Choosing RAM to Increase Memory in a Computer

RAM is one of the most important components of a laptop. The amount of memory a system requires depends on the intent of use and system capabilities. The more RAM a system has, the more programs it is equipped to operate simultaneously.

How to choose RAM for a laptop

The average amount of memory module stored on a laptop is 8 GB. Smaller systems may have as little as 4 GB. More powerful and larger devices may run as much as 16 or 32 GB. Most modern systems don't grant access to RAM, the option to add more or upgrade is made possible. Laptop and tablets are merging for convenience and performance capabilities. More complicated programs operate more efficiently on unbuffered memory modules. VIO regulators are usually used to adjust voltage. Frequency in MHz has little impact on speed. Here are a few available Hynix DDR3 unbuffered and other types to consider.

  • Hynix 8 GB
  • HMT351U6CFR8C-PB
  • Hynix 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz
  • HMT451S6BFR8A-PB
  • PC3 - 14900
  • PC3-8500
  • HMT351U6EFR8C-PB
  • PC2-5300

When should I upgrade ECC memory?

Slow or stagnant performance of the system could indicate a need for upgraded or replacement memory. Utilization of the computer task manager helps to determine if the available ECC or non-ECC memory is overtaxed. Many laptops have memory that is sealed into the motherboard. This prevents the addition or upgrade of DDR3 or other memory. Technical advancement makes it possible to expand without accessing those sealed components. If all memory slots are occupied, remove current DIMMs and replace with those that provide the desired number. The upgrade process could take between 15- 30 minutes maximum. Here are a few signs that an upgrade or expansion is needed.

  • Performance slows when new apps are opened
  • Available memory is below a quarter of the total available amount
  • The advanced insight that the available amount is less than required to handle gaming or excessive use

Here are a few available SDRAM upgrade options to consider if replacement is required.

  • DIMM
  • DDR3L
  • 204-pin SODIMM
  • CL11
  • PC3-10600
  • DDR3-1600MHz
  • PC3-12800

How can I tell which RAM is compatible with a device?

Compatibility is important when expanding or replacing memory modules. To perform efficiently, the motherboard must accept the type being applied. Various generations will run adequately with lower voltage and fewer latencies than past generations. There are memory advisory tools that assist in determining if the system is eligible for or could accept an expansion. Once the test approves the addition or replacement of memory, the device can be upgraded. Doubts regarding compatibility can usually be cleared by the manufacturer of the system. The system will likely require one of the following types.

  • SDR
  • DDR
  • DDR2
  • DDR3
  • DDR4
  • HMT351S6CFR8C-PB
