How much RAM can I add? I saw Apple offering 64G, but also saw OCW offering 128G - is the CPU/MMU able to really handle this?

Using Intel ARK to compare here is what they can support!

For the 4 Core CPU Supports: 256 GB

For the 6 Core CPU Supports: 256 GB

For the 8 Core CPU Supports: 768 GB

For the 12 Core CPU Supports: 768 GB

See: http://ark.intel.com/compare/75779,75780...

I would add this to the previous reply : what can you do with 768GB RAM that your 64/128GB mac can't handle ?

If I am only installing two sticks of ram, does anyone have a suggestion for what slots I should install them into? Thanks for yet another great guide! -George

I have the same question and can't find an answer online. Apple doesn't ship them with less than 3 populated.
