you need to do no more than plug it in and fire up the PC. As for additional cooling, none should be needed. But, since you'll have things opened up, this would be a good time to clean out what's accumulated in your PS, fans, and HSF for the CPU. Your BIOS will configure the RAM. Once Windows has started, you should be able to look in My Computer/Properties and see the change. Windows will also adjust the size of your swap file. That's about it.
I have a custom pc with 512Mb of memory and want to add 1Gb to that.I?ve already
check at Kingston,Crucial and Gigabyte sites and know I need a DDR-333 memory.
I have some questions though.
1.Will I need to add an extra fan to avoid higher temperature anywhere?
2.How can I know if my existing memory stick will work with the new one?
3.Do I need to change any configuration in my computer?
