Just curious, but why is everyone wanting 8 memory slots so very badly?
Not many people are going to be running 64gb of memory.
When it comes to decent enthusiast memory the best deal is Corsair. When I mean enthusiast I am talking about DDR3 memory featuring 1600MHz, CL9 timings and 1.5 Volts. You can get two packs of Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 1600MHz memory for $99.99 shipped
So for $200 shipped you can buy two kits and get 32GB of system memory on an 8 slot board.
Corsair announced a 32GB kit
for high-end users that is 32GB (4 x 8GB) with 1866MHz clock speeds, CL9 timings and 1.5 Volts for $999. If you wanted two of those kits for 64GB of memory you are looking at $2000...
Just curious if people are going for 32GB here or 64GB. I think most people would be happy with a 16GB kit for 2011/2012. Unless they wanted to do Ram cache or something.
