x58A-UD3R mushkin RAM

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a x58A-UD3R (rev 2 I believe) with 12GB of Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 998681 running an intel i7 980x.

I have spent the last few days searching online about some understanding for clocking my RAM at 1600. I've fiddle with the bios but am never sure what I set it too has actually been accepted and working, mainly setting it from 1333 to 1600.

I have read one thread in particular suggesting that mushkin ram is a good ram to go with. I am mainly using my pc as a DAW.

I guess one of the questions I have is, what is the highest most stable speed my mobo can accomplish with a certain type of RAM out there? That question has allude me so far because on Gigabyte's ram compatibility list http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_ga-x58a-ud3r_v2.0.pdf I see that my mobo works with RAM with clocking speed of up to 2100. So if that's true, why would I settle with 1600?

If for some reason 1600 my only option, is there a guide or steps I can take to assure that my memory is at 1600, I will worry about clocking my cpu at 4Ghz later, though I've accomplished this already with Quick Boost.

The RAM you currently have is already running at 1600mhz, unless you somehow under clocked it. Overclocking ram from 1600mhz to 2100mhz is next to impossible to do, so if you want speeds like that you'd have to buy RAM modules that are rated/running at 2100mhz. Not that you'd see a drastic performance increase anyways.
