Is there a simple way to tell that you are running in dual channel mode. I have a NF7-S and have 2 sticks of ram on row 1 and 3. Thats the correct placement of the ram for dual mode, but wondering if theres a way to tell its working. Thanks!
i would say check in the BIOS. are you sure thats the correct placement? i dont have and NForce 2 but i would think that it would be 1 and 2 and they would be right next to each other... might wanna double check the manual
I have the Gigabyte Sinxp1394 Mobo and on the initial load up screen if you have the Ram in slots 1/3 or 2/4 it will say Dual Channel DDR (XXXMhz) whatever you're running your ram at.
In order to check if Dual channel is working, I have to look in the "advanced chipset" menu of my bios (menu may have a diff name for you). I have to hit (ctrl+f1) when in bios to make the menu appear. If you don't have that as one of your regular bios menus you could try (ctrl-f1) but obviously not all mobos are the same so if that doesn't work check your manual and see if there is a way to make an "advanced" menu to appear.
In the advanced menu I can change my Ram timings, AGP Aperture, and enable/disable dual channel. Most mobos I know that support dual channel auto detect and utilize it if Ram is put in the right slots though.
man your just asking for your head to catch fire arnt you. Just consider watching what you say in a forum that isnt just Intel ok. I personally love AMD and not intel but i dont go around stating that either is better or ones performance is better or anything to the such and i suggest you do the same from now on
