I matched the type (DDR3, 8500) but my system is clearly not happy with the change. Twitchy, stalls, seems generally unstable. Remove the new RAM, things return to normal.
Hate to just dump the 8gb I already have... is mixing + matching a bad idea? Is there anything I can do (besides send the new RAM back)?
Sorry if this is a dumb Q, but this is my first attempt at anything hardware-related.
