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!
