When installing the RAM, there are two key things to remember to ensure success. First is to make sure you have your notches lined up. Second is to install your RAM in the right channels. Refer to your motherboard manual for the correct slots to use for Dual Channel setup. Open the locking clips that are at the end of your RAM slots on your motherboard.
