technosmurf Posted July 12, 2006 Posted July 12, 2006 I recently built a system using a 2x1gb kit of OCZ EB Plats and an DFI expert and, as advised to do so, put both sticks into the orange slots. I had trouble installing windows due to stalling, crashing, so then I took out the one stick closest to the cpu and left the other one inside the orange dimm farthest away from the CPU. After that it worked perfectly, unfortunately I really wanted to ake use of that extra stick I had taken out before and decided to try placing it back in such a way that it would register both dimms of ram and not crash on me. After a few combo's and a few fun no posts, I finally got the board to accept both sticks using a combo of one stick in the orange slot farthest from the CPU and one stick in the yellow slot farthest from the CPU. From what I've read over here its a pretty unusual combination. By doing this am I hurting the performance of the ram in my system, and if its possible is there a way I can check to see if it is?
