SLI Memory not detected

I have two 9800 GTX+ video cards installed. I have SLI disabled in the NVIDIA control center and I have dedicated one card strictly PhysX. I have 2x2GB sticks of OCZ SLI ready memory and I just installed 2x2GB non-SLI specific memory. After POST I sometimes get a message from the BIOS stating that SLI memory is not detected....

My question is: Is this an issue? Can I disable this message if it doesn't matter. I haven't fired up any Graphics intense games yet but I will tomorrow to see if it's actually affecting my gaming.

Thanks in Advance.

SLI memory has NOTHING to do with SLI video cards. Its like Intels XMP.

Its just a marketing tool, SLI branded memory means nothing, like blazorthon pointed out.

Also RAM performance has close to zero effect on gaming. Faster RAM for gaming is also just marketing crap like putting heat spreaders on DDR3 1333 RAM. Completely pointless because it doesn't matter.

Unless you intend to game with an AMD Fusion processor high speed RAM shouldn't directly affect your gaming experience.
