Wow - have I had my memory in the wrong slots all this time?

Recommended Posts

From reading the manual - it appeared to me I was supposed to have my 2 x 1 Gig sticks of double sided RAM in the yellow slots (DIMM slot 1 & 3) but looking at this "guide" it appears that is totally wrong?

I also didn't think I needed to plug in the FDD power into the MB since I'm not running two vid cards. But apparently I should have done that as well? Maybe I do have more hope for OC'ing if I had this messed up all along?!

 

Please let me konw what I should have been doing. Especially why the manual said put double sided RAM in the yellow slots, but everyone else says two RAM sticks go in the orange slots.

 

Thanks for the help! :)

90% or better of the memory/cpu/board combos work best with 2 stick dual channel using the Orange slots...don't write the manual...don't know about the manual...

 

If there are power inputs to the motherboard it would be more or most logical to input the power and forget about how many cards are installed or how many of the folks do this or whatever...power inputs cost money and if the engineers and the bean counters agreed to spend the bucks for extra power inputs...mine get inputted from the day I configure the parts into the board...that of course could be the result of my logical train of thought...

I noticed this too in todays threads. But now that RGone has weighed in, i'm moving from the yellow to the orange.
