I purchased i7-3770k processor, 180GB intel SSD 520 and DZ77RE-75K. As I require to run many VM's (more than 7), I decided to purchase 32GB Ram (4*8GB). But product specification for i7-3770k processor in intel website is showing that Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) is 32 GB. Anyone knows about this memory type? I am planning to buy four DDR3 - 1600 MHz . Is it supported by i7-3770k processor?
The Intel® Core i7-3770K processor supports 1600MHz non-ECC memory at 1.5v.
