Not trying to thread crap, but 24GB is way overkill. Even on 8GB you shouldn't ever need to even have a page file; it's generally better to buy smaller but faster memory. But, memory being as cheap as it is right now, not a huge loss.

Besides the fact that he can't have 24 GB in a quad channel motherboard, there is nothing wrong with having 24 GB. Maybe he wants to use a ram drive.

Well it is physicall possible as there are 8 DIMM slots- 4x4GB + 4x2GB would equal 24GB and in Quad Channel if I'm not mistaken. And according to ASUS own website it supports up to 64GB of RAM.

Yes, you can get 24 GB by mixing and matching sizes, but that never ends well. Also, he bought all the same size sticks...

Never? See my sig, perfectly stable. But I agree he likely got the wrong kit.
