So just to clarify, Each RAM stick (I have two) is running at 533 MHz. (1066 divided by 2)
So lets say i had 3 sticks of DDR2, would each stick then run at 355MHz? (1066 divided by 3)
DDR = Double Data Rate.
RAM running at 533MHz can do two operates per cycle so that it can effective work at 1066MHz.
You are confusing that with dual/triple channel. A single DIMM is 64-bit wide. If you controller supports it, you can combine channels to make 128-bit or 192-bit wide channels. However, this only helps if you have large memory requests.
