Dual RAM channel and four RAM slot???

Go to solution Solved by Olllllli,

Essentially, 4 Ram slots on Duel Channel means 2 slots per channel. So if you have 4 slots with 8gb sticks in each, you have 16gb per channel. 


They do this so you can have more memory in total I'd assume, not entirely sure for the thinking though. 

A motherboard rated for dual channel RAM support, and came with four RAM slot, wtf?

If people online said that how much channel your CPU supports then buy how much RAM but why there are more slots?

If I use four same RAM sticks on dual channel four slot board, what will happen?

Will it perform better or you will see no difference?

if your board has 4 ram slots you are able to use 1 stick or as many as you want to

What about the performance?

if you're talking about 2 sticks of ram vs 4 ? in this case zero difference

 

but if you had quad channel thats another story

So that your RAM runs faster. You're still given the option to use more or less memory. I prefer 2x8gb or 2x16gb, unless you have quad channel. 4 sticks should still be fine as well.

Ye ofc I know it is a Dual Channel, why they do this? To increase the RAM size? without more performance?

Sometimes more RAM at a slightly slower speed = better performance. Depends on what you're doing with your computer.
