There are 3 channel DDR-3 RAM kits available on market. Would its performance be better than dual channel RAM kit, apart from RAM capacity?
I'm planning to build a new box testing server consolidation on virtualizaion running Xen/Vserver/OpenVZ as software. All servers running 64bit Linux OS.
My new planning is to get 2 sets DDR-3 1333/1600 4Gx2 kit. I may consider 3 channel kit dropping the total RAM capacity to 6G if it has better performance. Please shed me some light. TIA
Besides can mobo support dual channel RAM also allowing 3 channel RAM to work on it without sacrifying performance?
