My main board is an ASUS P6-T.
CPU is Intel i7 920
Memory is Kingston KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX (kit of 3 X 2GB, total 6GB) 1600 MHz, PC 12.800
I populated the 3 red slots, leaving the 3 black slots unused (as per the manual).
During boot-up, the only information POST shows about memory is:
So, there is no mention about operation on Triple Channel (my previous ASUS boards always showed “dual channel”, etc.)
- How can I verify if I got triple channel or not?
- Why is it showing 1066 instead of 1600?
Tripple channel is controlled by the motherboard chipset. Just fill 3 or 6 ram slots with the same brand and speed of ddr3 and you'll be running in tripple channel. 1066 is the default speed of the ram. If you want to run higher, try setting it manually, or overclock the cpu using the memory ratios (dividers). For my board, I use 240 fsb for the cpu (20% higher than default) and manually set the ram divider at 1:1.66. With the right divider, my ram stays at 800 speed. I use pc6400 ddr2.
