Thanks for reply. Thats where it is now but PcBenchmark shows it as under performing and was hoping id just got it in wrong slot. oh well...
thanks again
 
The DIMMs should be populated starting at the end of the memory bus on each memory channel (i.e. DDR4_1 or DDR4_2 on the GIGABYTE Z370 HD3P).

Your memory is under-performing because it is operating in single channel mode. You should be buying memory in pairs so that dual channel mode can be used.
