I have the above Asus P6X58D-E motherboard that has 6 memory slots 3 black slots and 3 blue slots they are DDR3. In the Asus motherboard manual booklet if you have 6GB (3x 2GB Rams) DDR3 memory like I have each 2GB ram must go into memory slot A1, B1, C1. (Which are all Blue slots.) But my question is what if you donâ€™t put it in this order can the performance of the memory decrease? Or you donâ€™t get ddr3 instead ddr2? I no this sounds like a stupid question but if it doesnâ€™t matter why do they say to do it like this in the booklet?
The reason for all this is I just installed a new cpu i7 990x and my PC has got problems it starts twice and 2 to 3 seconds later shuts down and only on the 3rd try it doesnâ€™t shut down. Why I say itâ€™s the memory is because I only see 4GB in bioâ€™s and in Windows even though 6GB is installed. So I changed the memory order to (A1, C2, C1) and guess what? The PC starts up fine without shutting off also I can see 6GB of memory know in bioâ€™s and Windows. Is there a chance of the memory slots channels being changed if there is such a thing that is.
