I currently have 2 sticks of 512MB corsair XMX Pro DDR400 memory modules. I want to install a new heatsink on my cpu, a zalman, but because of the LED's on the memory sticks heatspreader they don't fit under the new heatsink (they prevent it from laying flat).
I was wondering if i could use these in the 2 extra slots above, as then they would fit or are they only designed to work in a particular order, i.e bank 1,2,3 etc?
I don't want to try it out without asking as i don't want to go spreading thermal compound on the cpu and taking the old heatsink mounting off the mobo only to find it does't work. Being prepared is the best thing imo :)
