Nah, not something all that dumb. Just the difference between dual and triple channel memory. The x58 is triple channel, thus three modules. SB, and p67 is dual, so you want to pair them up. Either 2 or 4 modules, otherwise you will be running in single channel mode.

If you realy want 6gb ram, you would want to go with 2x2 and 2x1, but then why not go with 8gb at either 2x4 or 4x2, but really, unless you are doing things that are really ram intensive, 4gb should be plenty for now, especially if you mainly game, and you can always add two more modules later if you need.

Can't answer for him, but in my case, most of the time, I run my ram at 1600 6-6-6-18 at 1.61 V. This uses much less energy (about 50-60W less, idle) than running it at 2000 8-8-8-24 @ 1.66V, so I only set it at the higher speed when I need it.

THANK YOU , that was an analysis , I wasn't sure about the DUAL Single channel, thing , you cleared it up.

Now just choosing the right 1600's ... Still i'm not sure how previous user explained that he bought faster RAM but then down sped them , what the reason for that would be? I guess it's just an overclocking result when tweaking the DRAM speeds to obtain perfect stability...
