    Interestingly they changed the ram layout in rev 2.1/2.2, so DDR3_2 and DDR3_4 is the best choice for dual channel, ganged or unganged is up to you, it is said that for some application unganged is better.

    Your BIOS defaults to unganged, and when you load optimized defaults. You can set it to Ganged in BIOS, but I found that unganged is better for the Phenom CPU, and todays software. For dual mode the memory must be in the same colored slots. Dual is the 2 blue or the 2 white. 1 blue and 1 white will be single mode. This has nothing to do with ganged or unganged.
    I would also put the memory in the white slots It's farther away from the cpu. This is where it will run in dual channel and a little cooler. You get a little better air flow. Try it you'll see.
    Below are a couple of quotes on ganged or unganged.

    The Phenom has two memory controllers on the CPU. Ganged is setting both memory controllers to work together which allows data (that is being used by all cores) to await on the queue until they are accessed. Unganging means that the two controllers work independently. This allows them to work asynchronously with reference to individual clocks with their one or two Dimms. I would set your Quad Core to unganged.
    Long story short, ganged treats the memory subsystem as a single 128-bit bus, while unganged treats the memory subsystem as dual independent 64-bit buses.
    Ganged favors some single-threaded software, but AMD generally recommends unganged for typical modern system configurations, especially if you are commonly multitasking multiple applications.

    Not quite, single channel is neither ganged nor unganged, dual channel mode can be one of the two.

    The layout of the memory of this board has changed in revisions 2.1/2.2, as you can see in his pictures.

    No, they should be in the 2 white slots.

    Im unable to put them in the white slots. The one thats close to the cpu fan touches, and I would be afraid of melting anything?

    I would be more afraid from it bending the module than the heat. The RAM should never be too hot to touch let aloe melt anything.
    Would it touch it with the silencer removed?
    There will be, not much, but some performance lose running in single channel mode.

    No I can remove the fan, but I would hate to loose that:) And it shouldnt get that hot? I dont really mess around with the hardware inside, and I just wasnt sure.

    I didn't mean remove the fan, the plastic is what holds it or is it for noise reduction only?

    Wrong memory for that cpu. Wrong memory for that cpu cooling solution. If only you purchased the other motherboard revision rev. 1.0, or even a different model motherboard?
    You will need to change the memory or find another heat solution or motherboard. That or you will be running it is single channel. Sorry to see you are getting so much misaligned in your purchase.
    Click the lower White support tab on ↓Thermaltakes web site↓. They explain that the 60mm memory heatsinks will have issues.
