P6X58D-E Motherboard RAM Recommendations Needed


fooglyboogly

Recommended Posts

I am currently looking to upgrade my RAM in a P6X58D-E motherboard with an i7 930. I'm looking to max out my motherboard's capability in size and quality, but the memory finder tool is leaving me confused. Currently, it shows the same motherboard with the following specs:

 

Details for Asus P6X58D-E

 

Maximum Memory » 32Gb

Expansion Slots » 4

CPU Socket Format » AM3+

Chipset » AMD 990FX

 

I believe this information to be incorrect as mine has six expansion slots and uses Intel CPUs. Can anyone assist in recommending some high-ish end Corsair memory upgrades for me? I am not currently looking to do any OC'ing because I'm currently inexperienced with it and am mostly interested in stability.

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it's incorrect. The maximum memory is 24GB and it obviously has an X58 chipset. http://www2.corsair.com/configurator/new_configurator_product_results.aspx?sc=&id=6109712 is correct and that board is almost identical.

 

You should really get a set of 6 matched DIMMs and I expect http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/vengeance-24gb-triple-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmz24gx3m6a1600c9 is what you need if you wish to get Corsair DIMMs.

 

I have an P6X58D Premium and have never found a way to run more than 24GB so suspect I will update it from 12GB to 24GB. Those DIMMs have Latency 9-9-9-24 @1600 MHz and I managed to find 4GB 8-8-8-24 @1600 MHz DIMMs that report their temperature.
