Hello guys,

Today i brought a new motherboard "a7nx8" socket a now i have installed my 2200+ in but when i boot up it says its only a 1800+, the jumper is set to 266/333/400 but its still running at 200 fsb? should i manuly increase the fsb in the bios or should it of done it automaticly?

Secondly Does it matter what slots i stick my ram in to run at dual channel? (3 slots) i have stuck one in slot 1 and 2 and its saying at boot up its running at 100mhz and single channel.

Are the ram simms the same brand and speed. Look in the manual on how to make it dual channel. It might be slot 1 and 3. If the slots are coloured like purple/blue put the simms in those slots.

Its not running in dual channel if it says single channel.

well if it is actually an Asus a7n8x

asus cpu support (http://www.asus.com.tw/support/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx)

Probably needs a bios update to detect the speed automatically.
You really need to read the motherboard manual to find out.
