    ASUS P6T Delux V2; Ram Channels

    I know this may be a topic for the Ram section, but no one has given an answer that uses this P6T board. On this particular board there is a note in the manual that says:

    "Due to INTEL spec definition, X.M.P. DIMMS and DDR3- 1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel only"

    what does this mean specifically? is it for XMP OC's or OC's with DDR3-1600mhz ram? I interpolate this as if i was to put "6gigs of Corsair DDR3-1600mHz" (or any 1600mhz) ram then it could only be 2 gig sticks in channels A1, B1 and C1. However, if i wanted 12 gigs of ram, how would it work since i could only place one DDR3-1600 per channel to get?

    or am i just not comprehending my reading? I am a newbie to the deeper fundamentals of the inter-workings of computer "tuning" and OC'ing.
    Current setup: Surface Pro 2

    Underneath that statement in the manual, it says...
    According to Intel spec definition, DDR3-1600MHz is supported for one DIMM per one channel only. ASUS exclusively provides two DDR3-1600 DIMM support for each memory channel
    Then below that under the QVL for DDR3-1600MHz compatibility, it lists...
    Code:
    Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D (XMP) 6GB (kit of 3) DS 8-8-8-24 1.65v
    ... and also 6GB of the C9 version (also XMP) at 9-9-9-24, also DS (double-sided). As far as running 12GB, it looks to me as though you'd be limited to DDR3-1333MHz.

    are you asking whether that means 2x1600 + 1x1333 per channel? Is a channel 3 RAM sticks in the say yellow/green/whatever colour depending on board?

    So are you asking would all the RAM in a channel run at 1333?

    I know next to nothing so forgive me if this makes no sense.
