    I have 2x 4GB Hyper X Fury DIMMs in my pc (https://www.amazon.com.mx/gp/product/B00J8E92R6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) I want to double that, so I have 16GB total.

    Hello, I have an IBM System x3950 M2 with 128 GB of memory. The system boots up fine but I have a few errors at the boot process. Just this means that the memory is corrupted, but somehow the system still manages to boot?

    Question Possible bad dimm stick/slot, need help!

    I’ll try to keep this as short and to the point as possible. The other day I updated the bios on my Strix B450-f gaming mobo (granted my pc is only 8 months old), and the next day while playing a game I got my first BSOD with the “memory managment” error. That happened a few more times, and...

    Question What is the latency of RAM (DIMM) and PCIe?

    What I want to know is approximately the amount of latency induced by PCIe and by RAM? I want the latency from the CPU to the DIMM slot and to the PCIe slot (so no round-trip latency).

    [SOLVED] Are there any PCIe/M.2 to RAM (DIMM) adapter out there?

    I don't know of any PCIe or M.2 to RAM (DIMM) adapters, so I would like to know if anybody here knows of such a thing. I am talking about PCIe/M.2 to DIMM adapters, not the DIMM to PCIe adapters that allow RAM to work over the PCIe bus (inherently at a slower rate/higher latency). Also, I am...

    [SOLVED] What is this riser?

    I found this riser online and I don't know exactly what it does. So can anyone help me? (https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32949852202.html ) So far, I believe these are 2 possible options (but I'm open to other options). It could be: 1) An actual DIMM to M.2 or SATA riser that can store/cache the...

    Question Ram slots not recognized

    Hey everyone, I just built my new computer and I've run into an issue with the motherboard only recognizing one of the four ram slots. I've tried multiple arrangements and have swapped the ram in the working slot to rule out the ram being the issue. When I've tried other arrangements I keep...

    [SOLVED] Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a highspeed interconnect between computers in a cluster?

    Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a high speed interconnect between computers in a cluster? You could get the lower latency than PCIe and a decent amount of bandwidth (according to kanewolf, latency is WAY more important than bandwidth). So would that work?

    Question CPU heating problems?

    So I recently finished building a new PC. I got an i9-9900k with a H100i Pro cooler. As far as I could tell, I applied enough thermal paste, put the block on right, put the fans in the right spots, etc. When I run my CPU under 100% load, it zooms up to around 90 degrees Celsius and hovers around...
