    dual channel ram problem please help! :-)

    i have 1gb of Kingston hyperX (2x512) and when I use it as dual channel ddr my computer randomly restarts itself, normally after about 3-5 mins, it must be a dual channel problem cos everything run fine when is in DIMM 1 and 2. i’ve checked that the ram is dual channel compatible. i doubt its restarting because of overheating as my case has plenty of cooling.

    anyone got any ideas on what cud be wrong, be a great help

    thx :-D

    You might also want to run Memtest. Try running it with the RAM in DIMMs 1 and 2. If that produces no errors, then try it with the RAM in dual channel.
