Solved

Are there any parts that MUST be changed or replaced when making a motherboard upgrade?

I recently built a computer with the following parts in it
Sentey stealth case
Foxconn H55MXV socket lga1156 mobo
Intel i5 750 cpu
MSI GTX 750TI gpu
EVGA 430w PSU
Arctic alpine 11gt rev .2 cpu cooler
8gb Patriot signature ddr3 ram
Windows 7 OS

I want to upgrade my mobo to an ASUS P7H55-M Pro so I can get another 8gb of ram but I am unsure if I need to replace or change any other parts when making the upgrade.
Pease help me somebody.

    No , you don't need to change any part in your build

    Just get same bus speed ram so it won't slow the old rams .
  2. Basically only a new bit of thermal compound for when you move the CPU, will want to clean off old and apply new ;)

  4. If thinking of mixing new DRAM with old, may want to take a look at Item 2 (there are no guarantees when trying to mix) here:
