  • Is there 184 pin dual channel DDR RAM?

    I have a motherboard that supports dual channel 184 pin but all the DDR2 (I'm assuming this is dual channel) I see online is all 240 pin. Where do I find 184 pin dual channel RAM to fit this board?

    Here is the board.

    DDR2 has nothing to do with dual channel. your board takes normal DDR RAM but if you stick in at least two (probably have to be the same size) your motherboard can be switched into dual channel mode. So there is no special dual channel ddr ram. that is something your processor and mainboard can do to speed up the conventional ddr ram. It is possible though that some ram works better in this mode than others and therefore you might wanna avoid cheap noname brands of ebay.
