  • dual channel

    I as the compie dumbie am not absolutely sure so i better ask you :
    I ve got 2x 1gb piece of ram and to use them in dual channel configuartion i have to :
    Put both RAMs to channel a1 and a2 ?
    or one to a1 and the other to b1 ?

    on the MoBo theyre there like this : A1 A2 B1 B2 .. strange as A1 and B1 are the same colour (black) and A2 and B2 too (yellow)
    ^^ what acutally confuses me

    fank you

    you need to refer to your mb manual but normally two colours indicate separate channels or different speeds of ram .need more details ie ddr or sd or ddr2

      Additionally, it should tell you if the computer is making use of dual memory when you see the POST screen.

        just insert them into the first two banks starting from left or right.
        Then check bootscreen. | [email protected]

          A1 & A2, set the memory frequency in the BIOS. Read the MoBo Manual too, should be able to get it running no problem.

          I've got 4 x 512 chips running in the same kinda config and it's fine.

            Typically its A1 & B1, A2 & B2, hence why they are the same color
