Hello,

I just got 2 sticks of 2gb DDR3 1333 for my Asus M4A88T-M motherboard and would like to know which slots I should put them in.

On the motherboard you have 2 black slots which is nearest to the cpu socket and then 2 blue sockets.

I would like to know if i should install both ram sticks in the black slots of have 1 stick in 1 black slot and the nearest blue slot.

Thanks :)

You will want to install both sticks in the same coloured slots. The Asus motherboard manual should say which slots you should put it in. I'm guessing the two blue slots, but I might be wrong.

Actually, either colors will work as long as you place them in the same slot color for the Dual Channel to work. Since what I've seen in the Asus website, it only supports DDR3 RAM without any details about where to place it.

As a comparison, observe this Intel motherboard from the same manufacturer:



Notice anything different?
