Asus p8p67 Deluxe with Ripjaw X Ram Issue

Build Details:

Asus p8p67 Deluxe Rev.B
Intel Core I7 2600k
G.Skill F3-12800CL0D-16GBXL Ripjaws X 16GB 2X8GB kit 240 API DDR3 1600 SDram


Hi there, I recently installed new ram and having a issue determining whether or not my ram is running in dual channel mode.
With my previous corsair ram, Im 99% positive on the bios bootup screen it showed my ram was running in dual channel - but with this new ram it doesn't show that. Here's the kicker though, when I load cpu-z in win 7, it shows my ram is running in dual chan mode. Is this normal? is there something wrong?

Is my bios or cpu-z giving me the correct read out on the channel state?

I don't think its the ram chips because I have 2 exactly identical gaming rigs and upgraded both boxes with the exact same ram (at the same time) and having the exact same issue.

I have the ram installed in A2 & B2 slots (blue colored sockets) on the motherboard just like the manual shows.

Tested the ram set to auto and XMP in bios with the same results.

Checked the ram timings in bios and it shows CL10-10-10-30 1.5v just like on the package

Other than the missing (Dual channel mode) missing from my boot up screen, the ram chips work flawlessly.

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

I don't know where you would see the motherboard reporting dual channel mode. I've never seen it, but I just spent about 30 seconds studying my POST screen to make sure and I still didn't. I also looked through my BIOS to make sure, but there's nothing. The only thing I see reporting dual channel is software like CPU-Z. So, I honestly believe that you might have been imagining it.

I have never seen a setting in my Bios to set it to dual channel mode.
Just remember seeing something like this on the boot up screen

Total Memory: 16384 MB (DDR3-1600) Dual Channel Mode

Before I posted above, I spent about 30 seconds looking at my POST screen to make sure and there's nothing about dual channel mode. I have the P8P67 EVO with 2 sticks of Ripjaws X in the correct slots as well, so it's essentially the same board with the same memory. CPU-Z reports it as dual channel, so I'm not concerned. ;)

 

Maybe it's just an "Option ROM Message".
