    Upgrading from 12GB to 24 GB ram

    rowby Level 1

      I currently have 12 gigs of ram and I want to upgrade to 24 gb.


      My system is working great and fast with Premiere CS5 with the Mercury Playback Engine, but I want improvement in AE CS5


      I have a similar question in the Adobe Hardware forum but I figured since it is Aftereffects I want to see my performance improvement I should ask it here too.


      Here are my current specs:


      Intel Core i7 CPU   X 908@ 3.33GHz


      ASUS P6X58D  Premium - LGA 1366  motherboard


      My current memory is  12 gig of Corsair CMD12GX3M6A1600C8 Dominator 12 GB PC3-12800



      There are no more slots to add memory (of course!).


      So I would need a complete 24 memory kit and will need to ebay I guess the 12 gig kit.


      On the aftereffects forum someone mentioned they are buying/considering 24GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600

      I would appreciate any suggestions for brand and "model" of memory to buy.
