Can you possibly have too much RAM? Back in the days, plugging in an extra set of memory into your computer is a simple upgrade that will bring you a big boost in performance. Nowadays, unless you are using very specialized applications (Hello, my proud fellow engineers), 8GB is usually than enough for majority of the users out there. Of course, I don't know what holds for the future, but for people like yours truly who classifies "enough" as just the bare minimum, it is all about balling it out on the latest and greatest. Earlier this year, we have reviewed the G.Skill Ares F3-1600C8Q-16GAB 4x4GB memory kit. But really, 4GB modules... that is just the old stuff. With G.Skill's Ares F3-1866C10D-16GAB 2x8GB set sitting in our labs today, is big capacity finally coming together with high frequency for maximum performance? I mean, 8GB DDR3-1866 modules. Slap four in, and you get 32GB. Awesome. We installed them into our usual test platform, and fired it up for the tests to see if it stands up to the moment of truth.
