Upgrading from 32 to 64 gigs of RAM.
Posted on 2013-10-25
I was going to upgrade my machine from 32 to 64 gigs. I do a lot of virtualization which works fine on my current machine, but I wanted the ability to give each VM more ram. Right now I have multiple controllers and hard drives, so they operate pretty seamlessly. I am not looking to create more VMs, just to give each one more RAM.
My main concern is purchasing this RAM on the internet and not having it be compatible with my system. I have read through all my manuals and I foresee no issue. However I thought I would check here to see if anyone would see why this would not work.
Below is a summary of my hardware and software:
- Rampage IV Extreme motherboard.
- Intel Core i7 3960X CPU.
- Windows 8 Professional 64 bit.
I have also confirmed that I have enough space on my primary drive for the increased size of the page file.
If anyone thinks this will not work, please let me know. Also, any suggestions on the type of RAM I should get would be greatly appreciated.
