    Check out Denithor's post in the sticky at the top of this forum: -There's virtually no impact on system performance from memory speeds/timings and almost no difference between dual and triple channel mode.

    Looks like memory speeds/timings with i7 aren't as important as previous platforms. It sure is hard making that adjustment in thinking.
