Dual Channel Question

  1. Hello,

    I am building my new computer and I have ran into a little trouble. The heatsink for my cpu looks like it could possibly be in the place of the DIMM_A1 slot on my motherboard. I have dual-channel ram and I wanted to know if I can install the ram in dual-channel config in the B channel instead of the A?

    Motherboard: A8V-E Deluxe

    Have you read your motherboard manual or website for more information before you post this threads?

    yes, it does not tell me if I could use either channels. Only that both are capable for dual-channel config.

    All right, I must apologize for the confusion about Dual-Channel issues.

    I have checked out the ASUSTEK website and i found some information on your question.

    The manual for A8V-E Deluxe stated that you cannot install a dual-channel ram into B, only A. Slot B is reserved for single channel ram. Sorry.

    I'll have to cut the heatsink if it goes into the first slot then.

    Thank you bushwhacker.
