What happens if you put your RAM into slots other than what your motherboard calls for? If I have four slots and only two sticks of RAM, will the computer work if I put them in slots 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2?
But if I can get an answer while I'm at work I can order the different RAM I need at work instead of waiting until tonight or tomorrow.
The reason I ask is this: the heatsinks of the Corsair Dominator RAM I bought are too tall. When I try to install my TRUE the fan hits the RAM and prevents me from installing the heatsink. I can use only one fan in a pull-only configuration but I would rather just buy shorter RAM so that I can use two fans in a push/pull configuration.
And if it turns out that I can just relocate those Dominators to the other two RAM slots on my motherboard, then I can use two fans with my TRUE and continue to use the Corsair RAM without purchasing a new memory kit and going through the RMA process.
So if anyone can give me an answer on this I sure would appreciate it. I'd like to order my new RAM today if I have to go that route.
In my experience it all depends on the board. I've had some that don't care what slots the RAM is in and some that won't boot unless you follow what the manual says. But like other mentioned, it won't hurt to try it out.
