Hey guys I have a custom-built rig from a few years ago. I am not super tech savvy in terms of the hardware, had components suggested but put the tower together myself.
The lab computer at my work just got a ram upgrade and left 2 4gb sticks up for grabs so I was hoping to try them out on my home pc since I am only running 4gbx2 at the moment leaving 2 slots open.
I took a pic of the two ram sticks that I can include or just type up the details, they are both DDR3 but I know that is not enough to mean they will be compatible.
I tried just installing them in the open slots but nothing came up on the monitor after starting the computer.
Then I removed all of them and tried running it with the 2 new ones from my lab. It started up but went immediately to an ASUS screen saying that my overclocking failed and I needed to reconfigure.
So I reverted back in the meantime hoping to get some clarification.
I'll provide any further information necessary, I appreciate any help.
