from the looks of that page it looks like you need slot one (green) and then slot two (purple) for dual channel

Manual says the following:
Always insert memory modules into the green slots first, and it is strongly recommended not to insert the memory modules into the PURPLE slots while the GREEN slots are empty
But for dual channel it looks like you put one in GREEN and one in PURPLE.

well in that case, putting the ram in banks 1 and 3 will provide the dual channel. i assume :p

All boards are in the format of green-purple-green-purple (colours may vary of course).

If you look closely at the info just above the first table, it'll tell you that the dual-channel options are the combinations listed in that first table. i.e what Tuffgong just mentioned.

Please refer to the following table for detailed dual-channel DDR. Other combination not listed below will function as single-channel DDR.
Read it :p

MSI Reminds You...
• Dual-channel DDR works ONLY in the 3 combinations listed in the table shown in the previous page.
And again below the first table

I dont know if you mean all MSI boards, or all boards, but if its the latter then i have to dissagree. I had an Asus board that had 3 banks, banks 2 and 3 were used for dual channel ram. And they were all colored black.:suprised:

Ahh, sorry. As mentioned, I've never had a dual-channel board before, and assumed that all dual channel boards had 4 banks.

glad we could help...

All motherboards are not the same and you have to look for what that particular board wants. From what I understand most older boards used to be 1 and 3. Things have changed and all that really has to be done is look in the manual for each board...what is good for one motherboard is not good for all in the case of dual channel memory

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
