Currently, I am running Windows 8 with 16GB of ram. I have an extra 2 x 4 = 8GB of ram. I would like to add into it.
Would someone let me know, I should install slot 1 (4gb), or slot 1 (8gb) and so on?
Slot 1 = 4GB
Slot 2 = 8GB
Slot 3 = 4GB
Slot 4 = 8GB
Slot 1 = 8GB
Slot 2 = 4GB
Slot 3 = 8GB
Slot 4 = 4GB
Thank you much.

Depending on the motherboard but we normally install RAM in pairs and the first slot gets higher capacity (ie 188.8.131.52)

I've installed the following RAM
Slot 1, and 3 = 8GB
Slot 2, and 4 = 4GB
Another question - do I have to re-set the manufacture BISO?
If I do, would you provide me with the instructions. I would really appreciated
