    Default Memory Module Placement

    When installing your memory modules into the slots on the z68xp-ud4 motherboard I believe the manual states that when using the dual modules such as the ones I have. I'm using Gskill 2x4gb 1333mhz dual ram then you should place them in the 1 and 3 slots for best performance. On the other hand I've read where it is best to install the 2 dual sticks of ram into slots 4 and 2 beginning with the slot being closest to the cpu. I'm a little confused or does it even matter that much? Right now I have my 2 dual sticks of memory in the 4 and 2 slot positions. Which is the correct way if there is a right or wrong way. I've ran Prime95 for over an hour although I know that I'm suppose to let it run for about 8 or 9 hours to make sure it is stable. It seems okay but if I suppose to install the memory in the 1 and 3 slots to get the best performance I'll gladly do so.

    its always a staggered install,first slot coming from cpu socket to the front of case should be empty,then install a stick,empty, install a stick

    I don't know what manual you are reading, the one I read says it is recommended to install 2 midules in slots 1 and 2 (the second and fourth slots from CPU)

    For P67/Z68 you can use any slot combo really, and sometimes one or the other is better for stability or overclocking, it all depends on your board and CPU.

    So slots 1+3 or 2+4, from the CPU outwards.
