Dual memory - which slots?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm using Asus P5N32E SLI mobo and 2 sticks of ddr2 1gb 800mhz ram, the mobo has 4 ddr2 slots, 2 blue, 2 white, to run dual channel memory, I've tried both blue then both white, but no one seems to know which is the correct colour slot to use for primary dual channel memory.

blue slots are dimm a1/dimm b1, white are dimm a2/dimm b2.

whiach is the correct primary? the blue are thicker than the white visually.

In theory the blue slots have a shorter trace length so would have less latency and should be used as primary with 2 sticks of memory. Real world answer is that there is always variances from board to board, slot to slot so stick them in the blue, clock them for a few days then swap. Use whichever perform the best.
