Question about EliteGroup ECS A780GM-A Motherboard - AMD 780G, Socket AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit
The manual does not note which Dimm slots are #1, 2, 3, or 4. It does recommend an installation pattern.
There are 2 orange, closest to the cpu, then 2 yellow.
Can someone advise the numbering scheme ?
The two closest to the cpu are DIMMs 1 and 2, The next pair are DIMMs 3 and 4 it is best to install in pairs, using slots 1 and 2 first.

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.
• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs
using the recommended configurations.
• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB
(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB
synchronization table on the next page.
• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.
• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.
