I would like to ask the community if you need to clear or wipe the ram before using it in another motherboard or new build. Of course the ram sticks need to have the same socket type but when putting it into a new build would I need to do anything special before I use it? I was just wondering how it really works and also I was wondering if I should go for 16 gb of ram instead of using only 8gb so in my next build I wouldn't have to upgrade the ram or anything. I personally think 8 gb is fine for me as a student who is looking to use the build for studying but also light gaming. Thanks.
