Dual channel question from a newb


Recommended Posts

Okay I noticed today that on CPU-Z, my "channel #'s" is listed as in single... as in not dual channel? i know my mobo supports dual channel and i was wondering if i needed to set something in the bios to get it in dual channel? I am asking because i tried sticking one of each stick in both orange or yellow slots, and the system wouldnt boot that way. Currently, i have one stick in a yellow and one in a orange slot. help?

In order for dual channel to work they have to be in the same colored slot. What happens when you put both sticks in the orange colored slots? You said it wouldn't boot, do you mean it posts but Windows won't load or it doesn't post at all?
