How much pressure does it take for RAM to click into place?

post #1 of 7

Well I'm in the middle of building my first pc now and wondering exactly how hard do you push down on the ram module to make it click into place?

Depends on the board, on my striker II formula, i had to put enough effort into it so that the mobo flexed a little then the ram sticks popped right in. Make sure you have lined up the edges of your ram with the slots correctly. Also pushing the tabs in on top of your ram can help too.

It will only fit one way in, there are notches, and it will not fit the other way.

There is a notch cut out of the bottom of the RAM. MAKE SURE that it lines up to the notch on the board.

Theres a notch, it lines up with the RAM slots, make sure its lined up.

Then push down, shouldent take to much force, it'll click down, and the 2 'hinges' on each side will go down as well, locking it into place.
