Orange = stable

Yellow = unstable?!

 

I don't get it. So if I buy 2 x 1GB Matched DDR 400 sticks I can expect to see my system unstable 50% of the time!???!

Heh...

 

No...

 

Let's play a game! Called "Match those colored slots!"...where you choose Orange-Orange, or Yellow-Yellow...not mixed, otherwise you won't achieve dual channel, which is what you want.

 

Your system is only as stable as your able to tweak it...

err..ahem.... :P

 

 

Hah!

 

It will depend solely on which bios version you are using. Check the Stock Speed Database for a list of possible memory settings that you can use. After that and it's still unstable, tweak some of those options until it sets in. ;)
