I may be mistaked, but aren't you supposed to put ram into like colored slots to get them to work at DDR? I might just be having a brain fart, if so excuse me :).

 

Nice catch. I'm not sure how I missed that. Something to correct when I get home today. Thanks!

Good catch. And I hear you about the brain fart. I'm pretty sure I had/have a mobo that was just the opposite: I automatically put the DDR2 into same coloured slots, only to find it wasn't operating in dual-channel mode. When I RTFM, it said I had to one in the beige slot and 1 in the black one to get dual channel. It's the only mobo I can recall that was like that.

Wow, I have never had a motherboard that had ram go into unlink slots, weird! The only reason I recognized the mistake was from making it myself :). I think 70% or more of the things I know are from learning from darn mistakes :D.

Thanks for the compliments on the build. I'm really enjoying this machine. I still can't believe how fast and yet quiet this thing is.

WMC w/MyMovies for now, but I'm going to be playing around with XBMC soon. I've heard good things about it and want to give it a try.
