  1. Yes, that configuration would run in dual channel, although you'll have to watch out for possible RAM conflicts - sometimes different RAM just doesn't work together.
  2. they are all from same manufacturer ...
    so, how should i arrange it?
    slot 1:1gb
    slot 2:1gb
    slot 3:512mb
    slot 4:512mb

    like that can?
  3. Depending on how your motherboard requires them. Match capacity with color

    is it right if i put
    slot 1:1gb
    slot 2:1gb
    slot 3:512mb
    slot 4:512mb

    slot 1&2 same color
    slot 3&4 same color
    ??
  5. Yeap. That should do the trick. Once you've put them in place, boot up and download CPU-Z. It should tell you if it's in Dual Channel
  6. Your motherboard manual will tell you what the slot assignments are...and when you boot up you'll see the "dual channel" message on the screen just below the processor info..
    In my experience most motherboards are configured for 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 for dual channel mode...
    What motherboard do you have?

    What motherboard do you have?

    my motherboard is GIGABYTE GA-K8NF-9
  8. In that motherboard. for dual channel you must put in slots 1 and 3(Channel A), 2 and 4(Channel B)

    Install the RAM like this
    Slot 1 1 Gig
    Slot 2 512 Meg
    Slot 3 1 Gig
    Slot 4 512 Meg

    But, I have the same setup in the kids computer 2 x 1gig and 2 x 512 = 3 gig in Dual Channel.
