Somewhere.
6x2GB but had some fairly serious paging going on a few weeks ago, so I'll probably put in a purchase request to bring me up to 6x4GB

10 GB, but now that CS5 is 64-bit I'm routinely using much more of it. Considering buying 4 4GB sticks to round it out to 24 GB (Have to toss the 1 GB sticks that shipped).

I added a poll for the OP. I hope the options are acceptable; I left the final option for those who have/claim to have more memory installed in the MPs than is officially supported by Apple (which, AFAIK, is no more than 32GB in any edition of the MP at this time).

If you do not have more information to add than just your specific amount of RAM, please suffice it to vote in the poll; feel free to post if you have something substantive to say.

(Also, in case it isn't obvious, please don't troll.)

7 GB in my 2009 quad... 3x2GB + 1GB in the 4th slot.

So far, it seems to work ok, but is this configuration not advisable for some reason?

14GB. 1GB x2 (stock), 2GB x6.
Same here. 2008 Mac Pro. IIRC, my stock RAM is 2x1GB Hynix and purchased 3 - 2 x 2GB Mushkin pairs for a total of 14GB.

I'm thinking about replacing the stock pair with 2x4GB sticks to bump it up to 20GB.

Hard to swallow that I paid $500 for 2x1GB sticks when the first Mac Pro came out in 2006.
