After a recently resolved IT crisis I updated my bios to 1004 and found I was now working in "Dual Channel Mode" at 166mhz. I did not select this from the bios setting and am not sure whether this is a good thing or not. Could anyone advise me.

If you have 2 mem chips of the same size on this board it can use Dual Channel Mode which is faster.

dual channel mode will only show any benefits if your nForce board has onboard graphics. There isnt much point in pumping over 6GB of bandwith in a bus that is only 3.2GB wide. Mine runs in dual channel and TBH you gain very little but i suppose very little is better than nothing.

Thanks Rick & Sack, but I'm left wondering how it took a month to get responses...joke.
Cheers both.
