I just got two gigs of OCZ DDR RAM (OCZ4001024ELPE) for my sig rig to replace my old, but faithful pair of 512 Corsair XMS. So I install the new RAM in the same slots as the previous ones. I boot up, everything starts but is slower then normal. I ignore it and go ahead and run 3d mark, and it only shows me having 1 gig installed. I check CCleaner to and it also says I only have a gig installed. I shutdown and test both dimms and the slots and everything checks out just fine. Stick both in again and both aforementioned programs say the same thing as before. So I download CPU-z and it tells me I have 2 gigs and that they are working properly. My computer is now slower with the new ram and it is pissing me off. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
