Dual Channel or not

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Just checking, I posted a pic in another thread, I was PM'd that my memory wasn't running in dual channel. Memtest says 128bit, CPU-z says I'm in dual channel & the manual says the slots I have filled are dual channel. Just confirming that I am in fact running dual channel, look at the pics & let me know.

Yep.

Abit is the only mobo manufacturer that I know of that puts the same channel on one side. As for other boards, it's always the odd or evens, or same colored.

So your telling me the manual is wrong, CPU-Z is wrong & Memtest is wrong, they all show the memory running in dual channel, the three combinations listed in the top of the picture from the manual show the possibilities for dual channel.

I use to use this board as my main board and still use it for my secondary rig. IT IS IN DUAL CHANNEL. For some odd reason that is how dual channel works in that board. When I first used it I had the ram in same color slots and it was single. In the instruction manual there is a diagram showing them being right next to each other IS dual channel, yet the text above that diagram has a typo.

Edit: oh i see you have the diagram linked

Thanks drifter, I was getting ready to pull a stick & try the other way. The manul is a bit misleading, the text says to look at the chart below the text, but, the chart for the three dual channel combinations is above the text. A rep for you sir.
