Hey Im looking to upgrade my RAM I wanna know if there's something I should do before I place the sticks in..Also should I place the 2 sticks with a gap inbetween?
And something irrelevant, for example if I wanna update my bios through q-flash should I have an empty flash drive or it doesn;t matter if I have addditional stuff except the bios file?

The best answer to your RAM placement question is in your motherboard's manual. It is always specified where to put the sticks.

Before upgrading RAM:
load BIOS Default settings; turn off PC; unplug everything; insert the 2 DIMMs in slots: #2 and #4 (channel A2 and B2).

For BIOS update it’s not a requirement for you to have a drive emptied of everything else except the BIOS file(s), but it’s always clearer and easier to find the needed file while being in the BIOS menu if there aren’t a bunch of other things in there (not to mention possible viruses).
It’s better to keep it simple. Format the flash drive before putting a BIOS file there.
