How do I know which way my RAM chips should be facing when I click them in?

I have a asus p5b mx motherboard and just bought two 2GB pc2-5300u-555 chips. I don't remember which way the one's I took out were facing and it seems I can click these in either way.

There's a notch near the middle (you can see it on the photo below) but slightly offset that matches the slot on the motherboard, to ensure that it only fits one way, Just line it up.

"Whenever it matters which way you connect critical hardware,
there is always a notch involved to guide correct connects and prevent the wrong ones.

Besides, it almost always matters which way you connect."
