This is my first post here - I tried to find info on the net about whether I could run 48gb on the p6t sas deluxe v1 mainboard, and only one japanese page with a cpu-z screenshot came up.
A couple of weeks ago I bought 3x8gb by mistake (should have been 6x4gb) to max out the supported 24gb. I found out that the 3x8gb worked without a hitch, and out of curiosity bought three more modules.
I hereby confirm it works, and have been running a completely stable system for a week now (in case anyone else is interested in running this much memory on an aging p6t mainboard ;-)
- Windows 7 pro 64bit
- Asus P6T Deluxe SAS v1
- i7 920 @ 3.6ghz
- 6x8gb CL9-9-9-24 DDR3-1333 triple channel (six 8gb modules G.SKILL RipjawsX F3-10666CL95-8gbxl)
- ATI 5870 1gb
- Revodrive3 X2 240gb
- 3 hdd's total 2tb
- e-mu 1820 sound card
...and in case someone wondering about why I require that much ram (or at least 24gb): I am embarking on a virtual heritage 3d visualization project which is extremely complex, and, after some initial testing, it will require about 20~24gb to render. And with the modules at a mere can$70 a piece... I decided to max it out, just in case I will require a little bit more.
