Hi there,

Since there seems to be a (slight?) performance advantage when 3 RAM sticks are installed (vs. 2 or 4), what about when more RAM (16 GB) is installed among 2 sockets vs. less RAM (12 GB) is installed among 3 sockets?

Given the current cost of the 8GB memory modules, some insight will be significantly appreciated.

Many thanks,


Mac Pro (3.2 GHz, 4 core Nehalem), Mac OS X (10.6.6), 3 GB RAM
