TR3X6G1600C8D 12 GB Setup Help


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I am new here at the Corsair forums but experienced with Corsair technology. However, I am new for what I want to do this time around with my most recent build. I do not have any experience in manual over clocking, only Windows GUI over clocking software which is probably nothing to boast about.


Here is my build:


(1) ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard



(1) Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz CPU



(2 Kits) CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600



I have been researching around for the past couple of days (read enough sticky's to last me a life time) and never found a definitive answer. I wanted to go over the edge with this build so I can be somewhat future proof because I am going into Air Force basic training in a couple of months. I wanted to be able to come back after basic training and find that my computer would still be good with the times. This is my first time in a long time working with Intel as I have just acquired the funds to build one so I am a little out of the loop and unfamiliar with an Intel based board's BIOS. Here is what I want to do. I want to be able to run this RAM stable at 12GB with the above setup. What would I have to do to make this possible? Or, is it even possible? Thanks in advance for your patience with me on this.


Quick edit: None of this has been purchased yet. Should I switch to Dominator GT DDR3 Triple Channel or just stick with this?

I have the same memory and its plenty of data bandwidth.


As far as 12GB stable, a friend of mine told me on his Rampage II Extreme that it was not stable using XMP settings. However, when he set it to manually it ran fine. Given you have an Asus board you should be fine since the RIIE is built by Asus as well. Good luck!
