Mac Pro Late 2013 MemoryWhen using a new Mac Pro 2013, installing four matched memory modules will get you optimal performance. This allows the system to use quad-channel addressing, which is the most effective mode of operation.

That being said, in the real world – as with the 2009-2012 model Mac Pros which supported up to triple-channel addressing and even with the 2006-2008 models that REQUIRED matched pairs – more memory trumps multi-channel addressing where you have an application or applications running that make use of that memory.

Get Your Fill of Great Deals in November’s Garage Sale

Monday, November 11th, 2013 | Author:

globe-garage_saleIt’s finally November, and you know what that means. One extremely delicious day is the only thing on people’s minds: OWC Garage Sale day! OK…OK. Thanksgiving Day might be on your mind, too. But luckily, you can take advantage of both.

We’ve got a wide variety of products that are ready to move, and we have no doubt that we have something that’s perfect for you. So don’t leave any of these deals on the table, like you do with that jellied cranberry sauce (really… if that stuff was any good, people would eat it more than once a year).

Enjoy this month’s feast of deals!

As always, items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities, so you’ll want to act quickly. Quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.
