ASUS P6T Deluxe LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard Memory Question

Recommended Posts

Exploring the impact of memory speed on Core i7 performance.

Unless you're going to push the base clock, which requires some cooperation from your motherboard, the 920 is essentially limited to DDR3-1066. At that speed, DIMMs with 7-7-7-20 timings are actually quite affordable and widely available, so there's really no need to settle for budget modules with looser timings. Our testing shows that you can even get away with a dual-channel config if you happen to already have a couple of DDR3 DIMMs lying around. I wouldn't skimp on that third memory module if I were building a Core i7 system from scratch, though.

Are you planing to overclock at all?
