question about setting 4 sticks ram for triple channel motherboard

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Please help me to set up the best performance for my computer

First, I have the ASUS P6X58D-E LGA Intel X58 Intel Motherboard that support triple channel memory. Then, I bought 1 set of triple channel G.skill Ripjaws Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Cas Latency 9 Timing 9-9-9-27-2N Voltage 1.6V

and 1 set of dual channel OCZ Reaper 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Cas Latency 9 Timing 9-9-9-30 Voltage 1.65V dual channel. So totally I have 5 sticks of ram.

However, 1 stick of G.skill ram is defective. and I already returned that ram for replacement. It will take 2 months for me to receive a new one(since I'm oversea).

While waiting for the replacement, I really want to use 4 sticks of working ram for my computer. so how do i setup these rams to achieve the best performance of my computer? . (I presume to runs at 1600mhz instead of 2000mhz), my motherboard has A1/B1/C1 and A2/B2/C2 RAM SLOT.

After that when I received the replacement, how do I change the setting of 5 sticks ram to achieve the best performance. (I really don't want to spend more money for the extra ram to full up 6 lots)

Please help me in detail for the setting because I'm not really good on this.
I'm really appreciated for any helps, forgive me for my bad Computer skill.
thanks

This seems to be an interesting paragraph when it comes to your mobo :

Quote:
Heading north from our previous location we find the area of the board that is populated by memory slots. In particular, this board has six 240-pin DDR3 slots rated to accept 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB modules rated anywhere from 1066MHz up to 2000MHz. The system is capable of triple channel operation, which requires 3, 4 or 6 modules to be installed. If you are running with a traditional triple channel setup of three modules, you need to use the blue slots, and save the black slots for when/if you ever add more modules.





According to that paragraph, you are advised to use the blue slots when you are running a traditional tri-channel setup. I would assume that in your case, running 3 black and 1 blue would work or running 3 blue and 1 black. I could be wrong, you can alaways check and get back to us.
