Warning abouyt actual maximum RAM memory supported

Recommended Posts

Dear AIDA64 developers:

When this week I asked about the maximum RAM memory that I could add to my computers, I thought a warning that AIDA64 may provide on the Chipset Page.

Some pages has one or more warnings after their info, for example about the potential inacuracy of DMI data. In the case of memory, I think that a warning of this kind on the Chipset page like "The actual maximum RAM memory you can add may be limited by your motherboard's DIMM slots. See your motherboard's user manual for more info." would be useful, of course localizable to every language.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Such warnings are meant to be short and easy to understand :) The problem with this particular issue is that it takes several sentences to properly explain what's going on, and what factors may determine the actual amount of system memory the motherboard supports.

Another alternative is including a single and relatively short sentence like "The actual ammount of maximum RAM memory may be limited by your motherboard" and explain in detail on the FAQ found in the AIDA64 Help. The DMI warning, for example, is a case of this: The warning just tells "Accuracy of DMI data cannot be guaranteed" but the help explains the cause.

Thanks!

      Everything is said in the title.
      Today, I have already purchased an Intel Core i7 8700K CPU on Amazon's website but I miss (it lacks) the Linux operating system and the motherboard manufacturer reference. All the motherboard manufacturer references that I have already seen over the Web are unfortunately design for Windows (Asus, Gigabyte, ASrock, MSI) and I am used to working on Linux rather than on Windows because I know better Linux than Windows.
      And I would like to install VMware Workstation Pro for Linux, that I have already purchased, to have afterwards a Windows virtual machine (I have already purchased a Windows 10 License at Microsoft).
      I look forward to reading you

      I just bought a new RAM and installed it on my laptop and opened AIDA64 and I found out that my new installed ram(KINGSTON) is not showing under SPD in motherboard drop-down menu but it is showing my older RAM(HYNIX)  which was previously installed.

      Hey guys, there is something strange happened.
      ryzen1700, asus b350 plus, bios version 0805(latest), windows 10 version 1703(latest)
      Bios default settings, everything is fine.
      Bios optimized settings, which is only overclocking CPU to 3.65ghz( memory clock is default 2133) . And I can't complete the Cache and Memory Benchmark, my computer black out during the copy phase every time. The system stability test works fine, the CPU temperature maintained about 61°.
      How can I fix it?
