The single-channel 64bit message you saw almost certainly refers to the RAM running in single-channel rather than dual-channel mode (which would be 128bit). Either the mobo doesn't have dual-channel support, the RAM modules are woefully mismatched or not all of them are recognized due to some problem.
I don't quite get what you mean by the dual and single channel modes though the board specs allow for single or dual core CPU's if that is what you mean. Maybe the cores' had it!
Actually Corazon the sticks (4) are all identical Kingston KVR333X64C25/1G and I tried it with just two sticks in - it's just not recognising anything.
Yes I tried defaulting the BIOS and even taking the battery out for a while - am going to take it out while I am at work and give it chance to really default.
The SATA's I tried some old ones and new ones. I think the board is past it's use by date which is a shame as it would have made a really nice second tester. All the same I hate it beating me!
