Hi Everyone,

This might be a question everyone has seen, but I have a question regarding adding memory. here goes.

I bought the 8 core machine that comes with 2 gig.

ONe on top, one on the Bottom. (both are 1 gig sticks) (in the dimm 01 slot)

today, i purchased two 2gig sticks.. so a total of 6 gigs.

This is how I install the RAM.

(top) (slot 01 and slot 02) are (two 2 gig)
bottom (slot 01 and slot 02) are (two 1 gig)

My question is... (did i do this right?) is there a different configuration that I am not aware of?

QUOTE Thanks

Don't understand why you only have 2 gb RAM. I just bought an 8-core machine and it had 6x1gb sticks. The base machine that Apple sells has 6gb??

Read chapter 3 starting on page 35
