Memory Not Running Dual Channel

Recommended Posts

my new build (see specs below) is not running dual channel mode. i'm really confused on what to do. for some reason my memory doesn't like to be placed in dimms 1 and 3 and only prefers 2 and 3, but i don't think those dimms are dual channel mode.

 

here is my board

try 1 and 2 , the neo series has a weird way of doing dual channel, at least mine does...

thanks for the reply. i've literally tried every combination there is and for some stupid reason, my motherboard only likes memory in dimms 2 and 4 (purple). if i try any other one, it won't boot.

 

should i try updating bios??

updated bios to revision 1.9 it helped a lot of other issues i was having. went into cpu-z and the memory read dual channel at 200mhz. but then suddenly switched to single at 166mhz. frustrating. also tried all the dimms and still no bueno on the dimms 1 and 3, but 2 and 4 still work great. wtf??
