Dual channel memory explanation needed

By detoam
Feb 26, 2008
  1. Hi there!
    I am way behind on my terminology and so on. I have two sticks of 512MB Kingston dual channel on a ASUS M2A-VM. My question is what dual channel means? How can I benefit from this. I also have read the manual for mobo, but I still can't figure out which slots I should put the memory in for best performance. Apparently they see a difference and made two slots specially for it, but it says I need three sticks to benefit.
    I am so confused.

    Thank you.

    Section 1.7.2 of your manual is VERY clear on ram placement for dual channel operation.

    What part of that is hard to understand?
