My System Specs

Default

I cannot remember which site had it (over a month ago now), but there is a reason for the DIMM layout. Apperently, Intel spec's mandate this because of the 4 channels and the associated latency. To minize the latency they space all DIMMs as close to the socket as possible.

EDIT: I still shake my head at the PCI slots at some of the boards, seriously PCI?
