They're 4GB sticks
I'll have to check on the other attributes once I get home (currently in class).

You need to verify that the specified voltage of your RAM is set correctly in the BIOS. Probable set to auto.
voltage what levels am I looking for?
Different setting, both of these values are usually only adjusted by overclockers.
I went into the bios and changed the RAM from 200 to 600
Do I really NEED thermal paste or is that only for overclocking?

Actually I found that the cpu I invested in has suffered damage. 2 pins broke off and about 10 of them are bent out of shape and will no longer fit into the socket.
1. Go here ftp://download.intel.com/design/Pent...s/30056103.pdf and check on page 37 if the pin is a black one (VSS pins) if yes then you are lucky just install it and it will work. The link is for a 478 pin cpu if your cpu is diferent just go to your manufacter and check if its a ground/voltage pin.
2. take it to a jewely store and ask them to fix it with a 14k gold wire for fast transfer.
3. This is what i always do i just cut a UTP cable (ethernet cable) and take a wire and cut it at about the same size as the original pins have and put it in the exact motherboards slot where the missing pins are.
BUT cut it just a bit longer than the original pins cause it will shink in and then you have to pull it out removing the entire slot.(tip it is advised to cut it longer and then removing it and cut it again and again untill you feel it just about on your finger) Then install the cpu with the wire(s) installed on the missing pins location.
Gratz you fixed your CPU.
Tip for removing CPUs, run the computer for a while prior to removing the CPU, this softens the TIM enough to prevent pulling out the CPU when the HS is removed.
It must have happened when I removed the heatsink this one time, it pulled the CPU out with it (while in the locked position) the thermal paste acted like glue
