I have a GIGABYTE X38T-DQ6 motherboard. The memory is Corsair DDR3 TWIN3X2048-1066C7.

When the motherboard boots, it says: "Memory runs at single channel". The memory is dual channel. Is there something that I need to change in the bios to make it run in dual channel mode?

The banks are colored: green, red, green, red. I have one in the first green and one in the first red.

Most (MSI are you listening???) motherboards require the ram to be in the same colored slots for dual channel operation. Try plugging them both into the green slots.

Moving the DIMM from the red slot to the green slot resolved the issue. Thanks for the help.

lol, that depends on your motherboard. 4745454b is correct. MSI boards do it backwards. But you are using Gigabyte, so take your ram in the red bank and move it to the 2nd green bank.
