Asus P6T Deluxe V1 memory compatibility question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm in a little problem here. I currently have 6GB of ram in my sig rig (in a kit of 3x2GB) but I need double of that capacity since I do a lot of video encoding and rendering as well as Photoshop and other paint programs such as Corel Painter 12.

I'm currently looking at buying a kit of 12GB (3x4GB) of ram but since I have an old motherboard (BIOS is updated to ver.2101), I'm afraid that 4GB DIMMs are not compatible. The manual says that it only supports a maximum of 12GB of memory with all slots populated but at the Asus website, it says a maximum of 24GB.

Who's right and who's wrong?

BTW the Asus P6T Deluxe V1 is the one with SAS ports. The V2 hasn't got SAS ports.

And what brand of memory would you recommend me?

Your manual should have a revision number. Compare that to the one listed on the Asus website. But I'm 99.9% sure a 12GB kit (3x4GB) will work on that board.

As for which brand, it comes down to which one you prefer. I personally like Mushkin, G.Skill, or Corsair (if they're on sale).

I checked and the manual is the same as the one that is on the Asus website.
"E 4262. Third Edition (V3). October 2008". But since you are confident that it will work. I will take your words and I will try buying one.
My money is set on these.

Were you able to upgrade your memory to 12 GB. I'm looking to do this myself since I have the same board.
