    SB-E supports running in triple-channel mode. Mixing types of sticks will make it next to impossible for XMP to work properly though. I would just run the triple channel until he really needs to upgrade, in that case he should get an entire set.

    I'm running these: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DD...

    2600k is high end SB-E is enthusiast. Lower model SB chips, i3 non-k i5 could be considered mainstream.

    First of all, the 2600k says right on it "Sandy Bridge" not "Sandy Bridge-E". Second of all, 1155 is Intel's current mainstream lineup. You can say all you want but an enthusiast CPU does not have an iGPU either. You can refer to it as "high-end" but in the end it's just a "high end mainstream" cpu and even using the term high-end is pushing it imho. Honestly, mainstream performance model is a more accurate term because SB-E is really Intel's high end offering.

    I never called 2600k SB-E?? I said it's high end, which it is. SB-E is enthusiast which you no comprende? :slap:

    Ninja edit me huh?

    Sorry are you Intel's marketing dept? No I don't think you are. Regardless of how you want to dress it up simply because of the price/perf the 2600k is a high end CPU. High end mainstream?? get a grip honestly. Who say's a high end CPU cannpt have a bloody IGP, sounds like you're making it up as you go along to me. 1155 SB 4C/8T chips are high end. 4C/4T mainstream and 2C/4T, 2C/2T are entry level. Anything underneath ie Pentium is entry level. SB-E is enthusiast. Dunno why your spitting your dummy out, I am saying SB-E is above the high end 2600K HENCE the enthusiast part.

    1155 single core budget
    1155 i3 2c/2t entry level
    1155 i5 mainstream
    1155 i7 high end

    2011 all enthusiast.

    Neither are you? I'm talking about the platform, not individual CPUs. You need to chill out a bit and actually read what I said.
