Ram not running in duel mode?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey i just got my rig put together and and noticed that in cpuz under memory tab is says Channels # 1

does that mean i'm running in single channel and not duel??

I have OCZ 2x1gb duel channel DDr400 pc3200 ram. They are installed in slots 1 and 3 on MSI K8N neo4 plat

can anyone help me with how to get my ram to run in duel channel mode please.

EDIT: I'm going to try moving my sticks around. It says in the manual there are only 3 combinations that will work for duel....bht then the next sentice says make sure to fill the green slots first. Which is what i did, slot 1 and 3 being green. I'm going to try slot 1 and 2 now.
thanks

ill keep checking back incase you need any more information.

Lol i thought i'd respond to my own problem incase anyone else has this problem.

I switched my ram to dimms 1 and 2 instead of the color matched 1 and 3....

it now says in cpuz channel# 2

smiles ear to ear

i'm curious what it will do to my 3dmark05

my score in single channel mode was 5017. I'll retest now in duel and post again.
