Dual channel Ram Setup

I have 2 PC's that I want to run dual channel RAM in question is which Dimm do I fit them in?

I have been told "use the 2 nearest the CPU, 2 the same colour and 1 & 3".....so I am not sure what is the correct way.

Even looked at the board manual but still not 100% sure.

Motherboards are......

MSI-MS6585

ASUS K8V DELUXE

Also is there a way of checking it is running in dual mode (splash screen on startup doesn't show the info on the MSI one).

Hope someone can make things clear for me.

As ever many thanks for any advice.

I have a dual channel mobo, Abit IC7-G, and the ram slots used for dual channel are slots 1 & 3 which are both the same colour. so use the same coloured slots but if in doubt look at the motherboard manual.

If it's like the Asus A8V Deluxe (939 pin) then it supports one pair of modules inserted into the blue slots on the board as a Dual-channel memory configuration (slots 1 & 3).

looking left to right from CPU the ASUS has-

1 Blue slot then 2 Yellow

Not sure about the MSI board as I am at work.
