    Well it will make a difference for sure, if the memory can't do it then it isn't very good IMO :)

    Getting 8-10GB with spec settings only means you need to find the right QPI/Vtt amount, this could be more or less than you are trying, more isn't always the fix.

    Try these and see if you can get things going

    it will set dramv & qpi votage for you

    XMP is not suggested at all, the XMP would be programmed for one kit not two, and there is no way it can guess the QPI/Vtt your particular CPU needs to run 12GB at spec

    Thanks for the setting suggestions...

    However, when I tried them, I could not get the machine to POST without rebooting. At one point while trying to get the machine to boot into the bios settings, the BIOS got corrupted and I had to reload version F6k.

    I was able to get 12GB to show up during POST with most of your suggested settings, but I had to have the voltages back to where I was originally. The only problem as that with the RAM at 8-8-8-24-1T, even if 12GB showed at post, Windows would BSOD immediately when trying to boot. I got error codes 74 and 50.

    I got scared at that point and just went back to my old settings.

    One thing I realized is that on the TigerDirect website, the memory I bought says it's 8-8-8-24 and gives no other timings, however, at NewEgg, the same part number says it's 9-9-9-24 and some reviews say the RAM is 2T. Other retailers also say 9-9-9-24.

    Nevermind, even the Corsair website says it's 9-9-9-24. I guess that's why I can't get it to work with 8-8-8-24!

    I should have realized before. Shame on TigerDirect for false advertising...

    So I guess my stable settings at 9-9-9-24 are within specs and it has been running stable.

    Thanks for all your help.

    you wont notice any difference from 8-8-8-24 to 9-9-9-24 anyway so as long as its working and you have 12gb i would settle at that,why increase qpi/vtt just for cas8 timings? not worth it imo

    XMP is not suggested at all, the XMP would be programmed for one kit not two
    he is useing one 12GB kit not 2 6gb kits
    XMP is not suggested? may i ask why you say that XMP are the spec programed in by the memory manufacture

    i have a 12 gb kit and yes it set ram to 1600 and dram voltage to 1.65 and QPI to 1.35v all i did was set XMP to profile1

    if he was not useing a matching set of ram i would agree with you
    also if he was trying some big over clock i would agree as well

    Try new corsair Vengeance , operates at 1.5V hence add a few mV for O/C galore
    its 1600 99924 at 1.5
    My UD3R r1.0 needs 1.54 V for stock operation, but thats a 3 x4GB (12GB) mammoth there

    Judge, I suggest against XMP as a personal preference, it had nothing to do with his kit or how many he was using.

    Even so though, if a kit XMP is designed for 12GB, there is still no way those settings could guess how much QPI/Vtt his particular CPU needs for 12GB at the given speed or timings, neither could the board using Auto.
