my mobo has 4 memory slots (dimm A1 A2, dimm B1 B2)i bought a matched pair of corsair memory and stuck them into slots A2 and B2 machine works ok.after reading the mobo book it says for dual configuration the total size of memory module installed per channel must be the same for better performance (DIMM-A1+DIMM-A2 =DIMM-B1+DIMM-B2)does this mean to run dual channel config i should have them in dimm A1 + dimm A2..i have tried putting them in these slots but the machine just beeps at me and will not boot.the memory was bought to run in dual channel config.any help would be great.iam away to read the book like i should have done in the first place...cheers

have you tried putting the ram in b1 and b2? check your bios and make sure there isn't anything mentioned about dual channel...sometimes it's something you have to enable in bios

To run in dual channel mode the memory should be in the Dimm A1 and the Dimm B1 slots.
