I don't think it really matters. Personally, I'd install the RAM first with the old drive and stress test the memory. If it passes, that's when I'll switch the drives. That way, something goes wrong with your system, you can eliminate the memory being a problem.

Okay that makes sense lol thumb.gif do you know of any good ways to stress test? The only one I know is the "yes command", but I'm sure there are better ways?

It used to be that if you didn't have an SSD with Apple firmware on it, TRIM wasn't supported in OS/X. Did they loosen up on that?

Im not 100% sure about it, but I dont think OS/X supports TRIM. So if that is the case, would the "yes command" be the best way?
