    I have 4x2GB at the moment, and the original 2x1GB. If I purchase 2 more 1GB simms from Crucial, what is the best sequence to install them in?

    Personally, I would do it this way...

    Riser A
    1. 2GB
    2. 2GB
    3. 1GB
    4. 1GB

    Riser B
    1. 2GB
    2. 2GB
    3. 1GB
    4. 1GB

    That's what I've done on my MP and it functions perfectly.

    Go for 2 X 2GB while you're there...

    there's a chart for MacPro memory configuration (hopefully it's included). Everyone's in agreement with the chart.

    I'm not!

    The 15GB configuration is invalid.

    There's a missing 10GB configuration too: 6x1GB + 2x2GB.
