MEM­ORY MAT­TERS

Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

NOW YOU’VE GOT YOUR CPU FAN in­stalled and plugged in, it’s time to in­stall the mem­ory. You should have bought a du­alchan­nel kit for your build. To in­stall this, no­tice the notch on the bot­tom of each stick, where the con­nec­tors are. You need to line these up with the notches in the mem­ory slots. Lift up the latches on both sides of each mem­ory slot, then lin­ing up the mem­ory stick, care­fully slot it into place, un­til both latches on ei­ther side click down se­curely. Ad­di­tion­ally, un­less you’re in­stalling four sticks, make sure you use the color co-or­di­nated mem­ory slots, to en­able dual-chan­nel mem­ory speeds. Un­der no cir­cum­stances should you be us­ing a sin­gle slot of mem­ory for your build, be­cause this lim­its over­all mem­ory band­width by half, re­gard­less of how much mem­ory it gives you.
