It is the same thing with the Dual Channel. They RAM acts in pairs. Instead of alone. So using them in Dual Channel mode allows them to work.
At least that is what i am gathering from your explaination.
thnx for the reply bro. actually i also took part in those 32 bit discussions and i know those limitations and thts why i bought the 64bit architecture mobo so that it supports 4 gb ram (at least the board). 32bit board doesnt even recognizes 4gb ram (ga-945gcmx s2).
after the whole night of investigation
my mobo boots with right 2 slots of rams occupied (single channel shows )
my mobo doesnt boot with left 2 slots of rams occupied (dual channel shows)
