Hello, I have the new Sandy Bridge I5 2500k and cant tell if my memory is running in dual channel . Sisoft says yes and cpuz says nothing . I thought that since the memory controller is on the chip , i should check someplace else . Any thoughts on this one ? my mem is G. Skill Ripjaw 1333 10666 and my mobo is the MSI P76A-GD65 MS-7681

Load a utility called CPUZ. The Memory tab will tell you.

+1 also when you boot up your bios startup info should tell you.

If you have an even number of memory sticks (with the same capacity, speed, and timings), and they are installed in same-color memory slots on the board, they are operating in dual-channel.

And CPU-Z isn't always accurate. I have version 1.57 on my Sandy Bridge system, and the memory channels area is blank. They will eventually come out with a version that fully supports Sandy Bridge.
