Thread: dual channel and FBS!!!!

  1. #1


    well I just got another stick of Geil PC3200 (400 Mhz) 512mb and put it on my NF7-S with my other identical stick of ram and when running it in dual channel mode I couldn't get over 180 FBS whereas with my single stick I was hitting 210. Anyway I heard somewhere that dual channel is a bit finicky when raiseing your FBS so I just used the first 2 slots on my m/b and stuff me up a dead bears bum if I'm lying but I could get it up just over 200. Has anyone else seen this? I also had raised the DDR volts to 2.7 before installing the second stick.

    Yes, I've seen alot of nF2 users running into this issue. The good news is that the dual-channel feature only does about 3-5% extra over single channel---this is due to the design of the Athlon XP chip designed for single channel from the start.

    By FBS I assume you mean FSB as in Front Side Bus?
