Wow... 32GB of RAM. Isn't Sandy Bridge the mainstream and low end platform? Why on earth would anybody with such a platform need 32GB of RAM? :lol:

It's probably more of an Intel internal thing so that they have a similar IMC across different products. This is the base IMC for future products like Sandy Bridge E and so on.

Gotcha'.

I was just imagining a budget, sub-$100 board with advertisement that it supports 32GB of RAM. :lol:

It's really not the right platform for features like this but if it's possible, it's possible. Nothing against that ;)

No, not at all.

I just kinda' laugh at somebody paying so little for the board and processor, but then dumping... thousands(?) almost on the RAM.

Would be kinda' funny, is all. :lol:

my 24gb sells for less than $1000 now and that includes other brands too. the only sick ram price I have seen is the g.skill 48gb 1900mhz ram kit for the evga sr-2 mb. It sells on newegg for $3500. now that's ridiculous.

Yeah, just checked newegg and it'd probably be between $500 and $700.

Still, dumping that much for RAM when the mobo and proc combined cost maybe half that seems... well, retarded. :lol:
