Solved Ram not running in dual channel Tags: Memory RAM Dual Channel Motherboards Last response: February 9, 2010 11:43 PM in Memory Share peterboi February 2, 2010 5:35:27 PM I know that 2 of the Rams aren't the exact same kind but they're practically the same. Is there a way to force them into dual channel? Slot 1 and 3 Slot 2 and 4 They're not the greatest but that's what i have to live with until i can get new ones. I'm positive these should be able to work in dual channel. I'm using the motherboard M4A77D.

My 1gig sticks aren't compatible. Which would perform better? 1gig (512mbx512mb) in dual channel or 3 gigs in single? m 0 l wlaziu February 2, 2010 11:45:46 PM I would opt for volume If you would loosen the timings by a notch maybe they will work in dual mode (ie 5-5-5-20 or 21), or set the frequency of DDRs to non-standard (ie 348) m 0 l peterboi February 3, 2010 12:50:10 AM I'm not the brightest person when it comes to ram. But how would i loosen the timings? m 0 l peterboi February 3, 2010 1:20:59 AM It didn't work. m 0 l GhislainG a c 80 } Memory a c 229 V Motherboard February 3, 2010 1:30:42 AM wlaziu is correct. You're better off with all memory installed, even if it runs in single channel mode. m 0 l Lutfij a b } Memory a b V Motherboard February 3, 2010 3:52:10 PM if dual channels what u want then have the kingstons - that way u can get rid of the corsairs. otherwise i agree with both GhislainG + wlaziu. but the corsairs have tighter timings. m 0 l peterboi February 9, 2010 11:43:56 PM Best answer selected by peterboi. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
