Re: Installing New Ram Chip
Well, the reason that two slots are blue and two slots are black is because it is dual channel. Basically, it takes advantage of two sticks of RAM running in parallel. Right now, the two sticks you have in the blue slots are running together to give faster performance, so adding just one more stick wouldn't help too much. Getting TWO more sticks, on the other hand, and pairing them in the black slots would retain the dual channel mode and keep your RAM running fast. So, long explanation short, get two sticks of whatever RAM you're going to get. It should be the same speed as your current RAM, but I believe it can be a greater size, if you'd like.
