    Hi all, im just building my new pc. I am installing my new s939 DFI expert mobo and was about to put my dual channel 2*512 corsair ram into the mobo and i cant work out which slots i am supposed to use!

    I have read the booklet and its confusing me, so if anyone knows?

    But dont you have to use slots 1 and 3 to get dual channel? Thats one orange and one yellow.

    Edit: No, the orange ones are 1 and 3 aint they! :p

    whats the point of having 4 ram slots on a motherboard if 2 are going to give you problems?

    The yellow slots favour certain types of memory, there more on this at dfi-street forums.

    Orange for low latency, yellow for high fsb. Thats the general rule of thumb.
