ASUS P6X58D & 16GB vs 24GB Tags: Memory Asus DDR3 RAM Last response: January 6, 2013 7:34 PM in Memory Share josh5786 January 6, 2013 4:17:33 PM Hello, will my ASUS P6X58D Premium board support 2133mhz ram vs 2000mhz ram? The motherboard manual Qualified Vendors List only has ram listed at 2000mhz so I was wondering if I can go above that? I want to max out the ram to 24gb instead of 16gb. The 16gb are Kingston Hyper X Beast 2 x 8GB - 2133MHz, PC3-12800, DDR3, CL11. KHX21C11T3K2/16X. XMP TIMING PARAMETERS JEDEC: DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9 XMP Profile #1: D3-2133 CL11-12-11 XMP Profile #2: D3-1600 CL9-9-9 The 24gb are Corsair Vengeance - 6 x 4GB - 1600MHz, PC3-12800, DDR3, 9-9-9-24 at 1600mhz. XMPCMZ24GX3M6A1600C9. Should I stick with 2133mhz vs 1600mhz? I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 so it supports 192gb max ram I think.

So go for 24gB. You can go upto 2133MHz. Going from dual to triple channel gives you a significant speed boost. josh5786 January 6, 2013 7:34:51 PM Ok thanks ! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
