^^^^^^^^^^ 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.

Not sure about the memory interface, and Corsair's site doesn't tell me anything.

EDIT: oops, posted that bit in the wrong thread.

No one has stated the obvious yet

RTFM (Read The Farking Manual)



The reason I say this is because my board utilises A2 & B2 for two sticks in dual channel as opposed to the normal A1 & B1 set up.

Read your manual

It will recognize it, it just won't run in dual channel mode. It'll be a little slower, but no drastic changes.

Put the memory in the first green slot, and the first yellow slot for dual channel. I know, this is the only board I have seen where you can't go by color.
