I have a ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard and CORSAIR DOMINATOR 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory.
How do I change the 12gb into 24? possible?

You can do it, you will need 6*4GB DDR3 modules however. WTH DO YOU NEED 24GB!?!?!?

^ You wouldn't be using a "gaming" class board if doing that kind of work....you'd be using a 2P at least then.

Simple answer, NO - I have the exact dominator DDR3 RAM chips - 6x2 = 12 GB. These chips cannot be converted from 2 GB to 3 GB each.
Please evaluate the cost of the 3GB RAM chips versus the present 2 GB RAM chips that you have. The switch may not be cost effective.

+1 to shadow703793, you can do it, but need buy 6x4GB kit like this, but I think that you can build another rig with the same price.

Or buy two kits like this, but again, U can build another rig with the price of the two kits.

So, IMO you don't need 24GB at least that you don't know in that spend your money

^Exactly! This is why it is usually cost effective to go with a server board which have 12 DIMMs (6 DIMMs per CPU) like this: http://bit.ly/4SVo7A if you need an insane amount of RAM.

lol, not anymore. At first I thought is was some sort of virtual thing. Then I realized that I had an idiotic thought. I then went outside and took my daily ride on the short-bus. I'm not quite to noobville yet. Pardon the interruption.
