CPU-Z Doesn't show DC Mode
Nov 17, 2012, 10:29 AM
First off, I'm a hardware newb, so take it easy on me please :P
Anyway, I seem to have run into a little problem. Ever since I updated my CPU (today), CPU-Z is no longer reporting a DC Mode (screenshot:
I'm pretty certain before I switched my CPU, a DC Mode was showing but I could just be paranoid.
Can anyone tell me what the problem is, or is everything how it should be?
System information (incase you need it):
CPU: AMD FX 8320 (non OC)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz (non OC)
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX - with latest BIOS.

If you have Channels = Dual then DC Mode = ""; Unganged (Dual) vs Ganged (DC Mode). In other words one or the other, overall you're better off with newer AMD CPU's in Dual Channel (Unganged).

Yes, specifically it's 'DCT Unganged Mode [Enabled]' in the BIOS.

. Wasn't quite sure what it meant though. Thanks Jaquith!
