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.

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

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.Motherboard - Asus P6T Deluxe v2
