Hi,

i have read the MOB manual but i am confused as to which slots to put my memory. Can someone help me?

I have the following MOB: Gigabyte B550 AORUS Elite Ax V2 . I think this is the web site for it:https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B550-AORUS-ELITE-AX-V2-rev-10#kf

The memory that i have is as follows: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18D-32GVK

i have two memory sticks (not sure of terminology) of 16G each. Total of 32G.

A lot of motherboards do A2 and B2 very common for dual channel memory. I wished they would color code them, or if you always fill up all 4 slots you never have to worry about the order :).

Good luck with your build.

More like 99% of motherboards. And the reason is that the cooler can block the first slot and you can't have dual channel if one of the slots can't be used.
