Am I running Dual Channel or Single Channel Memory? Help?

Hi guys.
I purchased 2 Crucial Ballistix Sport Modules. 4gb each. Both are identical.

I installed them on their Alternate dimm slots. All slots are black in color. Motherboard is a GA-990FXA-UD3.

In Amd Overdrive it shows Dual Channel

But in CPU-Z it's single channel.

  4. CPU-Z sometimes misreads the DRAM and dual channel, particularly in AMD...do you have ver 1.66.1
