>> No.57216148

My previous work desktop had 32, and was never maxed, but also didn't dip below about 20G while working. Current work laptop has 4, and it's so fucking painful. Pain! 8 is livable, 16 is pretty optimal between cost and use. 32 keeps you from ever feeling RAM based pain.

Of course, that presumes you're doing work like I do. If it's a Facebook & gayman machine, who knows how little you could get away with?

Not the anon you replied to but:

Except they are using the metric conversion of bit units to fool the unaware and charge the same for less data.
The metric system is great (I live in a country which uses it) but trying to force perfectly reasonable base-2 units into their base-10 counterparts has little to do with standards and more to do with jewing you out of *bytes

I don't think I've ever used more than 8GB except when playing games with memory leak issues and one time when an application I was developing had a pretty serious memory leak issue that reared it's head when processing big datasets (damn thing would eventually consume all the RAM, then the swap and finally crash).

4GB at the moment (temporarily), not counting VRAM
I accidentally ordered the wrong type of ram for a build I did a month and a half ago, so I had to take one of the two DDR4 sticks from my main build.

I literally noticed no difference until I tried playing Euro Tuck Sim (max settings) while streaming video. This was a couple of days ago, I ofc ordered another 4GB right away.

Rocket League and Minecraft was no problem, same goes for everything else I do. Running arch with i3wm

I have 8gb (2x4gb) 1066mhz Ripjaws

If I buy another 8gb (2x4gb) Ripjaws but it's not 1066mhz but actually 1600mhz, will they work?
It's hard to find the 1066mhz and 1333mhz ones

If I enable XMP, at what speed will they all run? The lowest common one?

I asked a friend and he told me to throw my current 8gb in the trash and buy a new pair of 2x8gb or something to be sure, because it's highly likely they will not be entirely compatible and I will have problems

>> No.57219398

They should just run at 1066 MHz.

Intel gimps the ram speed you are allowed to use unless you mess with your bios.

>> No.57220129

XMP makes your RAM go to its actual advertised speed instead of the boring, slow, standard default speed that all RAM runs at.

I thought I had XMP enabled back in 2012 and never looked at it again until now.
