In order to install the ram, and run them in dual channel mode, it should be in the same colored slots. So either you install the 2 sticks in both yellow slots only, or both red slots only.

ah, ok. I wasn't sure if it was like the P5N-E board where like one color slot doesn't work as well as the other (I think its the black that works better??). So either one, as long as it is in the same color. BTW, I'm ordering the rest of my stuff on Monday!

Nice!...let us know how it goes.

About the memory....it varies on either colored slots or slots next to each other, with different motherboards, to run the memory on dual channel.

I think it should show, that the ram is running in dual channel mode during post, when you first turn on your computer.
