Need nyo double check MOBO specs online + CPU + OS para sa RAM capacity


Tools:
1. CPU-Z (download and install) 👇

Steps:
1. Check Max capacity ng RAM na kaya ng PC/Laptop nyo
👉open cmd type code below then press enter
wmic memphysical get maxcapacity

👇value in kilobytes divide nyo lang sa 1024, divide ulit sa 1024 yun na yung total GB ng Ram
-or gamit online conversion

👆sample sa taas = 16GB Max Ram capacity

2. Check Processor (CPU) specs
sample: i3 2330M

👇option 1: computer (right click),open properties or
cpu.jpg

👇use nyo CPU-Z (option 2)

3. Search type ng ram at speed na supportado ng MOBO/CPU (ddr2, ddr3, ddr4 /1066/1333/1600/1866 etc)
sample: DDR3-1333
(ito lang kaya ng cpu ko)

Mobo Max via Crucial (8GB lang max)

note: Yung MOBO ko max capacity 8GB at reco gamitan ng 1600MHZ kaso yung nasalpak na 8GB 1600MHZ downgraded sa 1333MHZ kasi yun lang limit ng CPU ko

4. Paano malaman yung RAM na nakasalpak (speed/manufacturer/volts)
👇gamit CPU-Z sa SPD tab

notes:
DDR3=1.5v

DDR3L=1.35v
PC3=1.5v

PC3L=1.35v

Kung nakalagay ay
PC3-10700
ay equivalent 1333MT/s (Mega transfer per sec) or 1333MHZ
👉divide nyo lang 10700 sa 8 (approximate)
👉divide 1333MHZ sa 2 kasi dual = 667MHZ
PC3-6400=800MHZ (or MT/s) 400MHZ
PC3-8500
=1066MHZ (or MT/s) 533MHZ
PC3-12800
=1600MHZ (or MT/s) 800MHZ
PC3-14900
=1866MHZ (or MT/s) 933MHZ

5. Paano malaman yung RAM na nakasalpak via CMD (speed/manufacturer/locator)
👉gamit CMD type code below
wmic memorychip get manufacturer, speed, devicelocator
cmd_ram_info.jpg


👉Summary: i3 2330M = 16gb MAX= DDR3 only = 1333MHZ speed= 1.5v or 1.35v

6. MAX Capacity via OS (operating system)

7. Pwede na mag SHOPEE/LAZADA! 🤣


Final Words:
1. Bawal combine DDR2 sa DDR3, or DDR3 sa DDR4 vice versa
2. Pwede combine different brands/GB basta same Speed at volts (2G + 4G, @1600MHZ/1.5v)
3. Recommended same brand, same speed, same volts para less issues
4. Wag lumampas sa Speed required dahil sayang lang pag di magamit
-required 1333MHZ sinalpakan mo 1600MHZ, 1333MHZ lang magagamit sa 1600MHZ
5. Mixed brand, different (speed/volts) gagana padin pero not recommended
6. CHECK nyo mobo/cpu online kung ano max capacity na kaya dahil kahit kaya sa mobo kung hindi kaya sa CPU vice versa

sample: ☝️
slot 1: 8G Kingston 1600MHZ 1.35v
(downgraded to 1333MHZ)
slot 2: 2G Transcend 1333MHZ 1.5v
10gb.jpg

Mixed brand/different speed/different volts for Demo only (wag gagayahin)😂
-bootable at usable naman pero di naten masabi issues later kaya iparehas nyo nalang para less hassle

happy upgrade :coffee:



UPDATE sa aking pag UPGRADE :p

a. my cpu max=16Gb ddr3 1333MHZ
b. my mobo max=8Gb ddr3 1600MHZ (speed capped to 1333MHZ due to cpu limits)
c. via cmd max=16GB
d. voltage supported 1.5v and 1.35v (as per old RAM used)

final: bought 2 x 8GB DDR3 1333MHZ 1.35v
👉bakit hindi 1600MHZ kinuha ko kasi useless at sayang pera kung limitado sa 1333MHZ
👉bakit 16GB at diko sinundan yung max ng MOBO? Personal risk kuna since luma na to at personal test kung kaya nya ihandle as per max sa cmd command

Result:
1. bootable/usable lahat

2. cpu-z

3. Computer properties

Kung bago pa mga unit nyo stick muna kayo sa manufacturer specs sa limit ng Mobo/CPU since yun palang fully tested nung narelease.

max RAM Capacity 8GB

needed:
DDR3 1333MHZ PC3-10600

voltage: use mo nalang CPU-z for details kung 1.35v or 1.5v yung current Ram nakasalpak
Salamat po 😍, bat ganto naman po saakin master blank po yung part ng SPD sa may CPU-Z po naka run as administrator namn po?

wlang slot 3 don sa cpu z ko

nag search ako sa google hanggang 64GB max ram itong processor legit po ba yan kasi sabi mo 32GB lang pwede
nakdepende din sa Mobo aside from CPU kaya kung ano yung lalabas sa cmd yun na kaya based sa Mobo at cpu

check mo lang ibang slots sa drop down sa cpu-z, unless kung heavy user ka sa editing ng videos at rendering para iavail yung 32gb since malakas nadin from 16gb pag normal usage

Patulong dito, sabi ng Lenovo support hanggang 12GB max dahil 4GB onboard tapos yung isang slot hanggang 8GB lang kaya. Pero sa forum ng Lenovo may nakapaginstall ng 16GB for a total of 20GB RAM, same model ng sa akin.
