Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
My asus a8r-mx supports dual mode, it ha four slots for memory
different colors to differ the tipe of mode to use the memory ram
i need to find a guide to help me install .
Dual-channel memory support requires matching memory modules (identical) to be installed in pairs (2 at a time). The color-coded slots are for A & B memory banks.
Your MB (this is an OEM board, not retail) can use DDR 333/400 speed memory, so purchasing memory "kits" would be ideal.
If you plan on using more than 2 sticks of memory, note that the RAM will then run at 333 mHz, so purchase the lower-cost 333 modules. 32-bit systems will not address 4 GB (the maximum you can install). The OS will use the RAM, just not indicate it is installed.
Ideally, you would want to buy a 1GB memory kit (2- 512MB modules) minimum for Windows XP, or a 2GB kit (2- 1GB modules) for Windows Vista. You would install these two sticks of memory into slots of the same color. If you are installing less than 4 sticks of memory, choose the color closest to the processor to install them in first.

Your instruction manual for the mother board should have this, however, with dual-channel motherboards, you will want to fill the same colored slots together if you have dual-channel capable memory, otherwise you'll want to fill in the off-colored slots first. ASUS has it's manuals online, so if you've lost yours you should be able to download a pdf of it from their website.
