Dual Channel DDR


FPCH Member
Dec 29, 2007
As a newbie i really need some help to understand this, and to know whether or not I will benifit from this process.

I have a Gigabyte board, and in the manual it explains that if you insert one stick in Channel A; eg DDR 1, and another stick into Channel B; eg DDR 2, then the bandwidth of Mermory BUS will Double.

My current setup from RAM is two 512 sticks (Kingston), and they are in the same colour DDR. Now is this correct and the same channel or Aand B? I'm confused, please help?
