This is pretty easy to explain. Let’s look at a screenshot of “Activity Monitor” taken from my Mac OS X 10.9.5 system just now: With that as a reference, let’s do some math based on the items on the lower right-hand side of that screenshot: App Memory: 1.59GB File Cache: 1.32GB Wired Memory: 1.30GB Add those numbers up and the total is: 4.21GB which ...

Part of the problem is that its only one chip, so you are running at single channel, meaning your highest possible frequency is about 1066Mhz. Additionally, at present, in order to get speeds greater than 1600, you need to enable an overclocked XMP profile in the BIOS for most motherboards. Since you are in Single-Channel mode, the frequency for 1600Mhz ...

The extended test hangs at 21% of the first pass every time. This seems to be a problem other people have come across over time, but there isn't a satisfactory answer on the whole internet that I can find. I think the standard answer is replace the RAM in Slot 1 or Bank 1 (using 1-based math, and assuming 21% puts it in the first slot or pair of banks). ...

DDR3 PC3-12800 corresponds to 1600 MT/s (megatransfers per second). There is no standardized 1333 MHz DDR3 type at least according to Wikipedia, so you are probably referring to 1333 MT/s, otherwise known as PC3-10600. Generally speaking, slower RAM of the otherwise correct type is compatible with a motherboard capable of supporting faster RAM, but you ...

The first set of RAM you linked to is buffered as well as ECC which means it definitely won't work. Buffered RAM is typically for servers so you need to make sure the RAM you buy is listed as unbuffered. The second set of RAM doesn't look particularly good quality to me, and it does clearly say it's for AMD systems so I wouldn't risk buying it. You might be ...

To be positive, you would need to contact Gigabyte. To be called DDR2 Ram, the ram chip needs to have an SPD chip containing JEDEC information which identifies the RAM Module to Bios. They also will contain extended information. On Intel it's called XMB and on AMD chipsets it's called EPP. If the PC Bios doesn't understand EPP or XMP it will fallback to ...
