  1. Does anyone know whether a trigem 2002052 MB (in a hp p9855a computer) supports Dual Channel DDR memory

    I would say no dual channel support... It is an old motherboard

    All TriGems are made under license... In other words, they are copies of boards, so anything is possible. But the HP 9855 does have four memory slots and each has only 256 MB... so it may not be called Dual Channel but it sure looks like it.

    Actually it is a 9855a model and only has 2 memory slots. And because I am unsure, I decided to buy 1 1gb stick of regular memory so the point is as they say moot. Thanks for your input :>)

    Dual Channel or not, your system could benefit from installing 2GB, One 1GB DDR2100 module in each slot

    Yep, and when my budget allows, I will get the other GB, and thanks. Oh, and HP tells me that the board will run at 400 FSB so DDR3200
    will work.

    According to the online reports from HP, you must have stated the hp p9855a model number incorrectly, because I didn't get close to the same thing when I went to the HP site under that model number

    It's there, p9855a, I just left the page, it's under product Information once you get to the page
    So it must be you who are in error, not moi. :>)
