    I'm certainly not goin' to dump a memory channel on my nForce2 setups as I'd only have the same performance then as a KT400/A setup. :no:

    Actually soulburner is correct if your FSB is above 166 as it should be for all good OCers.

    DC on AMD only gets you about 2% to 3% more bandwidth if you are lucky and it usually retards your ability to get your Highest FSB. test it out for yourself on Sandra. This should change (hopefully) when the Athlon64 is released.:)

    If you have doubts about it, then check out the difference in performance levels when comparing an nForce2 based motherboard with both the KT400 and KT600 models that are readily available to the public. Even the newer KT600 board doesn't get you to the same plateau in regards to either overall performance or memory bandwidth.
    Go and have a look at the reviews around the web as Darth suggested but I know which of my AMD systems perform the best and the nForce2 ones leave my VIA ones well behind. :blah:

    Really now? Then how come I can notice a differnce between single and dual channel in game l;oading times etc? But no, there is no difference

    Quote from my A7N8X DX user's manual:
    NOTE: To enhance system performance, utilize dual-channel feature when installing additional DIMMs. You may install the DIMMs in the following sequence: Sockets 1 and 3, sockets 2 and 3 or sockets 1, 2 and 3.
    Hmmm, doesn't say anything about losing dual-channel with a 3rd DIMM....
    My Albatron KM18G Pro manual states:
    To enable dual-channel DDR functionality, your system must meet certain configuration conditions. First, you can only use 2 of the 3 DIMM slots...
    And my Chaintech 7NIF2 Summit manual notes:
    For maximized Dual-Channel (128 bit) result, you must install one of your two memory modules on DDR3
    Appears that on certain nForce2 mobos (which all of these are) Dual-Channel only works with 2 sticks. The original post wasn't very specific regarding the mobo in question.

    Suggest some of you READERS try doing some actual BENCHMARKING. Use sisoft sandra bandwidth benchmark and you'll see for your selves that DC dosn't help AMD hardly ANY when OCd.:)

    BTW DC only works with 2 or 4 Dimms.

    I suggest you shut your mouth. AS I have done benchamrks, and also, If there is a VISUAL difference, then why even go to the benchmarks?

    Later noobs...LOL Visual... Right. whatever .....people see what they expect. general rule of observation

    You obviously havn't done the benches or you'd be agreeing with me. Try lying to someone who dosn't know anything.

    Was trying to give the members of this forum some very good advice.... oh well your loss not mine.

    BTW game loading times are 90% dependant on Hard drive performance. Which changes all the time for each program due to position and cache status.

    Trust me m8, I can tell when Im not in dual channel, AND YES i have done the friggin benches, So i dont need you tellin me I havent. Soo, If you still wanna go calling me and the other members wrong, go ahead, but you'll end up like Soulburner eventually.
