Here's my computer specifications:
-AMD Athlon 64 3500+ CPU
-MSI K8N Neo4-R motherboard
-250Gb Maxtor S-ATA HD
-XFX GeForce 6600 GT 128Mb PCI-E video card
-2 x 512Mb DDR400 memory
First question is: Anyone got troubles with NVIDIA's IDE drivers? I downloaded the latest from MSI's web site, and when I install them, my computer freeze a lot. When I use Microsoft's IDE, everything is fine...
Second question: Why do we need to put the 2 dimm memory in different color slots to get Dual Channel? I saw a couple of other motherboards where you need to put the 2 dimm in the same color slots.
Third question: I plugged my SATA HD on SATA1 port and my 2 DVD drives on IDE 1... Is it the correct way to plug?
The memory has to be in the particular slots for dual channel to work. If both are in the same color on this board, it will run in single channel mode.
I agree, no reason to use the nvidia ide driver if the microsoft one works.
