  1. The Motherboard i have is a - Supermicro X5DA8 supporting
    Dual channel PC2100 DDR 266 ecc reg - 12gig total with 6 slots.
    http://www.supermicro.com/products/...E7505/X5DA8.cfm
    The memory sheme is interleaved so i must install 2 modules at a time.

    (I have 3 banks total each with 2 slots)

    Bank 1 Bank2 Bank3
    | | | | | |
    1B 1A 2B 2A 3B 3A

    Ok i want to run dual channel - right now i have 2 512 Dimms in slot 1B and 1A on bank 1 So i have 1 gig total ram.

    So questions -
    #1 Am i running in dual channel mode the way i have set up now?

    I Just bought 2 1gig Dimms to go along with my 2 512 dimms to total 3 gigs in my system.

    #2 Now would i just drop in those 2 1 gig dimms in bank 2 - 2B and 2A? Is that the correct way to run in dual channel mode?

    *BTW all the dimms are the same speed and make they are just differant sizes.


    Thanks for your help!!
