Solved Looking for some RAM for an Asus P6X58D-E Tags: Memory Asus Gaming RAM Last response: September 18, 2012 3:39 AM in Memory Share Jpeppa September 12, 2012 9:42:19 PM So I've been doing a lot of research and have come down to a few options, I'm hoping to get some opinions: 12gb: http://www.frys.com/product/6754235?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN... http://www.frys.com/product/6934597?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN... http://www.frys.com/product/6406992?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN... Or should I just go for the full boat and grab 24gb: http://www.frys.com/product/6742155?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN... I've done a lot of searching around about those "Gaming" sticks, and most people say it's just for show or bling... Thanks in advanced!

I got 8 installed and never come close to using it all, lol. If you don't plan on overclocking, most decent brand RAM is the same. Jpeppa September 12, 2012 10:05:37 PM Sorry, I should have mentioned that... I do plan on overclocking, also I have heard that it's a bit harder to maintain OC with large amounts of RAM.

Just more chances to have a less stable chip in the mix. ko888 a b } Memory a b Ĉ ASUS a b 4 Gaming September 17, 2012 6:17:08 PM Jpeppa said:Sorry, I should have mentioned that...

More memory modules presents a higher electrical load on the memory bus with some degradation in the digital signal quality which can result in less stability.

While 'faster' RAM on LGA 1366 helps +2FPS~+8FPS (PV7312G2000ELK) you MUST OC the BCLK to 160MHz to keep them stable. Jpeppa September 18, 2012 3:39:43 AM Best answer selected by Jpeppa.
