My System Specs

Default Running Triple Channel on a Dual Channel Server

Anyone think I will have issues running 6 sticks of triple channel crucial ram in my dual C32 8 dimm server.
I put 6 dimms in and tomorrow my case shows up so the build will start and finish tomorrow night, but does anyone know if the ram will work or not??? if not I have like 6 packs of Vengeance ram just feels like a waste to run it at 1333 in my server haha

All dual/triple/quad channel ram is identical. It's the memory controller that's able to access dual channels simultaneously, not the DIMM. As long as the sticks have the same specs, you can mix and match to your heart's delight. I ran 2 dual channel kits as quad channel in my X79 build no problem before I went for a different kit.
