ASUS recently started sampling their Intel X58 Express based P6T Deluxe motherboard to partners and reviewers and it seems to have started a fire storm thanks to one little label on the board. With sites across the internet jumping on the band wagon in an attempt to get traffic by striking fear into enthusiasts we clear the air and tell things how it really is.
All of the memory companies we talked to informed me that they will have triple channel memory kits ready when the platform would launch, but none would give a specific date when this would happen. I also didn't find one company that hurt or ruined a processor by running higher than 1.65V on the memory kits, and a good number of the above memory companies said they are testing at voltages above 1.65V. What does this mean to enthusiasts and gamers around the world? It means that everything is fine and that these new triple channel memory kits are going to be the right choice for an Intel X58 Express platform.
