Yes, the color coding is somewhat atypical from what you see on most modern motherboards. The placement is still generally the same, as you said - they are usually staggered, with placement apart from each other (as shown in the photo).

I guess the msi board I had wasnt running dual channel then.
As I said, the colors are atypical, but you still must generally place one DIMM in each Channel (one in Channel A, one in Channel B) to run in dual channel mode. Hence the name.

I stand corrected.
Thanks though now I know.
