    So I ordered a 6 core mac pro and am waiting for it to ship, but in the meanwhile I have a question about ram configurations. I already have 4 x 4 gig ecc 10600 ram. I also realize that according to techs, using all 4 slots will put the mac pro from triple channel ram to single channel as opposed to 2x dual channel. Knowing that would I see better performance with 12 gigs in triple channel configuration or 16 gigs in single channel configuration? Money isn't an issue here as I already own all of the ram. Any benchmarks/experiences on the differences would be awesome. Thanks!

    PS. I will primarily be using the mac pro for after effects cs5, photoshop, premiere, final cut, logic, and some gaming.

    There are already threads on memory optimization. Better to go there for your answers/questions.
