"To reach the performance of Dual Channel DDR2, the following rules must be obeyed:
FOR A 2DIMM DUAL-CHANNEL INSTALLATION:
Populate DIMM modules of the same type and size on slots DIMM1+DIMM2 or slots DIMM3 + DIMM4
*DIMM1 and DIMM2 slots are made of the same color"
and they are side by side, i can take pictures if need be...
straight up out of the manual, professor.
please don't suppose to know everything, as logic itself dictates that there is an exception to every rule and "ALWAYS" is usually not the case.
O.P. the DIMMS should be the same color but they may or may not be side by side...read the manual.:amazed:
