My System Specs


X58 Only supports triple channel DDR3 ram at this time.

Triple channel only means you need to have 3 sticks of the same format/type of ram in the board at a time.

Triple Channel (like dual channel) memory is exactly the same as single channel memory except that when you buy a pack of three sticks; those specific sticks are tested and guaranteed to work together in triple channel mode.

You cannot use DDR2 in an X58 system.

You cannot use your current DDR2 ram in this board; because it's DDR2 and because you will need three sticks of it. Even if you do have three sticks; it still will not work.

The voltages on the board are going to work differently than your old system and you run the risk of frying your ram or possibly the CPU.
