I just realized that all this time my memory has not been running in Dual Channel mode <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
I should have noticed this a lot earlier, but the performance doesnt seem comprimised. I can't wait to see what it can do running dual channels.<br />
<br />
First I need some help:<br />
<br />
2x512mb Corsair XMS platnum 2-3-3-6<br />
1x1gb Corsair XMS 2-3-3-6 (w/ LED)<br />
<br />
Gigabyte K8NS motherboard<br />
<br />
I have tried all differnt combinations of ram from 1x512, 2x512, 1x1gb, and all 3 together. CPU-z insists that I am running in single channel mode no matter what.<br />
<br />
Any ideas?

You can only use 2 sticks in dual channel and make sure you are using the right DIMMS, I don't know how it is with the K8NS but with my Ultra-D you need to have the sticks in the same coloured slots

Im not an expret on amd cpus but i think socket 754 boards dont support dual channel but 939 boards do. I did a google on your board and got hits for a socket 754 and a 939.
