Hi folks,

Asus mobo M4A78T-E

I'm not very clear about DIMM slots.

I have 2 sets of A-DATA 2Gx2 DDR3 1333G dual channel ram sticks. Say set-A and set-B. Whether set-A ram sticks should be inserted on DIMM_A1(red slot) and DIMM_A2(black slot) and set-B on DIMM_B1(red slot) and DIMM_B2(black slot) ?


Full Manual on;

Dual channel mode is a feature of the motherboard, not the RAM. In the early days of dual channel memory, people were pairing up RAM from different manufacturers, different specs, mixing capacities, etc & having all sorts of problems. RAM manufacturer's soon developed "dual channel kits" just to make it easier....it basically takes all the guess work out of it.

Anyhow, if all the RAM you have is the same, it doesn't matter which slots you put them in.
