    Hey everyone, I just upgraded my MBP to 16gb of RAM from Crucial and my machine is lagging. Any suggestions? Before the upgrade I was running ~7000 on geek bench, now I'm running ~6700. The computer recognizes them both, so I know they're in right. Thanks for any ideas.

    Did you reset the NVRAM and reset the SMC after installing the new RAM?

    I reset PRAM and SMC. I'm up to 7149, but I would think I would see a little bit more of an increase in the score. And the comp feels a little slow. Checking out NVRAM now. TY for the response


    EDIT: I guess when I reset the PRAM I reset the NVRAM?
