Default RAM Questin

Hi everyone,

Just built a new rig a couple weeks ago and I just thought of a question.

I bought a 2 gig Dominator kit 2x1Gb, do I put the RAM cards in one set of modules, one in the black and one in the blue. Or do I put the RAM in two different ones, black and black?

I know, how the hell did this guy build a comp.

Thanks for the help,

Marine_Bryan

You usually put them in the same-colored slots so they run in dual-channel mode.
