What is ecc ram?
Error correcting ram. Expensive but your ram will never go bad
ECC is error checking, there is an extra chip on the ram that does this and it's only really useful for server machines. Also ECC runs slower. Non-ECC has better performance and is used in most desktop PCs. There is a lot more to it, but this should give you the answer you need. For more info just type ECC vs. Non-ECC into any search.
The PC2-5300U is non-ECC Unbuffered RAM, which is the most common type of RAM that does not check for errors. The PC2-5300E RAM is ECC RAM or error correcting. The two will not work together. ECC RAM will only work in motherboards that support it. The E and U at the end of the names indicate the ECC and Unbuffered status Insert mode . The question was about 5300P, not 5300U memory. The 5300P memory…
the basic difference between desktop and workstation is that in desktop ecc ram( error checking and correcting ram) is not present while if i talk about in workstation ecc ram is present there as well as workstations are preferred due to higher applixcation like autocadd application,designing application, mechnical designing purpose and also as well as it is certified by isv( international software vendor). simply i can say that workstation are more powerful than desktop.
buffered ram is ram that buffers data before it fully excepts it. its like the same as ecc error correcting code. buffered is better than unbuffered as long as your mother board takes it. you have to check your ram you have now and see if it has it. but be careful of static, it can killl your memory chips and boards.
There are two types of memories when it comes to supporting ECC (error correction code/circuitry). These are ECC memory (memories which support ECC) and non-ECC (which do not support ECC). ECC helps detect and correct certain types of errors in memory transactions if they occur. ECC memories are a bit slow in performance as there is some time lost in detecting and correcting errors if they occur. Non-ECC memories are more common, faster and cheaper…
If you motherboard supports ecc sdram memory can you substitute sdram memory that does not support ecc?
Depending on the specs of the motherboard, a motherboard that supports ECC SDRAM may support a non-ECC SDRAM module. If a motherboard can support both types, you would have the option to enable or disable the ECC feature in BIOS. Other than the fact that an ECC module has an odd number of chips, there is no other physical difference on the module. They are keyed the same.
Your motherboard k8upgrade vm800 from Asrockwhich is not support ecc and buffred dimms it possible to put ecc and buffred dimm to work in non ecc and non bufferd mode?
RAM (Random Access Memory) SIMM - Single memory module DIMM - Dual memory module SDRAM - Single Data "RAM" DDR - Dual data rate DDR2 - Dual data rate x 2 DDR3 - Dual data rate x 3 ECC - Error Correction Mhz - Speed of data transmitted Timings - Communication between the various chips DDR2- 1024mb - 1024mb refers to the size of the RAM stick
This would depend on what you are looking to use the server for. If you are looking to use it for a VPS virtualizor, then it's a bit more complicated than just getting 24 GB ECC (DDR2, etc) RAM and sticking with it. You'd need more like 96 GB ECC (DDR2, etc) RAM and at least four hard drives with io disks. You would also need RAID and so much more. There is no definite…
What if your friend has discovered he has 128 mb of ram installed in two slots on his motherboard that has four slots and supports dual channeling the board runs at 667 mhz and uses ddr2 non-ecc dimm?
The size and number of memory modules that a machine can take is limited by the design of the motherboard chipset and the memory controller. Consult the documentation for the specific machine. The lagest memory modules that are supported in the latest models of retail desktop and laptop machines is 8GB. Some server and workstation machines can support ECC or ECC Registered RAM of up to 16 GB per module. Laptop machines typically have two…
The Acer Aspire 3620 Notebook computer can use DDR2 PC2-4200 (DDR2-533) or DDR2 PC2-5300 (DDR2-667) which are 200-pin SODIMM modules. The Acer Aspire 3620 has two memory slots and each slot supports up to 1 Gigabyte of RAM for a total of 2 Gigabytes. This system uses unbuffered, Non-ECC, 1.8 Volt RAM.
What if your friend has discoverd he has 128 mb of ram installed in two slots on his motherboard that has four slots and supports dual channeling the board runs at 667 mhz and uses ddr2 non-ecc dimm?
I would say that something n the information is incorrect. I don't believe that there have ever been 64 MB or 128 MB DDR2 desktop DIMMs marketed, and I never encountered a desktop machine with DDR 2 RAM sold with less than 512 MB RAM. So either one or both of the RAM modules are defective or we don't have complete information.
