Memory upgrade X58


Recommended Posts

Hi, I got 2 old DD3 corsair memory kit module, one is 4x4 1600cl and other is 2x2 1600cl (don't remember right denomination) and I've tried to upgrade my x58 board.


Depending on which slot I've installed oldest kit 2x2 and with no manual bios adjust I've these result:

System boot at 1600 single channel or triple channel 1066.

I've tried also a middle way forcing bios running memory at 1333 but system halted.

I think 1600 is the best solution even if it's use a sigle channel.


I'm right? What you think/suggestions ?

Thanks for your replay.


Here's what I got:


MSI X58 Pro-E (MS-7522)


CM3X2G1600C9DHX and CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9


Intel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz


Which is the best configuration?

I was hoping enabling triple channel at 1600 cause both memory kit are 1600 and C9.


Thanks again for your time.
