P5B Deluxe & Dual Channel Memory?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recall something about the P5B Deluxe manual or board has labeled the incorrect slots for Dual Channel Memory. I've also never had dual channel memory before. Which slots do I put my new G.SKILL ram in for dual chan? Do I have to do any BIOS stuff to get it to work as dual channel?

Thanks.

they are colored, yellow and black. Put a pair in the yellow and a pair in the black.

Okay. But for pair one, I put in yellow (slots A I think), correct?

Put your first pair in the first matched slots, and the second pair in the second matched slots.

Ex. First pair in A1, B1 and second pair in A2, B2.

I think I got it right, says Dual under channels # in CPU-z
I have 5-5-5-15 timings, which I'll have to adjust later. But I have to sleep now. :/
