Hi

 

Normally you populate the slots by color.

 

In your case you have 2 white and 2 black.

 

Layout from closest to processor is 1-white, 3-black, 2-white, 4-black. You would populate 1 & 2 or 3 & 4

 

You can download your manual in PDF format here... http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/optiplex-760/diagnose

 

 

Best of luck and Please keep BC posted!

The colors don't have any bearing on performance you can choose to put them in the black channel or the white channel your choice.
