Will quad channel memory be a problem on a mb supporting dual channel?

welcome to newegg! can i help you with RAM today?
I'm upgrading a computer I assembled 3 years ago and giving it to my younger brother. Can you see my order history - if so I purchased the system from new egg
The motherboard is in my order history. It currently has 8GB of ram so I'm taking it to the full 16gb in 4x4 config it supports
The goal is for it to play fallout 4 smoothly for him.
Ryan R.
unfortunatly i cant see your order history
but the sales team can
if you dont mind me sending you to them
I can past in the link to the mb
Ryan R.
sweet alright
Will quad channel memory be a problem on a mb supporting dual channel?
Ryan R.
it might be, what ram are you planning on running?
That looked like a match.
btw - I'm upping the memory and the graphics card. The machine has a 3.4 thurban 6 core processor
Ryan R.
let me see
I am not overclocking the machine.
(worth mentioning since the mb does support it)
Ryan R.
yeah
just seeing
it works
k.
Ryan R.
yeah just threw it into a compatibility issue checker, and nothing came up
Good. Now the graphics card.
Ryan R.
what are you thinking?
fallout 4 smoothly
what cpu is in it?
Well, how would Fallour 4 fair with this? http://www.newegg.com/Product...
Ryan R.
needs more vram
Figured. It's was next to top of line when bought, but that was 4 years ago. The processor is the key though - if it's so old I need to replace it I may as well build a new system outright
Ryan R.
its not so old that you need to replace
but its at the point where its just past the minimum system specs for Fallout 4
AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz
is the minimum
k. Well, if it doesn't work I can always plug the graphics card into a new unit.
There's a 2000 watt psu in the box - so I don't think there's a graphics card out there that can overdraw that.
Ryan R.
i dont think ive ever seen a 2000W PSU haha
No kill like overkill :-)
Ryan R.
hahaha
i have like a 1100W and my TW load is like 850W
What would be a good card in the $300-$400 range?
Radeon, since that's what the system was built around.
Ryan R.
oh amd okay sec
It is a crossfire mb
Though I've never actually put two video cards in at once in any machine.
And fallout 4 will be comfortable with that?
Ryan R.
that would kill fallout 4
K. I'll add to cart. Last item I think I can get on my own - I'm putting a new drive in it. Thank you.
Ryan R.
np!
