  1. hey guys i was just wondering how to turn on duel channel
    i was looking at my bios settings today and i noticed its set on single channel and i cant change it.

    i have a intel 865glc mobo (its has duel channel capability....4 ram slots)

    It depends on what kind of memory and how many sticks you are using. If you are using 1 or 3 stick then dual channel will not work. For dual channel to work you need to use matched pairs on memory (ie 2 X 512 or 2 X 1gb).

    I`m pretty sure your mobo doesn`t support dual channel memory operation. See the mobo specs HERE.

    The number of dims slots on a mobo is no indication as to whether it will support dual channel ram operation.
