    I'm using the red slots on my Hero VII and no problems getting ram to 2800. Some folks have had issues with the red slots and switched to the black ones and ran what they expected. Would say try the reds and if they work how you like them leave em, if not switch em out.

    Ok thx guys, strange that they changed from the hero vi thou, as on that board it was indeed A1 and B1 slots, i thought the manual may have been wrong or in manufacturing they messed up the colours
