A public service annoucement :p

Nanoprobe32 over @ XS pointed out that you may get ram that says it is matching sticks via the sticker on it and it may be improperly labeled.

You may check the part number with CPU-Z. Example:

If you also had a stick in slot 2 you would select it with the drop down and check it next. So if you are having problems running Orthos blend or general stability problems with dual channel make sure your ram kit is indeed a matching pair.

CPU-Z:
