More aboutactive dual channel mode
You do not activate dual-channel operation. Motherboard does it for you provided that your laptop's motherboard supports dual-channel operation. Different brands and sizes should not matter. Dual-channel maps for the smallest size.
Rules to Enable Dual Channel Mode To achieve Dual Channel mode, the following conditions must be met:
Matched DIMM configuration in each channel Same Density (128MB, 256MB, 512MB, etc.) Matched in both Channel A and Channel B memory channels
Populate symmetrical memory slots (Slot 0 or Slot 1) Configurations that do not match the above conditions will revert to Single Channel mode.
The following conditions do not need to be met: Same brand Same timing specifications Same DDR speed Memory channel speed is determined by the slowest DIMM module populated in the system.
