SODIMM version for DDR3 laptops/netboots etc: hotukdeals.com/dea…727

Hmm do I need 12gb of ram?
Edited by: "J400uk" 12th Dec 2010

thanks I think I 'needed' another 4GB - unfortuantely doesnt match my overclocking RAM but I rarely overclock now, so will do thanks !

Shame, cant even find ddr2 for this price, I got a deal on a quad core but basic motherboard, and will only handle ddr2.

This is an excellent price. Many thanks for the excellent post. DDR3 prices really are falling!

DDR2 will never go cheap again unfortunately.

Hmmm, typically just bought 2x 2GB DDR3 1333Mhz simmtronics the other day from 7dayshop, haven't shipped it yet even.

cancel your 7day shop order, simmtronics ram has really bad compatability issues, check reviews online!

Ace price on this ram!

I currently have 2GB of DDR PC3200 RAM in my desktop (4x512MB)

I need to upgrade

My mobo is ASUS A8N-E

I am totally clueless about RAM, can I put DD3 in my system or only DDR?

I ran the crucial test and it comes out as £135 for 4GB of their recommended RAM (4x1GB)

no, ddr3 won't work in a ddr1 motherboard.

I suspected as much, thanks

When looking for DDR RAM, how do I know if it is compatible with my mobo?

Time to upgrade to DDR3! Muahahaha

Your two generations of ram behind with that motherboard. So no.

DDR will cost a lot more than DDR3 as it's old and not being made in large enough volume anymore. You can check prices for the ram on crucial.com/uk. I wouldn't bother personally. What you're best off doing is asking for some for free on freegle.

To find out which ram is compatible simply use the system scanner at crucial.com/uk . It will scan your system and give you your ram options and prices. I think you might cry a little when you see the prices though lol.

I've already done that. You even included the message I wrote as a quote!

I'm happy to buy some off ebay, there is plenty of DDR1 on there, but how do I know if it is compatible?

The crucial test results show the following

Motherboard ASUS A8N-E
# Maximum Memory Capacity: 4096MB
# Currently Installed Memory: 2GB
# Available Memory Slots: 0
# Total Memory Slots: 4
# Dual Channel Support: Yes
# CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
# CPU Family: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ Model 3, Stepping 2
# CPU Speed: 2211 MHz

For example, is this compatible?

i am in same situation as u welshman 10, but i need 2 gb ddr1 pc3200 , very expencive on crucial , also is any one help us if there is any cheap memory available or any compaitable ,
thanks

2gb ddr3 is insanely cheap now - anyone know 4gb at a similiar price? Was thinking 16gb + ramdisk might be worthwhile.

First off I'm trying to help you and secondly the ebay link you provide is quite obviously DDR2. You require DDR.

You have DDR next there was DDR2 then DDR3.

You're looking for PC3200 which is DDR. (DDR 400)


Edited by: "fishmaster" 12th Dec 2010

I know you are trying to help and I appreciate it, I was just saying that I had already done what you recommended.

I'm not that dumb to know that the sequence was DDR, DDR2, DDR3

I made a bit of a schoolboy error with that ebay link, I searched on DDR and didn't realise it had also brought back DDR2 results

My question is reeally that, while it's obvious I need to get DDR PC3200 RAM, are they all the same? Will all DDR PC3200 desktop RAM fit in my mobo, or are there different ones with different number of pins etc? And what does the 400 mean (DDR 400)

DDR will fit as long as it's not an SODIMM which are for laptops. As for being compatible that's why you buy it from crucial as they are stating it is compatible and if it doesn't work they will have to take it back. DDR has 184 pins. It will fit and it should be compatible but you take your chances with ram.

I appreciate your help fishmaster

Try the ASRock N68C-S UCC GeForce 7025.

Very cheap mobo (around £30 - £35) supports a large amount of CPUs including the hex cores, although I wouldn't pair a hex core with it tbh lol.

asrock.com/mb/…UCC

Your CPU (9350e) is on the above compatibility list as HD9350ODJ4BGH

Please check the following reference for qualification of the above statement, thanks.

Thanks, I hope you get the ram sorted. I still run a few old pcs with 2GB ram and Windows 7. This laptop I'm on now is a Pentium M 1.7GHz (recently upgraded from Celeron M 1.4GHz for £7.99, thanks ebay.) and it runs Windows 7 fine. Although flash performance isn't great but that's down to the graphics chipset.

After a little bit of research I found that it uses DDR3 UDIMMs, which are unbuffered DDR3 desktop modules. However they need to be ECC registered I think so these are not the right type of RAM. You would need Unbuffered ECC registered DDR3 DIMMs for that server.

Welshman10,

I noticed i was in a very similiar situation to you last week. Girlfriend has an old pc that needed more DDR1 ram. what i ended up doing is getting some from forums.overclockers.co.uk - I posted a request on their Members Market.

If you are running Windows XP it wont use over 3GB of RAM, so there is no point getting 4GB (obviously). Windows 7 will use 4GB.

You can pick up 1GB DDR1 PC3200 sticks on the forum for £15 delivered. and you could prob sell your 512MB sticks for £5 each.

So if you are on window xp (3GB in total), it would cost you 2*£15 - 2*£5 = £20
if you are on windows 7 (4GB in total), it would cost you 4*£15 - 4*£5 = £40

Bare in mind if you get it from ebay make sure it says "low density"
http://****.co.uk/PC3…ac9

or else it is very unlikely to be compatible with your motherboard.

Ben

Cheers indieman

I thought it was 3.5GB on xp? So if you get 4, then only half a gig is redundant?

My laptop is fairly new and I've got 3GB in that, I just want to give my older desktop a bit of a boost, from the current 2GB.

What's low density mean?

The second to last post here suggests it doesn't need to be ECC

Backwards compatible with DDR2 machines?
EDIT: Guess it just depends on the machine.


Edited by: "imdave" 12th Dec 2010

Welshman10,

3.2gb is the limit. so im probably stick to 3GB in that case. unless you photoshop its unlikely you'll see the 200MB increase.

there is cheap DD1 PC3200 ram on ebay that is called high density ram. after researching around a lot it appears its not compatible with a lot of motherboards so id stay away from that. stick to the low density. There are loads of people on there selling the high density because they bought it from ebay but it didnt work with their pc

you have to remove the heatsinks to fit the RAM

-
Whatever was on sale at Newegg… which happened to be the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333.

Like I mention in the review, I had to remove the heatsinks to make them fit in the case. The heatsinks were so easy to remove, there's no way it could have been effective in the first place. I think the adhesive on your average sticker is stickier.

No. DDR3 is not backward compatible with DDR2 and DDR. e.g. DDR3 has 1.5V power, DDR2 needs 1.8V and DDR needs 2.5V power. In terms of standard motherboard slots also the notch or the key for different memory modules is at different place for the three type of memory thus preventing any accidental insertion in memory slots which can damage the memory and or the motherboard.

if you want DDR2 memory then try my link.

I think it doesn't need to be ECC then if that RAM was used.

Anyone knows this works with the following dell system
