Default 1 + 2x CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B = still dual channel ?


I have bought 1 stick of CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B like 6 month ago.. which is 4gb
of ram. Now i am getting 2 more of this stick (same model, same stuff but dual channel).. for a total of 12gb.

Is this gonna work like dual channel ?

Also how would you configure these on a P8P67 asus motherboard ?

Your board will probably revert to single channel mode with 3 sticks installed...There is no mention in the manual for three sticks so it may not even work... You need to populate 2 or 4 slots to retain dual channel mode.

Check your mobo manual if you have one.
