Hello,I have 2x2GB of Gskill DDR3 1333Mhz CL9 (F3-10666CL9-4GBRL) on my 890GPA-UD3H revision 2.1,ram is on slots #1 & 2.
CPU-Z reports running in dual channel,AMD AOD reports single channel mode,which is correct?

Thanks everyone,one other thing can this cheap ram be modified,ie. timings/speeds?
Dunno why AOD sees my ram as single channel.

It is running dual channel, but the unganged part doesn't matter. It can be dual channel either way, ganged just means the CPU works in 1 x 128 bit while unganged is 2 x 64 bit for accessing the memory. For general use unganged is better.

Yes, you can adjust the settings, both frequency and timings.

RAM slots #1 and 2. Slot 1 is blue,slot 2 is white.
I'm aware i can change ram settings in BIOS,though I figured cheap ram doesn't have much capability with timings.

Same coloured slots is the way to go. Move the one from RAM slot 1 to RAM slot 3 (4th slot). Then it will run in dual channel. At the moment it is indeed running in single channel, and why CPU-Z reports it as dual channel stumbles me as that would be wrong. Dual channel requires same coloured slots.

Ah,I will move the 2nd stick into the blue slot then. My rig should feel faster as I was running single channel the whole time.
EDIT- the motherboard manual confirms this,guess I should have read it.
Thank you for the help. +rep!
