About "DDR3-1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel"

"DDR3-1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel."

I have 3 sticks of DDR3 1600 4gb.

So, to get more of an understanding of this rule since the ASUS manual is vague about it, can I underclock the 1600 RAM and run it triple channel? If I overclock the system (CPU?), I heard motherboards that this design applies to, like Sabertooth X58 or P7P55D Deluxe, will use 1600 ram as normal. Does "normally" mean the 3 sticks of DDR3-1600 RAM are running triple channel at 1600?

Am I way off, or am I understanding it correctly?

Cool to hear.

Yeah, I'm nearly done with building my computer. I didnt want to risk a I7 980, but it still looks impressive. :p 
The forum has helped me greatly and I can't wait to finally plug the PSU in.
