    Ram usage/scaling in PrPro CS6

    Votary105

      Currently running an x58 system with 24GB of ram. I never see ram usage climb above 40% but in task manager it does cache the entire lot which is good. I’m going to upgrade to x79 soon and looking at motherboards some have 4 slots and some have 8. Will PrPro use 64GB of ram properly with a 6C/12T processor or will 32GB be enough as I’m not “limited” at the moment? I want to buy it all now (not leave 4 slots empty till i finally have a need for more ram) and will probably upgrade the whole system again in 12-18 months at the latest.

       

      Also does PrPro scale better with high frequency ram or is 1600mhz good enogh?
