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!

      Hello everybody!
      First time posting to the forum, indeed it is my first time viewing the forum.  Ive been using the Engineer version of Aida64 (registered) for about 3 months now, and overall Im impressed with the software.  Its nice to just throw together a few different benchmarks and have them run how and when I want in the order I want.  I was doing all this with macros before
      Ive recently gotten back into building PCs, took a long hiatus back in the late 90s my last system having been assembled was a 440BX based chipset on an Abit motherboard, both of which no longer exist at least in a meaningful way lol.  I was an OC neophyte back then, as I am now, although I do enjoy the hobby/sport(?)
      I decided to wade into the dark and murky waters of RAM OCing, and went down that rabbit hole for a few weeks.  Long story short, I bought 2 x 16GB sticks of G.Skill 3600mhz XMP mem.  Stock timings sucked at 19-20-20-40-500 but I didnt know or care much about timings at the point I bought and assembled the system and so didnt realize their huge impact (relatively speaking) on ram performance.
      I was able to get them to post at 4000mhz 17-22-22-36-485 and ran that for a few months, then last night got the idea to try and tweak them some more, thinking maybe all these on off cycles might have trained them to do better (i dont know if that logic is incorrect or not in regards to training, but its how I justified another sweaty night of swearing out loud and smashing keys to my wife)
      Im now resting at 4000mhz 16-22-22-40-500 but I can feel they have more to give in the timings department.  Frankly, im already amazed at how well these Hynix CJR chips are doing on the OC.  My question is basically, Aida shows me as being first place in Latency, and near top tier in every memory bench, with only quad channel or server boards (mostly) beating me.  Are these results typical for these chips and my rig?  What can I do to push it further if anybody has any recommendations?  And am I correct in feeling a sense of accomplishment at being in the top spot for latency, or is my joy tragically misplaced?
      Thanks a lot guys, and to the Devs, great product and I will continue to use and support you!

      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.

      Hi there I’ve got a peculiar issue that I am unsure if it is system or program related. Am using latest stable release. When running all other tests are fine. Would appreciate any help
      But the moment I start the systems memory test it’ll rise to 100% and hang after 2-3s. No oc on ram. Running on xmp setting. Ram is g.skill trident z rgb 64gb (8x8) 3200
      system:
      6900k OC at 4.5/4.4
      cache OC at 35
