Yeah I have another question about memory as well as a question about the mobo I have listed.
First the mobo: I was looking at it and the integrated ports on the back(usb, keyboard, mouse, ect) are kinda organized weird and I am not sure it will work in my case, but the board still has 13 great reviews from customers, none stating they had a problem with the boards port configuration. I have never built a computer before so maybe this is nothing, but it looks weird. Heres the link to the motherboard and theres a picture on this page you can enlarge showing the mobo's ports linkage
and there is a picture of the back of the case I am planning on using at this link linkage
My other questions are about memory.
1. Say I have two identical memory sticks of the same brand in two slots running dual channel as well as 2 more identical sticks of the same speed and type but a DIFFERENT brand then the first two, in the other two slots. Will they run dual channel with the 2 different brands(each brand in 1 set of dual channel slots) or do all 4 need to be the same brand?
2. If I have two 512mb sticks both in one same color slots for dual channel, but a third chip in one of the remaining two slots will that stop the first 2 sticks from running dual channel?
I hope those last 2 questions made sense
