    Yes but I just noticed that they're only black instead of 1 black and 2 blue plus it is only an nForce2 400 not the Ultra version (I should've checked the site out 1st).

    I thought all nForce2-based motherboards supported Dual Channel? a mate has a 8RDA+ and it runs it fine (had it for about 10months):confused:

    I think its a single channel board, but at the post screen when it states memory frequency it sais "Single Channel Mode" ?

    I managed to get it to recognise the 2nd stick of RAM, but it wouldnt boot properly, it kept freezing just before the WinXP load screen, so I just took it out again.

    All the original nForce2 chipsets do (8RDA+ is the early chipset and I have 2 of them) but when the nForce2 400 series chipsets were released ya got the single channel only nForce2 400 and the dual channel nForce2 400 Ultra.

    ah i see.
    seems kinda weird that with the newer chipset nForce2 400, they didnt continue the DC feature that was with the previous 'generation' (8RDA+ etc), seems like going back a step? And making a m-board that is DC capable isnt too expensive surely? :confused: why not have all nForce2 chipsets have DC? (nForce2/400/400 Ultra)

    prolly for ppl that want a cheaper computer
    I got the same mobo and never checked the dual channel option because I was a noob at mobos before I got here (hmzz...I still am :P)

    this mobo costs about 85 euros
    dual channel with about the same specs is aprox 100 euros
    now I know, I would have gladly paid the little extra :(

    its a little like SATA and IDE HDDs
    SATA=faster and has been here for some time now, but most mobos still have IDE
    Tomorrow today will be yesterday.

    The Magazines I read say that the performance increase with dual channel set ups is negligable.

    The increase is in the range of 3-5% but I'll take whatever increase is available.
