Talk about dumb I never gave it a thought to be honest I just though the different colours were for 3 and 6 Gbs or stuff like that.

I had better check mine out tomorrow as I think the whites I wired to the front docks or maybe the optical as my SSD has been slow compared to everyone else's boot times like I think the last time I measured it that was about 30 seconds or maybe more.

Thanks for the heads up mate I learn something new every day.

Be sure to have a look in your board manual, Motherboard Layout section. I added a snip of the page.

AddRAM does yours have a similar page?
