How to Choose the Best RAM This time share how to choose the appropriate Memory or the most fitting for the purposes of assembling a gaming computer. Not just the capacity you need to see, but many things. Like the speed of memory frequency in reading data. Compatibility with Mainboard and other components. Good brand, and others. Do not let the wrong choice because it will result in your money wasted.

I once bought 2 pieces of RAM has a different capacity and brand that one 1 Gb and the other 2 Gb, but has the same series and speed frequency. Increased performance 2 Gb 6.8, plus 1 Gb of RAM only up 7.2, so the effect of performance is only 0.4 only. Read too: How to choosing right VGA.

Simply see the explanation below before buying memory or assembling a gaming computer.

How to Choose the Best RAM

Best RAM

If you want to buy RAM or add more RAM, all you have to see is the series. For example, if you buy two pieces of RAM to make sure the same. For example, RAM PC12800 You also have to buy the other RAM with PC12800 series as well. For the series, it should be same if not the same can be dangerous. Read here to Get the serial number for RAM.

Not all Mainboard support with the speed of frequency in Memory (RAM). You should preview the min and max capabilities of the motherboard receiving the speed of the memory frequency. In addition to the motherboard, your processor must also be appropriate and able to receive the speed of your memory frequency (see first your processor and motherboard specifications before buying memory). So be careful. For maximum DDR3 speed 1066 - 1600 Mhz standard mode and 1866 - 3000 Mhz overclocking mode.

Being for capacity it is also cultivated the same, because if the series and RAM capacity are the same, then its performance will be very stable. For example, why does a brand sell 2/4 packs of RAM with the same capacity, that's the reason.

Try to use memory from a qualified manufacturer, so the product you use also has good quality. You should also use RAM that has the same brand, so that Memory runs more stable. I have experienced it (see above).

And most importantly and can't be inviolable, RAM must have the same socket. DDR2 RAM should be paired with DDR2 as well, and if the DDR3 RAM then the partner must be DDR3.

See also processor capabilities. Usually, there is information about the maximum capacity of the processor receives the capacity and speed of RAM. Check out the possibility of bottleneck here BOTTLENECK

Your motherboard should also be seen, then just buy it. DDR2 motherboards are now available for DDR3 RAM. Hehehehe ...... In addition to the socket, you also have to see, whether the motherboard can be installed series of RAM that you will buy. On the motherboard, specifications have the ability to accept the motherboard. For example, Max Dual Channel 8 GB speed 1333 Mhz. If you install 16 Gb of RAM at speed of 1866 Mhz, then the motherboard can't.

If you want to upgrade or increase RAM, see also the size of the electrical voltage used, there are some motherboards and Laptops can't read two pieces of RAM that have a different Voltage. Moreover, the laptop, ram different voltage can cause can't boot.


  • Must have the same series and specifications.
  • The speed of Frequency must be the same
  • Try to have the same capacity.
  • Try to have the same brand.
  • Must have the same interfaces
  • Not applicable if your RAM is only one.
  • Motherboard and Processor should support.
