I ordered a dual-channel RAM kit an it will be here tomorrow. I was wondering if there is anything to installing it besides putting it into slots 1 and 3 and turning on my computer.

Nothing fancy to it, shove it in and switch it on.

All you do is install the ram into the ram slots on the motherboard and turn on the system, Neil is correct the procedure is pretty straight forward.



The only other time you might have to do anything else is if you get more expensive higher end gaming ram with a very HIGH SPEED data rate (just an example off of my head) ddr2 1200 pc2 9600 for instance. Then all you might need to do is up the voltage and or timings in the bios.

You will not have to worry about what I said above as I just wanted you to learn something. :)


*EDIT*
LOL @ my spelling error, but I fixed it.
