Hey, I've had my ram in my motherboard for ages now, but my friend recently said that if I have them in different slots, my PC may run faster. I have 2 sticks of dual channel 512mb ram, and 1 normal 512mb stick. I have an A7N8X Deluxe motherboard, and on it there are 3 ram slots, 2 that are next to each other (1 of which is a black colour and one that is blue), and another that is further away (which is also blue). I am therefore confused as to where I should be putting the dual channel sticks, or does it not matter? At the moment they are in slot 1 and 2, which are the ones next to each other, however in CPU-Z its telling me the single 512mb stick is in slot 1 :/ Should I be putting the two sticks in the slots that are the same colour then instead? I basically think this because seeing as they are dual channel, they may have to be in the right slots to actually act at their full potential. Am I correct?
