^^^^^^^^^^ There you go sir.

You usually have 2 groups of DIMM slots.

And if your running 2 modules it's one in each group. As you've done.

QFT. My P5K is a bit more logical with the colour coding I think. You put two modules in the same colour slot for dual channel, on most other board, you put the modules in two different colour slots.

And if it doesnt work out, I don't think it will hurt you if you do it wrong, it just wont recognize your memory. I could be wrong.

It wont hurt your system and you won't kill your RAM modules.

You will be able to see during POST whether your RAM is running in single channel or dual.
