    Does it make sense for me to go from 2400mhz to 3000mhz in this case?

    I have a i5 9400f + h310m 2.0 + hyperx ddr4 8gb 2400mhz(single stick). This mobo only supports ram speeds up to 2666mhz. Rams have become quite expensive here in my country since the pandemic, but I found these on sale. I have the option to just get another single 2400mhz stick, which is...

    32GB Laptop DIMMs Start Showing Up at Retailers

    While some modern consumer platforms theoretically support high capacity sticks of DDR4, actually obtaining unregistered 32GB sticks has proven to be a challenge. Samsung's 32GB unregistered desktop DIMM that was spotted back in September is still MIA. In fact, I can't find a single 32GB...

    Looking for DDR4 ECC, 4 sticks.

    I'm putting together another 2P and I need 4 sticks of DDR4 ECC, 8 GB or 16GB sticks, matching preferred. RAM prices are insane right now, so I thought I'd check here first. I'm buying soon, so if you have some let me know ASAP. I would entertain 8 sticks of 8GB as well, for the right price.

    DRAM Industry Likely to Face Oversupply in 2019

    Industry sources are saying we're going to have a DRAM oversupply issue next year and I welcome it. They base their opinion on the fact Micron has ramped capacity and two DRAM plants in China are getting ready to come online. Hopefully, this will all come true and we'll get the price of DRAM...

    Dell T30 Memory compatibility issues

    I am running into an issue with my Dell T30. I got some Samsung RAM (752368-081). It matches the compatibility specs of the Dell T30 yet I don't POST when using this RAM. I am not sure if because this is HP RAM that it won't work in a Dell? Outside of that I have no idea why this wouldn't work

    Is is normal for XMP to create instability?

    I use 8GB of 3200mhz Patriot DDR4 on an Asus B250M. I got the sticks on a great deal last year, before I bought the motherboard - which only supports up to 2400hz anyway (originally I was going to do a Ryzen build, but ended up with a KBL). When I set XMP to 2400, while the system works...

    Request: Article/Testing on Ryzen Dual-density RAM challenges

    Greetings OCP-crew. I've noticed that most of the Ryzen benchmarking seems to be focused on 16G configurations, which means you get to use the single-density sticks, which run DDR4-3200 (and higher) with some tweaking. However, using 16G sticks, pushes you into dual-density sticks, with even...
