Are you using the asrock dual sata 2? I tried 1t & I got reboots when opening word or going to a flash site. If so, what bios are you using?

i read up a little bit about dual channel ram and it seems that you need either one stick or two identical sticks for it to be enabled. my configuration (1x 1gb stick from G-Skill and 1x 512mb stick from corsair) isnt qualified.

No, you need two sticks of the same capacity and bank configuration.

so...ok, i just removed my 512mb stick and CPU-Z still wont display the "memory" tab (as in, it only shows memory size)

Nope, I am using a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D. Will do over 330HTT and has more overclocking options than anyone could ever use :) I just put the G.Skill ZX RAM in and it defaulted to 1T.

what exactly does that "1T, 2T" thing mean?

This relates to commands per clock (CPC). The 1T option is faster, however cheaper memory may not be able to run stable at this speed.

Clock cycles per command, actually :)

I also don't completely trust the idea that cheap memory can't run 1T, given that Intel platforms haven't (or at least, didn't up through 875/915) have the ability to alter the command rate. I think it has rather more to do with bad board design.

Yeah, I agree, bad board besign. I have good memory(corsair xms), but an el cheapo, super budget board. I will probably get a new mobo when vista comes out. The asrock dualsata allowed me to upgrade to an amd based system & keep my old agp card until I had enough saved to buy my pci-e card. It has served me well(stable for the most part), but I would like a better board down the road, maybe one that supports sli.
