    That's a good question. The 2GHz speed on the 2500k confuses me, too. Is that one of the default steps? I thought it was 1.6GHz, 3.3GHz, and then any of the turbo multipliers.

    Memory

    4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of system memory
    * Due to Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than 4 GB.
    Dual channel memory architecture
    Support for DDR3 2133/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules
    Support for non-ECC memory modules
    Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules
    You could put four sticks in there, doesn't mean it'd run in "quad channel".

    Most people make sure their CPU isn't at idle clocks when they take a CPU-Z validator snapshot. Most people.

    3 RAM sticks in a Sandy Bridge setup means your RAM is running in single channel mode. To my knowledge, 4GB dual channel is better than 6GB single channel.

    I see, is there any way to configure it to get better performance or just more money?

    Sandy Bridge only works in single or dual channel modes. So you can either remove one stick of RAM or add another to get it into dual channel mode.

    My rig is in the building process

    Specs:
    Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz
