Probably not, but I can't be bothered to check.
Look in the j6k technical reference for the layout including a
diagram. Basically you have to match each dimm in A & B, and load from
the lowest to highest.
So for optimal ordering, you have either 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 dimms.
Loaded in 0a, 0b, 1a, 1b, ... 8a, 8b.
