meistertek Posted December 31, 2004 Share Posted December 31, 2004 I have a VS512MB266 module in my system and decided to upgrade and buy another VS512MB266 so I could run dual channel. :): But here's the problem: I just purchased another VS512MB266 module from a local supplier and it shows up as a 333MHz module :bigeyes: and my mother board will not run in dual channel mode. :(: The first and existing module is numbered 817 0445034-1 001322 and shows up as a 266MHz module durring boot. The sencond module I just purchased is numbered 0445001-1 and shows up as a 333MHz module durring boot. On close inspection of this module I did notice that it was different with chips only on one side of the module not on two sides like existing module. I know that running dual channel requires the same technology modules with the same configuration, I thought this would be obtained by buying two Corsair modules with the same part numbers? My system consists of the following: Intel D865PERL motherboard Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 400-MHz bus My memory setting in the bios are default allowing the modules to set their own speed and other settings. I also tried forcing the modules down to 266 with manual settings but dual channel still did not work. Please let me know what I should do to run dual channel mode with my existing module!
