M2a_VM Memory placement if I have 2 sticks of ram? Tags: Memory RAM Last response: May 15, 2009 12:39 AM in Memory Share GrievousAngel May 14, 2009 8:24:41 PM I have a ASUS M2A-VM mobo running an AMD Anthon 64 4000+ 2.1GHz Dual Core CPU's. Where shouold I place two sticks of 667MHz ram? One in A1 + A2 or A! + B1? I currently use A1 + A2 as I thought that's what the manual suggested but system reports 'single channel'. Should I not config it as A1 + B1? That implies Dual Channel correct? Thanks.

According to the SPD tab in CPU-Z , are both modules identical? Satsuki May 14, 2009 10:33:52 PM Quote:If you have 2 modules, they should be installed in slots having the same color. According to the SPD tab in CPU-Z , are both modules identical? This is not always true. You will have to consult your the manual for your motherboard. If you don't have one, you should check out your motherboard's manufacturer's site. They should have it.
