    Does the dual channel memory help you crunch faster?
    And if so, how much faster?

    I'll let you know when my RAM turns up. At the moment I've got 1 x 512MB stick in, but have a couple sticks of Corsair on the way.

    Well my XP1800+ w/ KT333 takes about 3hr 5min but my XP1800+ w/ nForce2 cut that by another 15-20min until I o/c'd it.

    only a 20min difference between the single channel on kt333 and nforce2 is kinda dissapointing.

    I want to know on just nforce2, so i guess Ill wait for Beefys ram.
    thanks

    With my MSI Kt3ultra 2 mobo running the same ram CPU and oc I was getting times avging 2.6/wu. With the Epox 8rda+ I am avging 2.1, again that is with the same basic settings as the old mobo. Thats about 30 minutes off each WU!

    Well I guess what i want to know is whats the WU times with 512 in regular mode as opposed to 2x256 dual chanel on nforce2 board. I know they would be faster as opposed to any other mobo, but just wondering if going with dual channel is really worth it.
