Advice 1: How to check the frequency of RAM

One of the main characteristics of the operational memory is its frequency. The bigger it is, the better the performance of the computer. Of course, not only is this index that determines the performance of PC but it is very important. There are several ways to find out the frequency of operational memory.
How to check the frequency of RAM
You will need
  • - the program CPUID CPU-Z;
  • program AIDA64 Extreme Edition.

The easiest way is to look at the frequency of the memory on the package to her, of course, if any. The problem is that this package is issued when you purchase expensive models. Alternatively, you can watch in the warranty card, if it has a description of all the individual components of your computer.
2
But the best way to view the frequency of memory to use a special program. Only with their help it is possible to determine the actual frequencyat which your system memory. One of the most simple programs called CPUID CPU-Z. But, nevertheless, its functionality is enough to know the frequency of the operational memory. Download the utility and install it on your computer.
3
Run CPUID CPU-Z and click on Memory. In the opened window locate the section Timing. In this section you will find the option DRAM Frequency. Its value is the frequency of the operational memory.
4
In addition, you can learn detailed information about each module in memory. To do this, go to the tab SPD. In the upper left corner is the arrow. Click on this arrow and a list will appear of the slot of the connection memory. Choosing a specific slot, you can read the information installed on the module. If the screen is blank, it means that in the selected slot, the module memory is not installed.
5
Another program that will help to know the frequency of memory, called AIDA64 Extreme Edition. Install this application to your computer. Run the program.
6
In the right window, select the component "mainboard". In the next window that appears, select SPD. Then find the section "Properties of memory". In it find the line "Speed memory". Accordingly, it is the frequency at which your RAM. Also in this window you can see other options for memory.

Advice 2: How to find the model of RAM

If you want to increase the volume of operative memory (OP), you need to know the memory modules what the manufacturer already installed in the motherboard of the computer, their type, working frequency and other parameters. This will allow you to choose the memory module that will be compatible with already installed on your computer. Not knowing the memory model, you can buy OP, absolutely not comparable with the established.
How to find the model of RAM
You will need
  • Computer, CPU-Z, Internet access, screwdriver.
Instruction
1
To know the model of RAM you can use additional software or directly looking at the module memory. If you have a warranty certificate for all the parts separately, look for the RAM. There should be all information about RAM.
2
You can also retrieve a memory module from a port and look at it. Disconnect the computer from the mains and open the cover of the system unit. Find the connection ports RAM. Pull the latches on both sides of the slot down, and then remove the memory module from the port. It should be a sticker with model information.
3
If the label on the memory module was not or you do not want to open the system cover, can use a special utility. Download the utility CPU-Z. It is free and takes only a few megabytes. Install the tool on computer and run it. After starting, wait a few seconds until the program will collect information about the system. Next appears the main menu, where the main components are located on the top panel.
4
Select the component SPD. Then in the upper left corner of the program, look Memory slot selection. From the bottom of the label is arrow. Click on it and select the slot number of the connection memory. Once you select the slot connection in the program window will be information about the model of RAM that is connected to this slot (speed, type, manufacturer and other parameters). This way you can display separately information about all memory modules that are installed on your motherboard. If you select a slot in which the module memory, the screen will simply be blank. In this way it is possible not only to determine the model of the RAM, and also check the number of occupied slots.
