Asus P6X58D + G.SKILL Memory

Bought the Asus P6X58D and was looking through the Qualified Vendors List for the memory, and my purchased memory, the G.SKILL F3-12800CL8T-6GBRM was not on the list. The two closest were the F3-12800CL8T-6GBPI(XMP) and the F3-12800CL8T-6GBHK(XMP), but as far as I can tell, those are old sticks and are no longer in circulation.

Any insight?

Also, does XMP stand for eXtreme Memory Profiles?

  1. Both are CAS 8 DDR3 1600 for about $160.

    I'd move up to CAS 7 $189

    or if budget allows, CAS 6 ($240)

    I see both Extended memory profiles and Extreme memory profiles used but the latter is more prevalent.

    does this mean I cannot use my memory? Or will I have issues? Or "just to be safe"?
  3. Your memory should work... I don't know if they hold the memory profiles or not... to me it's not a big deal anyhow especailly with the voltage sensitivity I am more inclined to set a specific voltage and timing to avoid any potential frying of the memory controller.
  4. I have the same board and ASUS told me the only reason other stick arent on the QVL is because the manufacturer didnt send them those sticks to test.

    Basically the tech said as long as the frequency is what the MoBo says will work, it shouldnt give you any problem.
  5. ...but when we look at the QVL, it's a little confusing. For example, it says for a G.Skill DDR3-2000:

    Timing Lable(Bios)
    9-9-9-24(1066-8-8-8-20)

    ...which makes me think it doesn't work at the intended bus speed (it should be much higher than 1066)!! ...or is that just the maximum Asus very lazily tested it at?
