I'm just getting ready to start my build on new PC. I started with on of the pre-made lists from this site and made minor modifications.
In readying the motherboard manual, I noticed mention of a couple of things that concerned me - not sure about the implication:
1) Due to intel spec definition, X.M.P DIMMS and DDR3-1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel only.
(I purchased 2 sets of 3xDDR1600 DIM to install - does the above mean I can't do this? I checked comments on internet and found mixed messages)
2) For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full memory load (6 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.
(Does this mean that I will need to install an additional memory cooler if I install all 6 slots of memory? Is it required? Again, I found mixed info on other sources.)
Would appreciate any of your experiences.
