I'm an optimist--bring on the tasty software than needs it! I still have four memory slots to fill.

Just a did you know comment...

but some boards (Z390) with 4-dimm slots perform best when all are filled. It appears Gigabyte's Z390 board use a "T-Topology" (whatever that means) where they perform best with all DIMM slots filled as discussed here and here. Personally I think all modern day boards are this way now, but...

I remember at the Corsair forums where we'd advise "downclocking" your RAM when all 4 slots were used because of bandwidth saturation concerns. Today's boards don't seem to have that issue anymore

Anyway I'm not saying this applies to you, just FYI.

I was once asked if I were embarrassed for asking so many questions. Well, I replied, only a man who has nothing to learn should be embarrassed.
