I have a Gigabyte GA 8PE800-RS motherboard that supports DDR 400 ( PC3200 ) memory. The processor installed is a Pentium 4 3.2 ( socket 478 ) HT.
I bought 2 x 256 mb DDR 400 Apacer memory modules that installed OK and the system is running fine. The problem is that when i open CPU-Z its says in the Memory section that my memory modules are running in single channel mode. I checked them and they are installed ok ( according to the motherboard manual ). I also checked the bios...and everything is fine. What can be the cause of running in single channel mode...?? Please Help...

The memory modules are located in socket 1 & 3 ( i have also tried 1-2, 2-3 with no resolution). Yes... the Motherboard is a special edition of the other 8PE800 you saw in the site of gigabyte and it supports Dual Channel DDR memory ( as it is stated clearly in the manual ). It has only 3 ddr sockets ( ans in the manual its says that the only drawback to have the memory running in dual channel is that it supports only 2 ddr dimms at any given time ).
