It is just when RAM is labeled as triple channel you can't fully utilize it due to the lack microarch in the Phenom II processors. they work excellent with dual channel memory the i7s work better with triple channel memory since they can fully utilize it and that is why those setups are faster sometimes. however, the difference is minimal you won't see the difference between dual channel and triple channel memory unless the computer is used for heavy calculations and simulations you can't see it in gaming and multitasking 1333 and 1600 DDR3 RAM will work fine with the phenom II just remember to overclock the processor so that they synchronize Share rockinthepe January 14, 2010 12:26:54 AM suggested voltage or timings? m 0 l Related resources WANTED- amd- am3 motherboard and ddr3 memory - Forum AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor with 1333 memory type DDR3 Ram - Forum Will am3 motherboards run ddr3 Quad Channel Kit memory - Forum ASUS M4A78LT-M LE AM3 DDR3 4gb memory issue - Forum Phenom 2 AM3 DDR3 memory problem found... - Forum Can't find your answer ?
