MSI REWARDS - PARTICIPATE ON MSI FORUMS, GET REWARDS
Originally posted by NovJoe Hi Gigabyte,It is always recommended you get the same model, speed and capacity of the RAMs to run dual channel as the mobo will still detect both RAMs but only reconigsed them running in Dual Channel and therefore, it will double the RAM speed and halves the capacity. Getting the same type of RAMs will let mobo better detection and calculation of RAMs speed and capacity.
Originally posted by Thudo Thanks everyone for their help! Wow! Talk about a \"global community\" coming together! Thankfully the system is running stable (Bios v1.2) with this Single/Virtual Channel fiasco still running but I haven\'t yet seen anyone running Bios v1.2 with OCZ PC3500 Ram running in Dual-Channel - seems to be working with v1.3+.. For now I might just wait til Bios v1.5, let it be tested by others, then decide how to proceed. I can \"tolerate\" my 2900 SiSandra Memory Benches even though I should be getting more like 5000. I\'m still wayyyyyyyyy faster than all of my friends combined! :D
