nForce2 memory

I'm in the process of putting together a computer with a Leadtek K7NCR18D-Pro (nForce2) motherboard. There are 3 DIMM slots, arranged with 1 and 2 together, and 3 a little sepatated. I've got 2 sticks of 128MB PC2700 DDR memory. How do I need to arrange the memory sticks to get optimal memory performance from this motherboard?

Thanks in advance.

to get best performance... put 1 stick in dimm slot 1... and one in dimm slot 3 (the separate one)

this will give you the optimum performance of dual channel ddr :)

you can check most websites that benchmark and this is the recommended way :)

Actually its not in the users manual. I looked all over, in detail. That's why I asked here.

just do what I suggested and you will be fine...

and yes you are right... the owner manual may not tell you the optimum slots to use in order to utilise dual channel... you will have to use one slot from the 2 that are together and the slot that is apart from them... like I suggested...

for OPTIMUM performance you will be using the 1st dram bank and the 3rd dram bank..
