Memory Module-
How is RamBo® Server memory validated?
Our server modules are tested intensively for compatibility and reliability, first in RamBo®'s test labs by RamBo® engineers. Our rigorous validation process is designed to detect any marginal quality issues before we release the product to customers.
What is an SPD?
SPD stands for Serial Presence Detect, which is the firmware for a memory module. Basic information on the module like manufacturer, clock speed, latency values, capacity, and architecture are programmed by the module manufacturer in a small EEPROM chip on the module. When your system boots up, this data is fed into the brains of your system so it knows what memory you have installed.
Can I use PC3200 memory in my PC2700 motherboard?
Most motherboards have no problems supporting faster memory. PC3200 memory will work in almost all PC2700 motherboards. But we do not recommend mixing PC3200 and PC2700 modules in your system.
Do I have to load my memory in matched pairs?
No. Most high-end motherboards support dual channel memory. We recommend you populate memory in matched pairs for optimum performance and compatibility, but your motherboard should still work with mismatched memory.
What is latency and how does it affect performance?
Latency is the time delay from when data is requested by the CPU until it is available to read from memory on the data lines. Latency slows down system performance, so lower latencies mean better performance. Standard latency values are programmed into the module's SPD according to industry standard JEDEC specifications. The SPD values can be over ridden in the BIOS setup. RamBo® Overclocking modules are tested and guaranteed to operate at aggressive latency settings for best performance.
Which DIMM slot(s) should I load my memory modules into?
Here are some general guidelines, - Use the DIMM socket(s) with the lowest number printed on the motherboard (eg. DIMM0 first) - If there are no numbers visible, use the DIMM socket(s) closest to the CPU first - Use the DIMM socket adjacent to an occupied DIMM socket - Or, consult your motherboard manual to determine which DIMM socket(s) to use.
What is ECC?
ECC, or Error Checking and Correction, is a memory feature that uses a parity bit to check for memory errors. Single bit errors can be automatically corrected without causing any system lockups. This feature improves memory reliability, and is primarily used in servers.
What is Registered memory, and do I need it?
Most servers and engineering workstations use large memory arrays, and therefore require Registered memory for better reliability. The vast majority of desktop PCs use unbuffered memory, and do not support Registered memory. If you are unsure what type of memory your system uses, consult the motherboard user's manual.
What's the difference between RDRAM and RDIMMs?
RDRAM is Rambus Direct Random Access Memory. RDRAM is now an obsolete memory standard that is very rare. RDIMMs are Registered DIMMs, which are standard Registered memory for servers.
I installed memory in my system and now it doesn't boot up. What do I do now?
First, double check the specifications of your motherboard or system and make sure that the memory you installed is the correct type, speed and density. If so, remove the memory modules and reseat them - plug them in again and make sure they snap in place. If the system still will not boot, remove all but one memory module and try booting the system again. If problems persist, contact our technical support.
Why doesn't my Overclocking module boot up at its specified speed?
RamBo® Overclocking modules are tested and guaranteed to operate at their rated specifications. But they are programmed (in the SPD) to boot up at slow "safe" values so they will have no problems booting up in virtually any motherboard. At bootup you can enter the BIOS Setup and adjust the clock speed and latency values to more aggressive settings. The actual limits of how far your memory can go depend upon your motherboard, CPU, and other components in your system.
What do CAS2 and CAS3 mean, and which is better?
CAS stands for Column Address Strobe, which is an important latency setting for your memory. It is sometimes called CL, for CAS Latency. Latency is the delay time from when data is requested from memory until it is ready. Shorter latency means better performance, so CAS2 is faster than CAS3. RamBo® Overclocking modules are tuned to offer reduced latencies and the best possible performance.
What is Dual Channel memory?
Most high-end motherboards support two 64-bit memory channels for double the memory bandwidth. For this reason, RamBo® offers matched pairs of memory modules that are tested and packaged as a pair in a dual channel motherboard. These dual channel memory kits ensure the best performance, reliability and compatibility when used in dual channel motherboards.
What brand of DRAM chips does RamBo® use?
Super Talent has long-standing direct relations with leading chip makers like Samsung, Micron, Infineon, Hynix, and many others. Our relations with top chip producers ensure that our modules will have the best performance, quality, price and availability. We use different chips on each module based on a number of factors. You can always rest assured that whatever chip brand we use, every RamBo® memory module is 100% tested at its rated specification, and is backed with a lifetime warranty.
Can I use mixed brands and densities of memory modules in my system?
For best performance and compatibility, we recommend you use our dual channel memory kits. But most system boards will support mixed module brands and densities.
How can I boost the performance of my laptop?
Most laptops do not have enough memory, and will therefore have poor performance when trying to run multiple applications at once. The easy solution is to upgrade your laptop memory with RamBo® Laptop memory modules. Our SO-DIMMs are designed for compatibility across a wide range of Laptop computers. Make sure to consult your user manual to select the right type and speed of SO-DIMM.
What Voltage is RamBo® memory tested at?
All RamBo® Desktop, Laptop, and Server memory is tested at JEDEC standard voltage - 1.5V for DDR3, 1.8V for DDR2 , 2.5V for DDR and 3.3v for SDR. RamBo® Overclocking memory is often tested at higher voltages in order to reach higher levels of performance. Test voltage for our Overclocking products is stated in our detailed spec sheets for each product. We do not recommend using voltages above our specified test voltage.
Solid State Drive-
Does RamBo® SSD have TRIM function?
Yes. We provide full TRIM support for RamBo® SSDs.
Can I have TRIM function along with Snow Leopard OS?
No. Only Windows 7 support TRIM on our SSDs. Other OS won’t support this function.
What is MTBF?
MTBF is short for Mean time between failures, which predicted elapsed time between inherent failures of a system during operation. MTBF can be calculated as the arithmetic mean (average) time between failures of a system. Usually, bigger MTBF number means better product reliability.
Why do I need high IOPS?
High IOPS SSD will perform intensive computing much faster than low IOPS drive, such as database transaction processing, business intelligence, video editing, CAD/EAD simulation and virtualization.
