    Good question.

    It is only dual channel, but if you have 6 sticks, apparently you can run all 6 in dual channel mode. That way you can still use a bunch of ram, just like an x58 system :)

    Yep, it lets you run 12 GB with 2 GB sticks (much cheaper than 3 GB or larger sticks).

    nice. I'll be getting my i5 tonight! :D

    now i just need a board. I'm just busy today or else I would be collecting the board today. :D

    it's still dual channel.

    unlike the UD3 / UD4 where you have 2 DIMM per channel, the UD6 has 3 DIMM per channel.

    I did some air testing and updated the second post. Overclocking on this board is effortless, though I am limited by my RAM. I'm ordering some new sticks tonight :)

    I'm thinking of grabbing some 2000mhz G.Skill ripjaws, but I kinda want the black 2000mhz Mushkins.


    I should be able to go a tad lower on the vcore I think :toast:

    Both are really good sets... Me, i'm a G.skill lover.. But the Mushkins are, from word of mouth, a great set to come out.. Even their 1600mhz set up

    I ordered the PC16000 Ripjaws last night, they'll be here Tuesday since Newegg doesn't ship on Saturdays :toast:








    Starting on some 3d air testing in a few minutes, here's a couple pics of my setup.

    damn.. these benches are really making me sell my 955 and go with another intel set... Can't wait to see how the Gskills do in this system... when just that little oc to 3.2ghz gives you a 13s 1m pI... Even on those sticks!

    Very nice benches man, and love the look of the set up. :toast:

    Looks like i5 loves GPUs. Impressive scores.
    :toast:

    24 phases of power sounds crazy. :D

    Maby it's the MB pumping up your GPU.


    Hope your PSU is up for this mission. I want to see you go 5GHZ. :rockout:
