Need some new RAM 2x8-2x4 ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i am looking for some new ram, and have this in mind

CMD16GX3M2A2400C10   2x8

CMD8GX3M2A2400C10     2x4

 

I have 

Z97 MPOWER

I7 4790K

 

Would like to know if I can have Dual channel with this setup?

And hear what you think about the idea? downside?

 

And yes I know it's overkill with 24 GB of RAM only to game, mostly


WHY!!!

2x4GB is all you'll need. Yes you can run dual channel on that board.

they will work but why the odd 24GB?

 

how much is 32GB?


Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.

Why not just get 2 of the 8gb(2×4gb) kits and run 16gb?

I like to be odd xD

the think is i have 16GB ATM but i need some new RAM to my server so i give the RAM i have now (ugly one) to the server i get some new (cool looking) RAM to my desktop. now that i think about it 20GB sounds fine to. i just need a bit more then 16GB

the 2x8 is same price for me money/MB. And i just need a bit more then 16GB


WHY!!!
