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.

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.

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.

ok built it, and put it on 1 + 3 which is same color, cpuz says its on single channel, and like what is said uptop, 1+2 is ineed the choice for dual channel...bit wierd cuz its usually color coded. i guess msi is different....thx for everything guys...

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
