It should not matter, some older motherboards needed that you put a memory stick in the 1st socket to work, but they no longer need that.
Mystery is the source of all true science.

Check the motherboard manual.

If you have 2 sticks, it definitely matters. 1 stick, I don't think so, but I'd still look at your mobo manual. Takes 30 seconds.
