lol just a hype?! it makes your ram clock at double the speed, ie: pc3200 clocks at 400mhz normally, if you have a dual channel enabled board, a P4C with the 800MHz FSB, and 2 of the same size sticks of ram, they will clock at 800MHz, instead of 400, thats quite a jump, no hype, just numbers

and bleep i believe that is true, i think you have to have even amouts with the 2 or 4 slot boards as slots 0 and 1 cant be combined to creat channel 0, unless everthing is even, am i thinking right MB?

LOL! ..so complicated, but it's fun to ponder and learn about this stuff.

i dont know about that i think your talking about Conventional sdram gets clocked once per cycle. DDR ram on the other hand gets clocked twice per cycle allowing for twice as much data to be transferred in one cycle.
When enabling duel channel mode that just gives a little boost although the ram is already ddr. Or you could be right but thats what i thought
