DDR ram is a funny thing. DDR ram is capable of 2 instructions per clock cycle so we say that 2 * 200mhz = 400Mhz FSB (DDR400). Because Intel quad pumps their bus we can get 4 instructions per clock cycle so 4 * 200mhz = 800Mhz FSB. The bus and usually the ram run at the system clock speed but because it does 4 instructions per cycle they saw fit to say it is 800Mhz.linderman said:Hello Proff:
In order for a mobo to have a 800mhz front side bus it has to support dual channel mode / otherwise how could the board turn 400mhz memory into an 800mhz bus ?????? 400 x 2 = 800 ?????
until someone corrects me / I would say your system is a dual channel capable system
