I love GSKILL memory. I want to upgrade my memory to 1600MHz chips, so how does this look?

I do a lot of Photoshop and image editing, and I'm really pushing the 6GB I've got right now. What about these? I'll be at 12GB and 1600. One thing that concerns me is the specs on my motherboard says that 1600 RAM is "one DIMM per channel", not sure what that means....can I still run 3 x 4GB for a total of 12GB? The mobo won't underclock the RAM because of that limitation, will it?

You can use 3x4gb without effecting the oc. Most cpu can handle 1 dual(AMD & some Intel) or 1 triple channel (Intel) setup without effecting ocing.

Yeah, no doubt, I checked the details on the motherboard and it actually supports up to 24GB, but I'll stick with 12 for now. thanks

Your current memory should do 1600 CL9, just get another 6gb of the same. No sense in changing out 1333MHz memory for 1600 really as you won't notice any bit of difference.
