  1. don't mix and match ram... pull out the transcend and see if your system will boot. if it won't then the issue is the patriot ram. if it will then the issue is mixing and matching two sticks of different ram. you'll need to downclock the patriot to match the transcend's speeds and CAS... then you might be able to add the transcend back into the system.
  2. nope thats like trying to shove a 8 cyl engine next to a 6 cyl engine and trying to get the timing of the 6 cyl to match that of the 8 cyl. It just isnt going to work.
