Memory When purchasing memory, can someone tell me what is meant by PC 2100, PC 2700? On my memory stick I can see a PC2700, so does this mean I have to stick to a PC2700 memory stick?

    The number is the speed of your RAM Manufacturer and model # of your motherboard will help me decide if you can go with faster memory.

To answer your first question, yes, anytime you buy memory it has to match..it must be PC2700.

what that means is the throughput speed of data your machine can handle. It has to do with the memory type, the speed the data travels, and the clock speed. Every motherboard has a clock that pumps data at a certain rate.
So let's say your clock speed is 167MHz. You have DDR RAM which means Double Data Rate. DDR sends data on the up cycle of the clock and the down cycle of the clock. So you are really sending data at (2 x 167) 333MHz. Now data travels in 8 byte chunks. So you multiply 8 x 333 = 2.6666 or 2700MBps-Mega Bytes Per Second or 2.7GBps. So voila PC2700 RAM stick. So that is why you have to always by the same RAM so it will match your clock speed. Well you asked :)...

Asrock p4s61, tried 1gb pc3200 to max memory to 3gb, won't boot.


you quote one of your memory sticks as being pc 2700 when earlier in your text you qoute pc3200.

Firstly pc 3200 is 400 mhz clock speed memory.Secondly, pc 2700 is 333mhz clock speed and you acnnot mix the two on the same board. Thirdly does your board support 3ghz anyway. If you are running a board at 400mhz, pc2700 memory will not run at 400mhz.

Solution, take out the pc 2700 memory and all will be well.

RAM Memory


If the memory modules are PC2700 or higher, they need to be installed in Slots 2 & 3, slot 1 only supports PC2100 & lower. I had the same problem with mine. Also, make sure the BIOS is set to "AUTO" under the RAM settings. Hope this helps.

Was your 1gb stick DDR PC2700? Most likely that is why. Although the pin set are both 184 pin, you will be downgraded to the lowest speed available, meaning PC3200 (DDR400) will downgrade to PC2700 (because PC2700 can't be upgraded to PC3200).
