Well this is straight forward; you just take out your old memory and toss in your new pair. I will be installing the Ripjaws in a system with an Intel i5-750 processor, ASRock P55 Extreme4 motherboard, HIS Radeon 5850 video card, G.Skill 40GB solid state drive, Antec 775W power supply all inside the Thermaltake Armor A90 Case.
Now we start with the fun stuff yet again, Overclocking. Once in the bios you can see all of the settings are defaulted to 1333Mhz with my ASRock motherboard. After going into the OC Tweaker settings in the ASRock BIOS I enabled the XMP profile which would bring the memory from 1333Mhz to 1600Mhz that the G.Skill Ripjaws are rated at. With enabling the XMP profile it raised the CPU clock to 3.29 GHZ with the multiplier at 20x. With this I had to adjust it as close to stock settings which I was able to get it down to 2.7GHz. After running the tests at stock speeds I went into the BIOS again to tweak the settings to try to push it further. I was only able to hit 1760mhz stable with this motherboard and the G.Skill Ripjaws. Here is a Shot of the BIOS of when I was able to hit the max overclock of 1760Mhz on the G.Skill memory.
