Supported for one DIMM per channel only?


Recommended Posts



About to bulid a new system with a asus Asus P7P55D Deluxe mb for a new i7 cpu. Was going to buy theres ram sticks

"Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL9"

But in the manuel it says the following

"Due to Intel spec definition, X. M. P. and DDR3-1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel only"


What does this mean? do i only get one channel insted of duel channel

or is it something else any help on this would be great

That means it only supports 2 sticks (dual channel mode) at 1600 MHz.


As long as the part number is listed here under "Dual Channel DDR3 Memory for Intel Core i7 8xx series processors", you'll be fine.



The cited URL lists CMD8GX3M4A1600C8 for the i7-8xx processor. Are you saying that these four sticks will work at their rated 1600 MHZ, CL8, on a ASUS P7P55D?
