I recently installed more RAM in my desktop since I was right on the border of my 8GB during gaming or intense internet browsing.  I looked up the exact RAM I had ordered in the past from my newegg history and ordered another set of 2x4gig sticks. I installed the new ram and it was recognized and seemed to be functioning fine, but now I have 3-5s of initial lag in almost every program when i switch over to it or change tabs.  Also HTML5 videos take a few seconds before they start, and after resuming the video the audio and visuals are out of sync for 10s or so.


I checked my bios and the the cas latencies and voltages are correct, I was wondering if there are any other fixes to try?


My Build:


OS: Windows 7 (non genuine)

Case: NZXT Phantom 410

Mobo: ASRock z77 Extreme4

CPU: i5-3570k

GPU: MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G

PSU: Seasonic SS-750KM3

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw 16(4x4GB) (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314)


edit: my virtual memory is currently set to 5-7GB(windows recommends 24GB).  I only have a paging file for my main SSD

Sorry, but it is against forum rules to attempt to render assistance to members with illegal Windows installs or other indications of pirated/illegal software.


Excerpt:  "No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."


This topic is now closed.  If you have any questions about my actions...please convey such via PM to me and I will attempt to reasonably respond.
