Heh. guess so. I think the RAM is set to the default 1066mhz...gonna try to set it to 1600 once I have the fresh install done and see if it will boot fine. I VERY rarely shut off my computer completely...so I don't think I'll have to deal with the 1600mhz cold boot issue very often.
Well, I put the second stick of RAM back in and it loaded fine and detected it at 1600mhz. lol. Installing Windows now.
