I'm running 2 transcend 512 memory sticks in dual channel-mode.
On boot it says "dual-channel, linear mode"

Are there any other modes and how do I change modes?

Put the sticks in the same colored slots, red and red, blue on blue etc. typically it will be one slot, then slot empty, then another slot.

or if you prefer, DIMM1 + DIMM3 for the first pair then DIMM2 + DIMM4 for the second pair smile

As for linear mode, not sure. Could be the terminology used by the mobo manufacturer.

I'd like to know too, my Canterwood board only states Dual-Channel Memory Mode Enabled. Nothing about this Linear mode.

Linear mode is the only one available unless you have integrated graphics. I have the same mobo. Check out this link:

Good info Slim, thanks smile

Now what about the 875P chipset, this document seems to only be about the 865xx chipset flavors.

However, since I don't recall seeing any integrated gfx on the Conterwood, I may have to assume that it only runs in this linear memory mode wink

The 875p white paper is here:

Intel application notes can be found here:

A nifty tool for all 865/875 based motherboards (even shows the SPD info when the mouse cursor is moved over the displayed DIMMs).

Enjoy!
