2011 vs Ivy bridge
 
I am thinking the 2011 because of the 8 DIM slots available. I want to utilize ram disk for certain things. While with Ivy bridge, right now motherboards only support 4 maybe 6. But is Ivy bridge worth sacrificing the couple extra DIM slots?

LOL, you mean, Troll is out of the dungeon now! What the heck do you need all that ram for?

P.S. - I know, I shouldn't bite....

I want to use RAM disk. I thinking of tossing a game on it for better load times and what not. Nothing super practical, mainly just because I can.

Wouldnt a bigger SSD serve your purpose instead of populating all RAM slots?

I see a set of RAM for 2011 its around $200. Might as well keep 16GB (4x4) or 8GB (4x2) and use the leftover money for SSD.

RAM disk is about 3X a RAID SSD setup's speeds.

If you have the $$ for LGA2011 and the need for the extra memory then there is not reason to get IB instead.

Clubfoot153 May 2, 2012 12:26 PM

What is this IB you speak of?

Eldonko May 2, 2012 12:27 PM

Ivy Bridge?

Oh ok. Yeah that was my question. If IB would be worth sacrificing the memory. Thanks.
