Default Dual Channel RAM with DFI Lanparty mobo HELP!

I have the stuff listed in my sig. and I just put it together about an hour ago. I'm not sure which two of the three slots the RAM should be in to be running dual channel. Right now they're in 1 and 2, but I don't think it is running dual channel because the RAM has the activity led's and they're not the same (usually). I couldn't find anything in the manual that came with my mobo as to which to sockets to put the RAM in, if you could please help me I'd really appreciate it, thanks!

Generally with dual channel ram, the two that are dual are the same colour. Also the slots are generally positioned: || |
The two that are FURTHEST from each other generally run in dual channel.

So put them in 1&3. Also make sure that dual channel is enabled in your bios. When you boot up and it goes through POST it should tell you when channel memory you are using. (single or dual)

I had them positioned in 1 and 2 (the close ones) and it was single channel, but I switched it to the two that were furthest apart (1 and 3) and it is running dual channel now. Thanks for your help!
