    Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced a 24GB Dominator triple-channel DDR3 memory kit designed for high-performance desktop and workstation computing applications.

    Corsair’s 24GB Dominator DDR3 memory kit has been rigorously tested in high-performance platforms based on the Intel X58 motherboard chipset for Intel Core i7 [Bloomfield] processors. It comprises six 4GB DDR3 DIMMs that operate at a frequency of 1333MHz, at latency timings of 9-9-9-27, with 1.65V VDIMM. The 24GB Dominator memory kit also features Corsair’s patented DHX+ heatsink technology for optimal cooling and reliability. The modules, equipped with signature American Racing Blue heatsink fins, are found on select Corsair Dominator DDR3 memory for Intel Core i5 and Core i7 platforms in 8GB and 12GB kits.

    Or someone with a similarly coloured DFI board...

    ... back on topic, and 24GB would be very nice for those that do very memory intensive stuff, for the rest of us - pointless. 8GB will be plenty for me come this time next year. I doubt I'll even need to go to 8GB.

    Currently it's only in use for Firefox cache:

    If I had 10GB spare I would have COD4 installed on it (waiting for the ramdisk image to save and load every reboot would be so worth it, especially since I hardly ever do).

    'On systems with 3GB of RAM, this challenging test revealed no performance difference between 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, in both cases completing in 20mins 40secs. When we boosted the memory up to 8GB on the 64-bit machine and repeated the process it took... exactly the same time again. Clearly, the 32-bit RAM limit won't have much impact on photo-editing tasks for the foreseeable future.'
