Should I go with the asus p6x58d-e or premium? I read about the minor difference in the first post in the thread but idk if anything has changed.

My main concerns are:
1.Quality and longevity of the board - Would like to keep the board for 4-5 years
2.Performance - overclocking while staying cool and stable
3.Easey use - need whichever one has the most easy install easy wires install and easy to use overall software and features. Basically whichever on makes life easier for you overall, both for the physical install and daily use and overclocking.
When overclocking theres no telling how long a board will last, even without overclocking u cant tell. But assuming it wont burn,fry,explode,freeze or whatever people manage to do to their boards its most likely a future proof board with the new 1336 socket thatll prolly last a few generations of cpu's
As for overclocking, despite me being new to overclocking i defenitly found it easy to overclock using provided settings, but ofc it required some learning. Also my mobo keeps an average low temp of ~30 degrees according to some hardware monitors during oc's
As for ease of use / installation, no clue I didnt want to risk any mistakes for that which i had to sell my liver and left lung since it would be the second time id build a comp and I dont have the req. tools yet to do so.
But ease of instalation also depends on your demands and the case your installing it into so I guess its hard to tell overall.

But ye hope this helps

Thanks for reply.
I'll be using a cooler master storm sniper case. And I will overclock first without any voltage changes and then overclock more in like a year when I feel I need more juice.

Well you need to change the voltages to overclock. That's the nature of the beast. You can't raise the speed without giving it more juice to support it.

I want a total of 12GB memory.
Yes! I just bought the Corsair Dominator 12GB (3 x 4GB) CMP12GX3M3A1600C9 and they work perfectly on this Mobo. I like having the 12 GB in 3 sticks instead of 6 because there is less to go wrong and there is more room for cooling between the sticks. Worked perfectly out of the box. I didn't use the fan they included with it because I heard it was unshielded and caused interference with the RAM. Not sure if that's true or not, but the RAM seems perfectly happy without it. Saw all 12 GB on first bootup and been working perfectly every since.

Got it, thanks lawrencedlw.

Wow nice Gorn!
Btw, what is the best low profile ram for the asus p6x58d premium? I think the corsair h70 push/pull setup might be a factor, but not sure. Good to know the best ram for this board regardless. Need good ones so I can get to 4.0ghz or more with no troubles.

I heard the regular mushkins are good and a lot of people swear by the mushkin redlines. But I need to know what works best for this board specifically.

You won't need low profile RAM for the H70. I just snapped a picture inside my completed build and you can see that the RAM has enough space to play tennis.

I really like the massive heavy heatsinks on the Dominators - helps them run cool and makes them look awesome.

Awesome! Thanks a ton for the great pic.
Do you run the h70 in exhaust or intake? How does the h70 effect all the heatsink temps on the asus p6x58d premium board?
Is that ram overclocking well with that board?

You can't go wrong with anything with the corsair name on it (well anything made for i7's that is lol tripple channel) and G.Skill trident is also some good ram and you can get a 6GB kit of DDR3 2000 ram for under $200. I got 2X6GB (3 X 2GB) kit's of Corsairs XMS3 DDR3 2000 9-9-9-24 ram ( Part Number: CMX6GX3M3A2000C9) and I had a little problem at first with one stick out of the 6 (2 kits) was flashed with the wrong SPD but corsair took care of me fast (in fact don't tell anyone but they sent me 2 kits back in stead of 1 by accident so SHHHH I have an extra 6GB kit for free ($200 kit). So you can't beat Corsair for service and just solid products. I'm not saying that there aren't better out there, I'm just saying that If I have had a good experience with Corsair in the past then there is no reason to go elsewhere for me anyways. Shop around and see what is on sale and google it to find reviews and if you have 5 or so reviews that you read that are good then why not as long as the ram doesn't cause clearance issues for you but your going with the H70 aren't you? So you won't have any ram clearance issues with that cooler at all lol. Good luck and hope that you get some good quality ram and get that system together.

In fact most people here use Corsair icm with the i7 and this board and it works flawless. I myself bought a 6x2Gb kit dominator 1600mhz including a ram cooler probably dont even need it but looks cool so yea. I too recommend it

I run the H70 in exhaust. Idle temps while I am typing this right now in a 21C room are 23C, 17C, 22C, 20C, 27C, 20C. Isn't that outrageous? I actually have cores cooler than ambient with the H70. And I have another significant heat creator in there - a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 480 AMP that does not exhaust the heat of the 480 outside the case - it has a huge heatsink on top of it with fans that exhaust the heat directly into the case. Keeps the 480 cool and lets it go fast but adds heat to the case. However, with the HAF X case, the air is moving through it at a pretty good clip, so this doesn't appear to matter and everything stays cool. I'm not sure how to check the heatsink temps on the board, but the HAF X puts so much air through the box that I'd be surprised if they are even warm.

I haven't tried OCing yet - I usually prefer to run all hardware within its bounds, which is why I have computers that last a bazillion years. I can tell you that xmisery was very helpful when I was researching this RAM and provided this post which helped me research it further. In it he summarizes a German review as stating that the RAM is capable of :

[with] 10-10-10-24 with 10-10-10-24 (Not safe at this voltage for long periods of time)
Again, the reason I went with 3 sticks of 4 GB instead of 6 sticks of 2 GB is reliability (fewer parts), cooling and the ability to go to 24 GB in the future. And the biggest of those reasons was reliability.
