Actually I was wrong. The i7-3970 series has 4 Channel DDR, not 3.

So if you populate all 8 slots with 4GB single rank per DIMM, you would have 32GB.

Unless you run complex simulation, I can't see why you need more than 32GB.

I planned to start with 16GB only, and your post due to that model showing that i should go with 32GB if 4 channels or 24GB if 3 channels, so in both cases i will go with more than what i was going to start with, so then why i want to go higher than 32GB anyway, 32GB was the most or maximum i was planning to do if i needed, i am happy with 16GB in my laptop, and i am sure even 8GB will do the job great enough, now i will start as 32GB with RAM means i am done with RAM and CPU.

Thanks again for clarify this point about the RAM.
