Hello everyone,

Just out of pure curiosity does anyone have a 2.4gz 12-core with roughly 48gigs of ram? If so what is your geekbench score (64bit) I can't seem to find these results anywhere.. I'm curious to know how much my current 12-core 2.4ghz (19665 score) will increase to once I swap out my 12gigs and replace it with 48gigs.

Sorry for the newbish type question..
Thanks!

Uh, it probably won't.

Geekbench doesn't really care about how much memory you've got installed. Unless you're replacing that 12GB with 48GB of **faster** RAM (unlikely, most stuff is the same speed these days)- then you're not going to see any difference in the benchmark result because the speed of the system is exactly the same.

The only thing more RAM is going to let you do is run more programs or handle workloads that require more RAM (ie, After Effects, Cinema 4D, Modo, etc).

Although I don't have your exact system, I found that more ram, up to a point, does slightly increase the performance under Geekbench2, but more importantly, as ScottishCaptain points out, it will be of definite benefit if you use productivity apps that take advantage of (and justify) your expenditure.

I will need this extra ram for adobe after effects since im starting to get more technical with visual effects. and i do a lot of work in cinema 4d as well. also im switching over to adobe premiere pro for editing.

kind of off topic, but will this ram work: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-1333MHz-240-Pin-Single-CMX8GX3M1A1333C9/dp/B006XB56VI/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1349058965&sr=8-14&keywords=PC3-10600E,+1333+MHz,+DDR3+desktop+memory

Yes. I've used it in my 2009 Mac Pro (after the EFI hack, but before I removed the 5680 chips and re-installed the 5580s).

EFI hack? Sorry for being so un-knowledgaeble, but what does that mean? what would i have to do? Will the ram still function properly?

So just to confirm once more, if i buy 8 of these sticks (http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-1333MHz-240-Pin-Single-CMX8GX3M1A1333C9/dp/B006XB56VI/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1349058965&sr=8-14&keywords=PC3-10600E,+1333+MHz,+DDR3+desktop+memory) i will have no problem at all, and do they seem like they are pretty good sticks?
I've used the same ram in a Mac Pro and I did not have any problems with it. Furthermore, I am now using it in a selfbuild and I have not had any problems with it; however, I am not in a position to state that you will not have any problem at all - Look to the seller.

Thanks for your assistance! I will just buy 8 of those sticks and call it a day! It's going to cost me way less than to go to OWC

Also is that ram ecc fully buffered?
