don't want to use this.

ok fair enough, I figured it is worth asking haha. 

I shoulda asked prior to installing lmao. 

sorry about the mad off topicness of my posts, but literally just got delivered a hyper 212x (don't really want to discuss why publically ... pm i guess?) is the hyper 212x going to perform better than a h7 cryorig?

Then you have a problem somewhere, maybe a faulty mobo, ram or even your OS.

That's not how it works. All your four slots of ram should word, and each slot pair of the same color when populated should act as dual channel.

You need to get the other slots working in order to do anything useful with them, otherwise none of your ideas will be possible. Telling us which error you got would be a nice start.

Nope. It's gone, don't worry about it.
