I have heard that for 1155 socket, it is better to install ram in slot 2 and 4 than slot 1 and 3, is it true?

You install 2 same RAMs in the same color slots to activate dual channel. Some motherboards require RAM in certain slot in order to boot. What motherboard are you talking about?

it depends on your motherboard. Check your motherboard's manual and it will tell you which slots to use if you're only running two modules.
