That is correct.

It's confusing, but just remember you want one stick on Channel A and the other on Channel B and the numbers should match. (i.e., NOT A1 & B2 or A2 & B1) You've got it right if they have exactly one slot between them.

Of course, I had a board years ago where both the board and the manual were labeled wrong. The thread at the manufacturer's forum must have run hundreds of pages long.

Ok so i checked so far no bsod gonna try to run few programs to see if it causes any bsods by the way is there any free programs or anything that i could do to possibly put computer under stress while i am either slpeeping or at work so i can try to c if it will crash instead of just letting it run idle while i am away and by the way i was wrong i do not have memory in blue slots they are in black slots

There are several good CPU stress programs, but I wouldn't run them unless you can keep a constant watch of them. They will create a lot of heat and need you to keep a close watch on them. You can use prime95, Intel Burn test or AIDA. AIDA is not free, but I believe you get a 30 day trial of it. But all stress tests cause the CPU Temps to go very high and very fast and need constant monitoring with a good temp monitoring program.

CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Yes, driver verifier should be disabled first. Did you give it time to see if it crashed other than letting it idle? Also, usually with Prime or AIDA I would run them for a good 8 hours or more. I always run mine for 18-24 hours.
