Hi All.

Been away for quite awhile. Haven't worked on my gaming machine for a long time (it's been sitting under a cover for well over a year). My current setup runs 3 X 4GB sticks of DDR3 memory in triple channel. Now that I'm back, I've noted that most of the latest high performance motherboards run DDR3 memory but are configured to run it in dual channel mode. Why the change in direction? I want to update my machine but I'd like to understand the reasoning behind this apparent change in preferred memory setups.

Thanks in advance for any and all help rendered.
