    read the installing ram guide in the guides forum. You questions are answered there. ALWAYS read the guide forum and FAQs! :)

    No, it wouldn't harm your computer, as long as all the memory sticks are compatible with your motherboard.

    Still, you should try reading the stickies first, thats the reason they're there. It just gets annoying if everyone starts posting a thread, and someone giving the same answers over and over again.

    The guides are not computer generated. They're written by techspotters like myself.
    I got tired of answering the same questions over and over and over and over again.

    Oh I'm sure you get tired of answering questions, but that's why we're here right. Why not just delete all forums and just put up guides.

    Some mobo`s are pickier than others when it comes to mixing ram sticks. It certainly won`t hurt anything to give it a try.

    See the Updating ram & troubleshooting

    I know it gets frustrating giving the same info over and over, I feel like that myself sometimes. There`s a few ways you can deal with that though.

    1: Don`t post. :p

    2: You could place a link to that thread in your signature, or in your post, it only takes a few seconds. ;)

    3: Maybe you could write a canned speech and save it in a notepad file complete with links?

    I use canned speeches all the time, especially in the security and the web forum. If I didn`t do that, I`d never be able to get though as many posts there as I do.

    Regards Howard :)

    & also the whole point of a forum is to archive situation & solutions found in the past, otherwise it would simply be like an IRC channel. It's like refusing to use the dictionary because you feel it's faster to ask someone what a word means. :p

    then we couldn't generate interesting discussings. The point of FAQs/Guides is to answer common questions that are asked all the time. 90% of the time they're asked by noobs.
