    I have my E6550 oc'ed to 3.18 and I just bought 4 new sticks of ram. Should i put my Cpu at stock speeds before putting in my new ram?

    Propably you should, and then clock the CPU with the memory up again.

    If your new mem is the same speed or faster than the old ( which I guess it would be) then it shouldnt make any diff ig the cpu is clocked. But to be on the safe sidem yes, drop it to stick and work up. I only say that because there nmay be a difference in the new achievable oc speed due to new mem having different settings- eg going from 5-5-5-15 to 4-4-4-15 or such like. Might find it goes higher anyways :)
