Basically, I recently upgraded to an Intel I7 980x and I need more RAM. I am having some problems with the one have got right now.
I am using an Asus P6T Deluxe v2 tri-channel and I had all the 6x slots with modules of 3x of 2GB and 3x of 1GB = 8GB but they were running at 1333 mhz for some reason and not at 1600 mhz as stated on the specs, if i set the RAM at 1600 mhz on the BIOS it will work but some times the computer will freeze or when starting it will say "overclock error" or something like that. solution? remove the 3x 1GB modules and placing the other 3x of 2GB on the right slots, no problem.
Now, I'm stuck with 6GB at 1600mhz and I need more, I don't mind if its clocked at 1600 or 2000 the maximum supported by the motherboard when doing overclocking.
I checked the "Qualified Vendors List" but find some of that RAM is kinda search for a needle in a haystack.
