In main boards , memory channels mainly are colored pair-wise , for example
Red-Blue , Red-Blue . One of the colors is Zero channel , the other 1
For Intel 1366 pin sockets , there are 3 pairs : for example , Red-Blue ,
Red-Blue , Red-Blue .
When memory chips are installed , first zero channels should be filled ,
then one channels , as in increasing order . Placing memory chips
arbitrarily will get a non-working main board , which is NOT a bug , but
production principle .
Another principle is when more than one chip is installed , they should be
the SAME in pair-wise , for example Red channels having the same size , Blue
channels having the same size as Mega or Giga bytes , and they should have
same Mega-Hertz speed .
The more complete and correct information may be obtained from your main
board manual . Another point is ´Supported memory´ chips list . When you
want to use memory chips , it is necessary to study main board supported
chips list and select among them .
It seems that your memory chips are correctly selected , but please insert
them as instructed by the main board manual . In other combinations ,
working is accidental and I do not know there may be other problems
associated incorrect placement .
Personally I never insert chips in a way other than defined in manual .
Some main boards may check correctness of insertions and it my give failure
indicator beeps , but some main boards may not check , but will not work as
you expected : Everything is working as single ones , but they are not
working in combination .
Thank you very much .
