i got myself this board with a X3 720BE from the NCIX father's day combo sale ...
im gonna run that combo with 2 gb of ballistic dd3 ram ... in the manual its says that channel 0 = slot 1 and 3 and channel 1 = slot 2 and 4
but for dual channel you must use slot 1 and 2 ...
on the patriot memory site its writen that this board have better stability when 2 dimm are populated in slot 3 and 4....
which slot i put my ram in???
i have always think that for dual channel you needed 1 dimm on each channel ... (1 and 3 in my case) and im not sure that the ram will not overheat inc lot 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 ...
I'd go with 1 and 3.
Always follow the motherboard's instructions over the RAM IMO.
yean but instruction says 1 and 2
but channel 0 is 1 and 3?!?!? confusing
Most of the time those manuals are generic, not meant for specific model but different models. Most boards' dual channel rams run on the same color RAM slots, so in your case 1 and 2, which is pretty much what it is with AMD boards unlike with Intel boards that's one after the other.
1 and 2 or 3 and 4 is dual channel mode on this board. I have 2 gigabyte boards and in each the ram sits in 3 and 4, works like a charm and leaves lots of space for the cpu cooler.
