When running WCG does it matter if you have single, dual, or even quad channel memory?
I just reveived my 3600 so the 1700 is going in the server cabinet and I have 2 extra 16gb sticks that I am not going to put
into my main machine since I do not even use 32gb much less 64! i wanted to put 1 each into the MB's.

Thanks!

I honestly don't believe it does. Most of their apps aren't real dependent on memory speeds. For a project like SRBase or PrimeGrid most definitely. But WCG...I'm doubting you would notice.

Will work just fine. I would load linux on it and leave it stock. Won't draw too much power and will give some nice points.

Yeah i am running a 4770k still and the thread count isn't very high but it does pretty good due to clock speeds.
