Quick question about adding RAM to an O/C'd machine Tags: Memory RAM Factory Restore Last response: September 19, 2008 7:40 AM in Memory Share ettenra September 18, 2008 11:31:45 PM Hello Toms! I've got another 2GB of RAM coming tomorrow, do I need to return my system to factory settings before I install the new sticks, or will they be recognized and auto clocked to the same as the RAM that's already in the board? MOBO: Gigabyte P35 DS3L CPU: E2180 @ 2.8GHZ RAM: A-Data DDR2-800 O/S: Vista 32bit Thanks!

So if those settings are out of spec with the RAM, you may have issues. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
