Warning abouyt actual maximum RAM memory supported

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!

      Hi there.
      Nice meeting you all.
      I would like to ask a question about the XMP (SPD tab) of my ram
      I bought Crucial B 3200MHz RAM
      As far as I know my MB supports up to 3600MHz

      When I open task manager (windows) it shows the speed at 2667
      The "overclocking" menu of my laptop also shows 2660
      I would like to know which one is correct? 
      Does the RAM runs at 2667 or 3200MHz?
      See both CPUz and AIDA screenshots
      Kind regards

      CPUZ show me this

       
      And AIDI64 shows me this

      Hi everyone,

      Here are the specs,

      Aorus Master x570
      Ryzen 9 5900x @ 4GHZ
      4 sticks of 8gb Trident Z Neo @ XMP 3733MHz
      Aorus Master RX 6800XT (not overclocked but sometimes I enable the rage mod in WARZONE)

      Corsair HX850i

      At idle temps are amazing GPU 29-36, CPU 35-40
      While gaming 45 - 65(rarely) GPU 55 - 70 (70+ rarely depending on the game)

      BUT, PCH diode almost never goes below 70, and when gaming goes around 80-82

      I am trying to figure out why my pc does random restarts, so thinking this could be one of the problems. Initially I thought it's a PSU problem and needed an upgrade so temporarily disconnected few RGB accessories, dropped CPU 4.2 to 4GHZ and 3800MHz to 3733MHz not to stress my PSU until I get a 1000W. Haven't had any restarts for almost 2 months, today had 3 restarts in one day. PSU is 5 almost 5 years old. All other parts in PC are less than a Year old. Any suggestions or ideas are welcome and thank you in advance for the time:)

      Hello.
      I was testing my system memory and got a warning 20 seconds after the test started, I also recently got a blue screen twice with an error of memory management. And all of above started when i bought the second ram module Kingston ValueRAM [KVR16N11/8] , btw the first one is exactly same. Idk what to do, I`ve already tried to reinstall them and it gives same result.
      My motherboard is GA-H81M-S1 rev 2.0

      Hello, AIDA64 Engineer is not seeing my RAM sticks and their temperatures.  Mobo is new ASUS Crosshair VIII Dark Hero.  RAM is 4x8GB of Crucial Ballistix DDR4 with RGB.  CPU is Ryzen 9 5950X.  GPU is MSI RTX3090 SUPRIM X.  The RAM and their temperatures are showing up in HWInfo and other stat software app's.  Any suggestions?
      Kind regards,

      Hi, I am sorry if this topic is already here.
      About memory card..either internal or external, details in Aida64.
      Can we see details for memory e.g maker (manufacturer), speed, serial number etc? As for now i think we can only see capacity.
      Sorry again if i missed look about that function in the apps, but already check, none available.
       
      Thank you dev for the great apps.
