Patriot Extreme Performance DDR2 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC2-8500 RAM ReviewFormer staff writer , Tallman -
Well, installing these is really very simple. All I had to do was remove the power cord, open my case, push down on the push tabs holding my current modules in place, pull up gently on those to remove them and then place the Patriot modules over the slots and push down gently until the push tabs lock the modules in place. You should consult your motherboard manual to find out the correct slots to use if you have any doubts. Since these are rated at 5-5-5-9 timings, I just entered my bios as the PC booted up and entered these values in the appropriate place and rebooted. The whole procedure took less than 5 minutes.
Now with them installed, we are ready to go.
