Yes I was trying to run the new sticks only. But I didnt get the viper series, i got the g-series http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145222
Those are the ones I had before
I cant find the patriot sticks i bought on Newegg but they are 9-9-9-24 which is the same as what my old sticks are.
So to clear my CMOS just reset to factory defaults from BIOS, then shut down and install new sticks? any steps i missed?
