Does Intel DH61BF motherboard supports 4GB 1600Mhz RAM ?


OK, I was looking for a solution, but hardly got anything that clarify if it's compatible or not. But what I did find out is that if you install a 1600MHz memory stick, this one will clock down to 1333MHz in order for the MB not to crash. Here is a C/P.

Part #: 2xCT102464BA160B • 16GB (2x 8GB Kit) • DDR3-1600 - 1600Mhz - PC3-12800 • CL11 • Dual Rank • Non-ECC • Unbuffered • 1.5V • 16-chip 512Mx8 • Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty • This 1600 MHz module is programmed to clock down to 1333 / 1066MHz where the system requires it.

Hello is lg R490 processor upgradable to 3rd generation and since it is using ddr3 1066mhz can you replace it with 1333mhz


you can't upgrade the processor due to mainboard compatibility, however, you can still upgrade the RAM to 1333mhz

Usually, it is not possible to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. In rare cases where it is possible the upgrade usually costs nearly as much as a new laptop.
However, you can significantly upgrade the laptop's performance by adding more memory and by replacing the old slow hard drive.
Your Sony VGN-Z250 is usually supplied with 3GB of RAM memory. You can replace the existing memory modules with a new kit consisting of 2 x 2GB modules (total 4GB). The type of memory you need is "SO-DIMM" (meaning laptop size) DDR3 - 1066MHz (you may use 1333MHz memory but it will only run at 1066MHz speed). I would suggest either G-Skill or Crucial brand memory. And you can replace the hard drive with an SSD. You'll be amazed at the boost this provides, seriously. I would suggest either Samsung 840 EVO or Sandisk Ultra for an SSD. Both offer super-fast performance compared to your old spinning hard drive, and both have very low power consumption so they run cool and give your laptop a few extra minutes of battery power. You can clone/copy your existing Windows setup onto the SSD using free Macrium Reflect software or free software from the SSD maker's website. Or, you can do a fresh install of Windows.

Model type & number of 512mb or 1gb ram memory for


There are many different specifiactions for RAM.
Firstly is it Desktop or Notebook RAM that you are looking for.

Below is a list of RAM specifiactions:
DDR
DDR2
DDR3

Now these RAM specifiacations run at different clock speeds.

For example:
DDR 400MHz
DDR2 800MHZ
DDR3 1333MHz

What I need you to do is to tell me the following:
What is it to be used for, Desktop or Notebook/Laptop?
What is written on the RAM modules? You may need to remove one from your computer or use a software program like CPU-Z to check what it is you are running in your computer.

I recently added 2 sticks of 1 Gb Ram to my desktop, to now have a total of 4 1 Gb sticks. This newly added memory is PC2 @ 5300Mhz speed. The older 2 sticks of 1 Gb memory are PC 2 @ 6400 speed,...


It depends on what you would like the end result to be. If you need to multi-task, and have 10 windows running at once, go with the 4GB @ 5300 because while it might take a little longer your computer will still be able to handle all the information. However if you are just using it for light browsing and would prefer speed over bulk (when it comes to data processing) go with the 2 @ 6400. I don't think it would be worth it to get 2 more @ 6400, technology is advancing so fast. If you have 60 bucks you can upgrade to two 4GB @ 10600 (8GB total for $60) 1333MHz PC3. Lookup Corsair XMS3 4GB RAM.

My system has been running EXTREMELY slow, even after reformatting the HD. I'm guessing that the memory is the issue and if it is I need all new, up to the max which should be 4gig


If you are waiting an unusually long time to open applications, or to access data on your hard drive (open/save files), then you probably need a RAM upgrade.

If you are running Windows, you can open the task manager (press Ctrl + Alt + Del) and go to the 'performance' tab. This will tell you how much RAM you are using. My recommendation is to run all the programs you usually use on a regular basis (for example, a casual user might open an internet browser with 5 tabs, a word processing application, and a music player, an artist would open and edit a large, uncompressed image, etc). If you are experiencing a low amount of free memory at this point, you should definitely consider buying more RAM. The lastest edition of Windows requires at least 2GB of memory in order to run the x64 version of the operating system. It is typical for a casual user to have at least 3-4GB of RAM in their main computer, and is an absolute necessity for enthusiasts.

Another issue (depending on the age of your computer) could be in what /kind/ of RAM you have. All memory is rated for 'speed', measured in MHz; the faster your memory, the better the performance. 1333MHz is a very typical speed, and should provide plenty of speed. Anything below 1066MHz is most likely an older technology, and therefor delivers slower performance. Depending on your motherboard, you may not be able to upgrade to faster RAM.

There are many, many options when it comes to purchasing RAM, so you should be able to find a price that suits your budget.

I have a m4a78lt-m motherboard will kingston ddr3 1600 4gb khx1600c9d3b1k2/4gx memory work with 32bit os I am putting a system togather have purchased the mother board and memory now i am questing if it...


This motherboard uses DDR3-SDRAM, ECC and non-ECC, unbuffered, PC3-10600(1333mhz) or PC3-8500(1066mhz), dual channel architecture (two sticks at a time), and a max memory of 8Gs.
This are the specs for your ram: 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC
(Kit of 2) Intel XMP HyperX = DDR3-1600
Default = DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-27
CL9-9-9 1.65V
1.5V

In other words, Yes! This should work just fine. The ram will just run at its default speed of 1333mhz.

Mobo Compatibility and tech/spec variations


All Asus P5GC-MX/1333 mobos are "X-series" boards.  

If you put higher speed ram on that mobo, it will just run the ram at lower speeds.

The board will not take 1333 speed DDR3, because it is only DDR2 compatible.

OVerclocking is complicated and risky, here is neither the place to teach or learn overclocking.

Some newer core 2 chips will automatically overclock, when all but 1 core is in hibernation (which will never happen if you are using vista). Other than that overclocking involves setting the bios to increase the memory buss speed, as well as slightly increasing the cpu and ram voltages as needed for stability. There is a great risk associated with manually overclocking and adjusting voltages, and should not be attempted by beginners on machines they value.
