Generally no it doesn't matter but for those that want to run there memory in dual channel then it would matter

1st 2 slots get the larger memory....that info came from G-Skill.....Ihave 2 4gig sticks and 2 2 gig sticks...The 4 gigs go in the slots closest tot he cpu and the 2 gigs go in the farthest slots
