Dual Channel DDR on NON-Dual Channel Motherboard, will it work?

  1. Hey Everyone,

    I am brand spankin' new here, and I have a question for someone out there. I currently have a SOYO motherboard (which I have been having issues with) and I am going to be switching to a ECS Elite Group board in a few weeks. My question is, when I bought RAM for my SOYO I bought Patriot Dual Channel DDR 3200 1gb pair, but the ECS board I am switching to does not support Dual Channel, so can I still use the the 2 512 sticks normally on the new board or I do I have to get new memory or a different board? I would think it would just run them as 2 sticks of 512, but I am not sure and I wanted to know if anyone else knew this or not?

    Thanks in advance for any help (and sorry if I missed this being posted somewhere else, I did try and search for the answer but didnt see anything).

    So you are saying that I can only use 1 of the sticks?

    I'm saying it will work & that you do not need to get new memory.
