    OEM is w/o a fan, its only the processor itself, and i think its only a 30-day or 1 year warranty...

    Retail includes box, fan, manual, and it comes with a 3-year warranty.
     
    cheesemonkey says thanks.

    you can use 2 yes. mem bandwidth will suck though. even 1 stick will work.

    You can, it'll run in dual channel instead of triple channnel, just be wary of voltages, most of the older high end DDR3 kits run at like 2.0v or higher

    I don't think the X58 platinum has solid state capacitators, plus it doesn't support SLI, only CF...well you don't want to use high voltages for memory, Intel lists a spec of 1.65 as maximum, but reviewers have taken them up to 1.8/1.9, however we don't know the long term effects of it yet since it was only released today

    I think all X58 supports both sli/xfire.

    Triple channel Tom, 3 and 6 sticks, 2 or 4 sticks will still give you dual channel but you will not be using one of the great strengths of the platform.....vis a vis.....high bandwidth triple channel.

    well I think I will stick with the AMD system I just downgraded to pocketing 300.00. I want to sit back and take it all in for a bit
