Hi!

I have P6T SE mainboard and want to put 24 GB (6 x 4 GB) of RAM on it...

The "compatible vendor list" on ASUS website is out of date (late 2009 year). There are many newer RAM modules on the market not listed on this late 2009 spec.

What types of RAMs, what models/brands memory can I put into this MOBO?

I was thinking about six 4GB modules, 1333 MHz, and with CL9 latency. But I want to be sure that what I buy will be compatible with this MOBO.


Thanks for advice!

KLOCK

Here are a couple of lists for you.
There seems to be some lack of clarity in both Kingston and Crucial as to whether you have triple channel or dual channel.  I have no idea why, but you can decide if you have six slots or just four and choose accordingly...

http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/modelsinfo.asp?SysID=56781&mfr=ASUS%2FASmobile&model=P6+Motherboard+P6T+SE&search_type=&root=us&LinkBack=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kingston.com&Sys=56781-ASUS%2FASmobile-P6+Motherboard+P6T+SE&distributor=0&submit1=Search

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=P6T%20SE&Cat=RAM

If you have dual channel it would be better to either find a set of four that came matched from the factory as one set, or simply opt for one set that is closer to your target.  Better to get 12 gigs that work flawlessly than a couple of sets that total 24 but do not play nice with each other.  To be honest, even with "only" 12 gigs I think you would have a hard time getting up to 50% RAM usage anyway. 

Let us know how you make out, ok?

It's ok to try to reinvent the wheel, but just make sure it's round, OK? LOL

i bought another kit of 3 * 2 GB of Ram but the computer only recognizes 8 GB. Well its only showing 8 GB. Why is that? shouldn't it show up as 12 GB?

Hi Paul,

Which RAM did you have and which RAM did you buy?

Hopefully they are the exact same part number, revision and specification. However, even if they are, this is no guarantee that they will work together properly as they have not been tested together to work as a triple channel kit.

Please test the new kit on its own in slots A1, B1 and C1 and make sure that you see all 6Gb first.

Also what is your DRAM Bus Voltage set to?

Just incase anyone else reads this thread, I wanted to let those note who are upgrading Ram to make sure your operating system supports it. As I know of Windows 7 32 bit only supports up to 4 gigs of ram, while 64 bit up to 16 gigs, and I notice as for premium editions (like ultimate) cap is much higher. Something to look into before you upgrade your system.
