ASUS P6X58D-Premium and Super Talent memory

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello.I am looking at a good deal on 24Gb of Super Talent DDR3 1600Mhz memory(WB160T12G9). These sticks are not listed in the ASUS manual as accepted memory. I know at times memory that is not listed will still work. I want to use this memory in a 3X4Gb configuration (12Gb per board total). I know this board can be a bit finicky with the larger memory configurations, even with its "mem OK" ability. I ask if anyone has had personal experience using the Super Talent memory like I plan to do? Thanks

My ASUS x58 boards have not been that finicky with ram, and I've run 4 sticks in a Sabertooth x58 with no issues (just follow the manual for 4 modules or it wont boot). it will flex and run the modules as efficient as possible. I even mixed ram. I ran 2x8Gb Mushkin and 2x8Gb G.Skill for a total of 32Gb ram.

I also tested "Patriot" branded ram on it, and the modules ran fine. I can't speak specifically for your ASUS board and Super Talent, but the ASUS X58 tend to be able to run similar ram configs across the line. I've run the P6T, P6T SE (with P6T bios cross-flashed), Rampage Formula, Rampage Extreme, X58 OC PALM, and Sabertooth X58. And from my experience, they took every memory config I through at them (just read the manual for dimm placement). As you can tell, I enjoyed the X58 platform!

Thanks Ericeod. I am so tempered to dip in my piggy bank and get this 24Gb of memory, even more so with your report. I have read a few reports that say the P6X58D-premium is problematic with 24gb installed and max speed is 1333 with 24Gb installed. I will stick with my 12gb tripple channel idea. The 6gb Corsair memory (3x2) in my sig rig works every time. About this particular board. Some say it (well all) x58 boards are overly complicated and not as reliable as they could be. Any comment on X58 reliability? I to like the X58 platform.+rep

I ran 6x4Gb on boards back in the day without issue, and found 8gb modules work, even though the chipset was never certified for it. I will say that I had issues running the ram beyond 1333 recently (I tinkered with X48 and Xeon until December 16), but I attribute that to the fact I was running Xeon X5679 (OEM Only CPU) and an X5680, which do not have IMCs capable of running high clocked ram. But I was able to run i7 980X and 970s with higher clocking ram. But that was with 4Gb modules across all dimm slots.

If it were me, I would give it a try. If it doesn't work, return the memory!
