Windows 7: increasing ram speed set channel to single

If it is AMD FX it should be a way you can set the ram to 1866 already if that is the ram you have

depending on the color of your ram slots if you are running single channel they are installed wrong also you can only get dual channel from AMD

If you have black and blue slots the black slots are dual channel the blue would be single

thanks for helping sorry for confusion.

when i built the rig, i put the sticks in and they showed up as dual channel (see my first cpu-zbefore picture) after upping the speed, they show up as single channel.

just looked...all slots are black 2 sticks are in first two slots closest to cpu/heatsink

The first slot with one stick is fine take the one out next to it and put it to the next one you have to go 1 skip then 1

then it will be dual channel that could be why you didn't see that 1866 setting

looked at the manual. looks like they are in the right slots. I have them in channel 0 slots DDR3-2 and DDR3-4
(I can definitely set them up like you are saying and the manual says DDR3-1 and DDR3-3 are preferred)

strike that. for dual, they have to be in different channels

got it. it's in dual now. put in alternating slots. I had thought that was the correct order, but when installing these, it looked like the DDR3 slots were alternated 1 then 3 then 2 then 4 so I thought I would need them in 2 and 4 (next to each other, but not next to each other numerically)

Thank you so so much for the help.

I will have to try 1866 again, but for now this will work.

looking much better:
