DFI NF680i LT Memory Slots (Orange or Yellow?)

It's been reported that you should use the yellow slots for increased memory bandwidth and the orange slots for higher clocks with 1T (Link - see post 30/31). So I tried running my Mushkin PC2-8500 2x2GB kit in both the orange and yellow slots to see if there was any truth to this... well, here are my results...

Comments:
  • Strangely, I could not get the board to POST with the RAM running at 1T in the yellow slots.
  • At 1100MHz running 2T command rate, there was no difference between the yellow and orange slots with my memory.
  • Oddly, when switching RAM between slots, the board requires a CMOS clear to POST. Then after adjusting settings (loading from cmos reloaded profiles for example) and rebooting, it would hang on POST code #75 for 2 minutes before rebooting normally. I'm not sure why it does this, but be patient when it appears hung.
  • As noted in my earlier memory overclocking article, 1T is marginally faster at 800MHz than 2T at 1100MHz (at least according to Everest... Sisoft Sandra has 1T slightly slower).

I personally didn't buy an organic bassinet mattress because my model came with the non-organic variety. This allows your babies to sleep close to each other without clobbering or rolling over each other. Check also for features like water- or flame-resistance.
