Question about Intel Motherboard
I'm trying to run my rig with Dual channel memory (mobo is capable). I have a 1gb stick of Patriot PC3200 DDR 400mhz and I've found a stick of Crucial PC3200 DDR 400mhz that I can get a good price on and need to know the timing for it. I'm running two different makers on another rig (Kingston 512mb & Micron 512mb). (same capacity, speed, timing) and their running perfect Dual Channel.
Crucial's rep didn't have a clue, just tried to sell me a 2GB kit.
My Patriots running 3-4-4-8.
Do you know what the Crucial runs at ?
Hey bud I ain't raggin you, but from your statement, which you now say you left out a bunch, one could only think that when you said "same" it meant like the same everything. Ok so now your not in the same good company of those lying SOB's that want to sell you their products exclusively.
I actually also have a friends computer that has a 512mb stick of PC2700 Hynix and a 512mb stick of PC2700 Crucial in it just like yours and they were running in Single Channel mode and I got them to run Dual Channel by adjusting his BIOS to 2.5-3-3-7 and now his computer picked up about 10% with them running in Dual Channel mode.
I have found out now that as long as the capacity & speed are the same you can adjust the timming to get them forced into Dual Channel by changing the BIOS up a little.
later and happy tweakin

Well not exactly true there colliewob , I hate to go against a higher ranker but in this case you may not be telling the exact truth , one CAN run dual channel with two different DDR sticks
dual channel DDR is kind of a missconception , because motherboards operate in dual channel mode if you have two sticks of the same speeds and timmings , they can be of different brands
what I'm saying here is that DUAL-Channel is an old concept from the days of the Pentium MMX chips where you needed to run two sticks of memory before it could work.
todays dual channel marketing lie has capitolized on that , and repackaged it as DUAL CHANNEL
because they like to tell marketing lies to get you to think it's brand new technology concepts.
I don't expect a fixya for my stements here , just trying to wake us up a bit to the lies.
lets all gang up on them and stop these lies.
