    Windows 8 Developer Preview


    I have 12GB@1333Mhz in the Developer Preview, I was thinking about going up to 16GB but i already got a 7.9 for RAM score.
    I will test this on my system, I'll have to hijack another 8GB kit from work and see how it goes.

    And it boots OK with Win8 8102?
    That was the real purpose of this thread Pooch started.

    Yes I had no trouble booting into Windows 8, must just be my particular hardware configuration which is listed in my system specs.

    Nice. Doesn't help Pooch much, however.

    Thanks for sharing as did I.

    Still, seeing as how it's the 16GB barrier Pooch seems to be dealing with, as has been re-established, anything to offer?

    I wish I could help, Pooch.

    Thanks you all already have its obvious that I have gone OTT with my RAM lmao
    On a brighter note I had a lot more problems with my drives, but now that that is solved Windows 8 is running really nicely
