My System Specs

The reason I added that section was just to give readers an idea of what to do with 32GB of memory. I mean you can get an 8GB kit for $40 these days so why not fill up the slots right?

Sorry I meant RAM caching. Is this feasible for a x58 or z68 sytem (assuming 24GB RAM or another large amount), or is it something that really only shines in the x79 systems? I've never heard of it before, but it sounds interesting, so I'll definitely need to look into it.
