hello.

i am beefing up my Dell i7-920 ddr3 memory.

i plan to pull the stock samsung 3X1gb sticks and replace them with OCZ Gold 3X2gb sticks.

since the OCZ sticks have a higher speed capability, will i have to monkey with any BIOS settings? or will the computer read and accept the new sticks hassle free? with the increased speed, of course.

any and all comments are greatly appreciated.

should be no problem,keep in mind that a X86(32bit) OS will not use the full 6 gb will need a X64 (64 bit )OS

to get the max out of the memmory you could always set it manualy in the bios

indeed i use the 64bit OS.

i am very much a rookie, and have not had to set anything in bios in my life. :p 

is it something i can feel my way through? can you advise me what to look for and do when i get there?
