Be sure to run them in slots 1 and 3 for dual channel.
Both sticks do work together. I have them side by side in slots A1/A2. They also work together side by side in slots B1/B2. However, when I try A1/B1 or A2/B2 I get bsods. The ram does suck with this motherboard. I have been able to confirm that with other people on the ASUS forums. I can't OC anything with this ram and I can't use the specified timings (even on stock!). I am returning these for GSkill ones, but I just wanted to make sure that my ram sockets aren't messed up for dual channel mode. I already know the ram isn't too compatible iwth this mobo based on all the bad luck I have had. They doboth work together and they can pass 10 hours of Orthos and memtest. That is how I know the ram still works. Plus, 2 gigs are registrered when I boot up and all that good stuff. But, agian, in dual channel mode, I get BSODs before I even boot into windows. I am not looking for a resolution to this becauyse I know it must be the RAM's fault, but I just want to make sure that my ram sockets aren't to blame.
Ross UK, yes I tried them in the same colored slots (I am not new to dual channel memory). But, again BSODs in dual channel mode. I do believe it to be the RAM. But, as I said above, I just wanted to make sure that something like that couldn't be caused by the memory sockets. Thanks again guys!
