    I'm sure that it does mention in the manual but I can't be bothered looking it up...

    Anyway, 1&2 are on 1 memory controller & 3 is on the other.
    So either 1 & 3 or 2 & 3.

    Need to whack them in 2 and 3. Set the divider to 6/6 and the top RAM timing to 11.

    I think it should pop up as default on most recent motherboards as they ship with a later BIOS (if they're in the right slots that is)

    Guys, either 1+3 or 2+3 will give you dual channel.
