Only use 3 slots if possible. RAM timing guarantees/stability guarantees go out the door when all slots are filled. 3X2gig for 6, or 3X4gig for 12. You should have all 3 slots filled. 1.5V a plus in my book.
This is what I am currently running in mine (i7 email@example.com/ EX58-UD4P), happy as a clam with it:
Tall heatsinks so I had to move the fan om my CPU cooler.
Also good, I have built/used it in the past:
Great RAM, but because of shipping/time problems for a customer, it got put into their build while I ordered more RAM for my RIG.
Also used Ripjaw series on another AMD build, and it works fine (to spec):
(note- not a 6 gig kit)
Fortunately OCZ doesn't sell RAM anymore, so I won't bore you with my horror tales in dealing with their stuff.
