Not 100% sure to be honest, the diagram suggests it would work fine, however that quote is confusing
I assume there's 3 channels (A,B and C) and that if you were to put 1600Mhz DDR3 DIMMS in Channel A (as the diagram suggests) using A1 and A2 then the PC wouldn't boot?
Indeed, the manual is confusing when it comes to this. I think it might be talking about the instance of having only having 2 DIMMs being put into one channel as opposed to spreading it out to the other channels.
I went into my BIOS and it seems that the current settings are set at 1033Mhz. Since I am currently not operating at 1600Mhz, I think it might be okay? I'll have to figure out how to boost the performance.
Yeah when I built my X58 system my motherboard set my 1333mhz RAM to 1066 or something like that, it also set the DRAM Voltage to 1.50V when my RAM is rated at 1.65V
You'll have to set your memory multiplyer to its correct value, also make sure your RAM is running at its rated latency timings and voltage.
