Please use OCN or at least a reputable host for pictures. We've had numerous users' AV's go off with your links.

My deepest apologies, I've never had a problem with that host for pictures before.

Your memory looks like it should be running fine.

Is your computer acting up?

If it's DDR-800, it's set up right!

It works but I think its set up wrong. I looked into it more.

My motherboard supports dual channel and has four slots.

When I made this thread this was the way the ram was setup


Slot1: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot2: 512mb DDR 400mhz
Slot3: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot4: 512mb DDR 400mhz

Summary: 3gb DDR Non Dual Channel @ 400mhz

With that setup Dual Channel wasn't active.


I've looked through my ram and these are the following possible setups I can do:

SETUP #1:

Slot1: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot2: 512mb DDR 400mhz
Slot3: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot4: 512mb DDR 400mhz

Summary: 3gb DDR Non Dual Channel @ 400mhz

SETUP #2:

Slot1: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot2: 256mb DDR 400mhz
Slot3: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot4: 256mb DDR 400mhz

Summary: 2.5gb DDR Dual Channel @ 400mhz

That setup supports Dual Channel.

SETUP #3:

Slot1: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot2: 512mb DDR 400mhz
Slot3: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot4: 512mb DDR 266mhz

Summary: 3gb DDR Dual Channel @ 266mhz

That setup supports dual channel, however, only at 266mhz instead of 400mhz.

SETUP #4:

Slot1: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot2: 128mb DDR 400mhz
Slot3: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot4: 512mb DDR 400mhz

Summary: 2.75gb DDR None Dual Channel @ 400mhz

That setup doesn't support dual channel.

SETUP #5:

Slot1: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot2: Empty
Slot3: 1gb DDR 400mhz
Slot4: Empty

Summary: 2gb DDR Dual Channel @ 400mhz

That setup supports dual channel.

I think the setup for best performance would be SETUP #2.
