Xp 3200+ dont overclock all that well. What mobo, RAM do you have? 3200+ max out around 2.4-2.5Ghz.

You appear to be labouring under the misapprehension that ram is dual channel capable or not ...... the answer is NOT
The only prerequisite for ram to run in dual channel is that the sticks are the same (preferably identical), dual channel is determined by the m/board. If the board is dual channel capable and you have two ram sticks the same, it will run in dual channel, consult your m/board manual for dual channel configuration, usually slots 0 & 2, 1 & 3 or all four filled will give dual channel.

OK, here's how it actually works. It support Sempron, but it supports all Socket 462 processors. There's nothng wrong in there. For the Dual Channel RAM, place the RAM in slot1 and 3. Even if they are not dual Channel, they will work like dual channel memory. The motherboard will control it.
