I had 512MB/400Mhz PC3200 effectively giving 3.2MB/sec bandwidth.

I have just stuck in a additional 512 exactly same memory.

Bios says dual channel, therefore should the band width be 6.4? using sisoft

im running on a P4 2.4

I have a TwinMOS DDRPC32 Dual Channel Kit with two 500MB SIMMs and a mother board with two banks each having two slots one orange and one blue. The questions is: how are the two SIMMS placed in the slots, one in each bank or both in the same bank. The colour codeing suggests that they should be both in the same colour slots but in different banks. Is this correct?

1 in bank 1 and one in bank 3 mate. Refer to your motherboard manual. If installed correctly, it should display a note on the BIOS bootup like "Dual Channel Enabled"

hope this helps. You don't actually need to purchase a dual channel memory kit to make advantage of dual bandwidth, it is a con to fool people into believing that it only works with a kit. Only difference is that the memory is tested!
