OCed i7 and new RAM

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, everyone ! My first post here.
Guess its a noob question, but i never OCed my rig, and the one i have now was already OCed when i bought it.

I bought new RAM yesterday Mushkin 3x2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 7-9-7-24 Radioactive.

My rig is OCed to 3.1GHz. Now i want to know if i should reset my BIOS to default values before installing new RAM ?
I have:
Intel Core i7 920@3GHz
Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
OCZ DDR3 3×1GB PC3-12800 gold edition
Im not planing to keep my old RAM.

Thank you in advance.

Yes reset the cmos first before installing new ram.

Sounds like you know what you are doing without our help

Thank you for your quick reply!

Ok i got that part, but wait when i start posting questions in other thread, because im planing to OC my rig again to 3.1GHz. Actually im not sure if i should OC it again or just leave it at stock values.

Finally i had some spare time today and decided to install new RAM and ofc there are problems.

When i install my new Mushkin RAM, system doesn't boot. I turn on computer, can hear fans spinning and that's it. Nothing is shown on display and monitor goes to stand by. Also i dont hear a beep, i usually hear few seconds after i turn on my pc.
I cleared CMOS and also i flashed BIOS to latest stable version i found on gigabytes website.

Should i take my RAM back to store and maybe try to exchange it for some different RAM ?

if you installed the ram in the slot starting closest to the cpu move them all over one.
