  1. Your motherboard manual (page 2-12) recommends 1 stick, 2 sticks, or 4 sticks of RAM.
    Connect 2 sticks to slots A2 & B2. Buy another stick when you can so you can have 8GB.
  2. yeah well thats what i thought when i read it but why would the 3 sticks be in the QVL?
    Thanks for you help mate
  3. Yeah, I looked at the QVL. Doesn't make sense to allow 3 sticks and not show you how to install it.

    Connect the 3rd stick to slot A1 and see if your pc boots normally.
  4. yeah done and it fired up nicely would you still recommend i get another another stick?
  5. Yes. You get the full benefits of Dual Channel Memory with 2 sticks or 4 sticks.
  6. yep no worrys mate thanks for your help your a legend!
