Hi everyone. I have a Asus P5Q Deluxe mobo and a Intel Q6600 with OCZ Gold Series 2x1GB ram. The ram is supposed to run in dual channel mode but the bios and CPU-Z both say it's running in single channel. I had a Asus P5W DH Deluxe before the P5Q and it ran in dual channel. After I changed the mobo and cpu, I can't seem to get the ram to run in right. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

make sure the ram is not connected one right next to the other.that means dont pair them in the same pair of memory slots.

connect them like this

As above....
Look at the manual* for Dual-channel mode config
Try bios update.
if it's a good brand-call to check for advice
Look at BIOS setting, are they properly set and don't need any adjustment (voltage, frequence,etc)?
