I am running 6*2GB KHX2000C9D3T1K3/6GX at 1656 with no problems.

The memory I'm looking at is:
OCZ's OCZ3X1600LV6GK 6gb ddr3 (I know I will have to buy two of these sets to make it 12GB, the "verified memory" .pdf from the Gigabyte website on the GA-X58A-UD7 said this particular memory could be dual channeled and then tripled channeled for "6 sticks".

But the specs on Gigabyte's site shows no mention of 1600 Mhz. just 2000/1333/1066 etc. but this contradicts the verified memory list which shows a bunch 1600 Mhz

The rest of the config:

case: corsair 800 D

motherboardGA-x58a- UD7

graphics: Ati Radeon 5970

cpu: I7 930 cpu

power: 1000 watt corsair


So I guess my question is: is there a problem getting 1600 Mhz memory to work dual channel in a triple channel set for 6 sticks making it work as 12GB?
Or for 1600Mhz, only 3 sticks allowed one in each of the 3 dual channel slots?

Thanks for any info,
Frank
2GB OCZ OCZ3X1600LV6GK DS v 6PCS This is from the Memory Support List directly from Gigabyte's website. 6 pieces of 2GB OCZ OCZ3X1600LV6GK = 12GBs is supported.

Hi,

Just a heads up, that dispite being listed as supported, when you fill all 6 slots with this stuff, it doesn't work. Had to switch out the RAM. Ended up with 6 x 2GB Cosair XMS3 TR36G13339 DDR3-1333, which is working fine.

Hi,

So very new to OC. I've played a little. Seems I can easily use the Easytune6 to get to 4. Had trouble trying to get my Diamond HD 5970 OC'd.

Any suggestions?

Hi Thanks for the quick replies. MacG32 and sparkle128.
MacG32, yes, I saw that on the list too. Am worried about conflicting results reported. Thanks though.

sparkle128, so you have 12GB running at 1333Mhz. But have heard of 12GB runnin gat 1600Mhz? or does it look like only 6GB is possible at 1600Mhz and above?

Sorry , don't have easytune or diamond 5970.

Thanks.

Corsair and Kingston seem to have the least amount of issues with all motherboards. Thanks for the heads up!

You could flash your 5970 with an Asus bios, which gives you an option to tweak the voltage.

Have you purchased your memory yet? If not, I would suggest Corsair for overclocking and Kingston for not and/or maxing your board.

Alrighty then...well as some may know I hit the 4.0 mark a couple of days ago but, I was unable to truly stress it until today with Prime95. At first I was confident about my temps as they never hit above 69C while running Intel Burn but, when I started running Prime today I noticed that my 2nd core crapped out rather quickly. Everything I have read points to adding volts to the vcore and I would like to see what everybody here thinks.


My CPUZ reads the vcore 1.20V @ idle and 1.18V-1.16V @ load
My BIOS reads the vcare 1.22V @ boot.

Advanced CPU Features:
CPU Clock Ratio ................................ [21]

Hi... I think its just a G.SKILL issue. I originally had planned to use 6x2GB Cosair 2200 RAM as per my research on the best to get, but ended up going for cheaper. A few tech sales guys said that the higher speed ram is really only seen in lab tests and the benefit for the real world isn't worth it. Thus I assume anything over the minimum speed up to 2200 I think should be fine.
