Quick question about adding RAM to an O/C'd machine

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!

  1. Just try, if it doesn't work out you'll find out fast enough ;)
  2. It should set the new RAM to whatever current BIOS settings are. So if those settings are out of spec with the RAM, you may have issues.
