    Default Re: asrock extreme

    Since the are 6 memory slots we will guess its an x58 extreme mbrd.

    Lacking any more details..

    Did you buy the memory modules as matched sets of 3 or not.

    If you didnt they may not work in triple channel format ,but just dual as you have now.

    Even if you did buy them in matched triplets it could be that a dram voltage boost is needed(a small one)

    First thing try 3 matched modules together and see if they are recognised properly (12GB)

    If that works ok try the 6 modules.

    If that doesnt work try the smallest dram voltage increase you can apply,then the next,dont go crazy on it.

    If that doesnt work try a mch/nortbridge v increase,just a couple of increments.
    Having 3 memory controllers working is more strain than just 2.

    If that doesnt work try loosening the memory timimgs.ie if they are 9-9-9-24 go for 10-9-9-24,no point in going much more than one digit or the benefit of triple channel would be outweighed by better dual channel timing..

    Finally u could try reducing the memory speed,but once again no point in going too far.

    Or you could use a combination of the above.

    Alot of this depends on whether you are already overclocking the mbrd or not.

    If you do get all 6 sticks working ,test them ,latency and bandwidth using something like AIDA 64 or sisoft sandra.
    Use memtest to see if the system is stable.

    Compare the results with having only 4 sticks working.

    Apparently there isnt a huge difference between double and triple channel.
    If you find the results are similar and you dont have a big need for more than 16GB you can allways sell the other 2 sticks orperhaps just keep 12gb and run those if that works for you.
