More about : dual channel stick Best solution ko888 a b } Memory November 17, 2011 2:57:42 AM Share If all you have is a single DIMM then it will obviously only operate in single channel mode. Dual channel operation requires at least one matched pair of DIMMs with one DIMM installed in Channel A and the other DIMM installed in Channel B. jiyung November 17, 2011 3:03:39 AM ko888 said:If all you have is a single DIMM then it will obviously only operate in single channel mode.

Only get a module with the exact same memory timings and voltage. Even then it's not guaranteed to work properly. A dual channel kit is the best way to go. At most, dual channel will give you up to a 5% increase in memory performance. jiyung November 23, 2011 11:25:31 PM Best answer selected by jiyung. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
