My two 1GB 665MHz DDR2 sticks: "Interesting" Atleast it's dual channel? lol surprised Warthunder and Kerbal Space Program run okay on it when I have the 1050ti in it, the ram and generic prebuilt motherboard bus speeds are literally bottlenecking it

Bruh 32gb of ddr3 ram cost like 200 bucks. That's half the value of my pc. My graphics card didn't even cost 200

Couldn't you just put something like "memory ranks, benefits of interleaving" at the end of the title? It would make it so much easier to navigate.

VSPROD 2 个月 前
Yes this is true because the cpu can access more banks but it will depends on how the game was coded.. if you own the new amd ryzen I strongly suggest that you should have a 4X8gb setup running at 3600mhz. This is the best setup and a lot of games will give more FPS than a generic or popular 2x8gb setup that most people buy..

Need help guys. What hardware failure do I have? Whenever I turn my laptop on it shows the NO BOOTABLE DEVICE screen. I always had to change UEFI to Legacy. But when I restart without unpluggging the charger, my laptop starts normally. NO BOOTABLE DEVICE only shows up whenever I disconnect my charger. Note: My laptop battery is not working.

Wait, I wanted more RAM for Minecraft modding, and virtual machine and I accidentally gave my PC more performance. Epic! I have 4 dual rank sticks for a total of 32GB of ddr4 3600 CL14. Nice. I will use RAM as a cache for AI upscaling when I can get a GPU for MSRP...

CPU Z shows all information including ram type, size and speed, etc. in windows 7 64 bit Sony Vaio svf15212snb. However, the same information is not accessible or not shown at the CMD prompt, run as Administrator, using respective WMIC commands. Only the ram size is shown, but no SPEED, no MANUFACTURER NAME, SERIAL NUMBERS etc. Why? I reinstalled the windows freshly but still same issues. Please help.

Okay but let's be honest... My motherboard sucks so much that there isn't any other motherboard compatible with my i7 processor and the ram speed is limited by the motherboard... So... I'll just change all my pc after some years, not just Ram modules... 😅

Don't worry, I got myself 1.2v CL16 Geil Super Luce RGB memory, real high quality, yet fairly expensive stuff, in fact I had to cut some metal off the hard drive case so it wouldn't press against the modules inside my SFF 7040 PC, yes the 180 watt Optiplex which I have several upgrades for: Redux r8 fan, MSI GT 1030 OC (fan version is 0.7 inches thin), the 4x4GB of memory I mentioned, and a Xonar SE soundcard for the 4x PCIe slot. It's perfect, this will be the most powerful SFF 7040 in the world (which is rather specific to that model).

I got the HyperX Fury RGB 2x8GB 3200mhz CL16 Dual Channel RAMS I just noticed they only have R1 BUT I got 2 more so now I have 4 of those sticks and I don’t feel a speed increase or something. With my Ryzen 5 3600 it’s totally fine, I don’t think people should worry too much about it, CoD Cold War takes a lot of RAM but how much does it improve my tasks tho? Having them on 2400mhz is bad tho, I can really feel a difference in speed of my system Please correct me if I’m wrong! I don’t want to talk trash

Also if you look at your motherboard compatibly list it should have the rank their.
so just curious can you mix said dual, quad ram with single rank ram sticks or do they have match
