Exceleram Serves Up 32GB of "Grand" RAM for Sandy Bridge-E

Paul Lilly

German memory and storage maker Exceleram unveiled a massive 32GB quad-channel DDR3 memory designed for Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge-E platform. For most users, 32GB goes well beyond the point of diminishing returns, but if you live and breathe excessive hardware, well, here you go.

The kit is comprised of four 8GB dual-channel DDR3-1333 memory sticks, each one covered in a "Red Culvert" heatsink. Timings are set at 9-9-9-24 and the operating voltage at 1.5V.

Since the kit is 'only' four sticks wide, any LGA2011 motherboard should be able to run them, as the boards we've seen so far have either had four or eight DIMM slots spread out across both sides of the CPU socket. Of course, you don't need a Sandy Bridge-E system to run this kit, and Exceleram even lists a handful LGA1155 boards with confirmed compatibility, albeit in dual-channel mode, obviously.

Price? Exceleram didn't list one, which is probably a good thing if you're allergic to sticker shock.
