Hi I have the following spec:

ASUSTeK Computer INC. P6T SE (LGA1366)
Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07GHz
I upgraded from 3 x DDR3-1600g from adata
to 6 x 4gb patriot viper 3 series DDR3-1600.

When I had all 6 in I was running into super long boot times, cpu and temp problems:

RAM Memory slots: Total memory slots 6 Used memory slots 6 Free memory slots 0 Memory Type: DDR3 Size 24576 MBytes Channels # Triple DRAM Frequency 534.5 MHz CAS# Latency (CL) 8 clocks RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD) 8 clocks RAS# Precharge (tRP) 8 clocks Cycle Time (tRAS) 20 clocks Command Rate (CR) 2T Physical Memory Memory Usage 10 % Total Physical 24 GB Available Physical 21 GB Total Virtual 28 GB Available Virtual 25 GB


I reduced to 3 x 4gb and my computer works great at about 51 C. According to the docs my mobo should support 24gb when I have all 6 in the boot time is long and the computer is slow, temperature is 85C +, and cpu spikes from 30-100%?
