I bought a new PC, and all the parts arrived today! Awesome!
Except the RAM. It hasn't even shipped yet and won't be here until Monday. :(
In the meantime, would it be possible/advisable to use my old DDR2 800 RAM (4GB) until my shiny new DDR3 shows up? Both are 240 pin, but I wasn't sure if DDR3 slots were backward compatible w/ DDR2. Sometimes they move the little slip on the stick around..
Here's the old RAM:
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ
And here's the new RAM:
Corsair XMS3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMX8GX3M2A1600C9)
And in case it matters, here's the motherboard I got:
ASUS Micro ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboards H97M-E/CSM
I'm formatting and moving over the SSD in my existing PC, so before doing all of that I wanted to make sure the old RAM would work too. Thanks for any help you guys can provide!
Last year I upgraded my macbook ram from 8gb to 16gb. (It's a Macbook Pro 13' mid 2012 - model A1278)
It originally came with 2x4gb DDR3, and I replaced with 2x8gb DDR3L, as advised by a friend and after checking several online foruns.
May 19, 2016 Computer memory is divided into two main types: DDR3 and DDR4. The former is older, having debuted back in 2007, while the latter only hit the mainstream recently, with Intel's X99 platform in. Go to “Performance” where you can see the options for CPU, “Memory”, Disk, etc. You should be able to see DDR3/DDR4 in that “Memory” menu. It’s right there in the first screenshot but you have to look to your extreme top right (not captured in included screen for space reasons). Re: Maximum RAM code for Windows 10. Sep 12, 2014 DDR5 is actually a variant of DDR3 in that it uses the same slot but can fill and empty its available RAM storage about 10% faster then DDR3 RAM. So not much difference. As to why they didn't call it DDR4 instead of DDR5 falls to the same place as why Microsoft went from Windows 8 to Windows 10. Do yourself a favor and buy the Kingston DDR3L memory and save yourself the headache, I have a new 17r 3737 only 4GB memory made by Kingston, went on amazon and found Kingston 8GB DDR3L 1600mhz and slapped it in and no problems, shows I have 12GB memory and runs faster with Windows 8.1, so I wouldn't install just the DDR3 in yours, I say you'll be looking at problems. Sep 29, 2018 DDR3 And DDR4 Speeds. DDR3 offers transfer or read/write speeds up to 2133 millions transfers/second while DDR4 offers transfer or read/write speeds up to 3200. The speed for DDR is also measured in GBs transferred per second where DDR3 can transfer up to 14.9GBs/second, and DDR4 can transfer up to 2.6GB/second.
About 6 months later the macbook died and I had to get the logic board replaced.
The thing is: 'the guy' at the repair shop said the ram was probably the cause, because using a low-voltage ram on the system originally designed to use DDR3 ram caused the system to have 'extra energy running around' and it fried the logic board.
I checked around online in all kinds of foruns and didn't find anyone talking about it. Lots of posts says it's fine to replace DDR3 with DDR3L. My friend still uses his macbook and nothing happened.
I know you want me to use chrome because it is your product, but you offer a choice so it would be nice if that choice worked 😊. Mail for mac app. Also, my saved safari things don’t all translate over to the safari that pops up within the app. It adds an unnecessary step every time I look at things from an email.
Has anyone heard about this?
Can We Use Ddr3 In Ddr4 Slot
The macbook is currently using its original DDR3 ram, but I still have the 2xDDR3L with me and I don't know if I should replace it again.
Can Ddr4 Fit Ddr3
Is this a good question?
