Re: dual channel ddr
As long as your motherboard supports dual channel, it should be in the bios yeah.
You'll know its working I think when you power up the PC, it says "dual channel enabled" when searching for the RAM.
EDIT: Another thing worth mentioning is that it matters where the ram sticks go in the dimms (ram slots).
Make sure either that the sticks are in the 1st and 2nd dimm, or the 3rd and 4th dimm so that they are together, and not 1 in the first and 1 in maybe dimm 4 (if you have that many on your motherboard). This is how it works in most motherboards and might help
Hope this helps
