I have done some searching and I have not found a straight forward answer to my problem. As all the questions I came over searching were concerning using only two RAM slots with not more than 4GB of RAM.
I am currently building a PC for the purpuse of doing some really heavy graphics; mostly with 3dsmax and the Unity3d engine. The PC will have +- the following set up.
MOTHER BORAD - ASUS ROG Rampage IV Extreme Intel X79
PROCESSOR - Intel Core i7-3930K // Intel Core i7 3820 3,60 GHz
GPU - AMD Raden 7970
RAM - 4x 16GB (2x8GB) 1600Mhz Kingston DDR3 (64GB RAM can be handled by the motherboard)
I have two unsolved problems:
Would there would be an option to use just 32GB/64GB RAM slots in the Mother Board; which would save me some cash for now. Or would it cause some serious problems such as dramatical performance drop?
The second question is: How can I tell if the processor would be able to handle the ammount of 64 GB of RAM?
According to TomsHardware.com the i3930K needs 2 minutes to render something that i7 3820 needs about 2:30 min Intel Core i7-3930K (faster) Intel Core i7 3820 3,60 GHz (slower but 2x cheaper)
