    That depends on whether or not you have a matching set of dual channel memory installed.

    It should choose this settiing itself, be sure to have your ram installed in the correct, usually color coded slots, presuming you have 4 ram slots..

    Make sure both sticks are in the same color slots, usually with a empty slot between them.
