Sorry but you are out of luck again, you have the max amount of RAM and the fastest speed that the Mobo will support.


From my computer here in post 13: http://www.geekstogo...ost__p__2165331

how can you tell how much RAM the mobo is capable of? I can not put 8gigs of ram on that mobo?

You can add a second 4GB stick of the same spec Ram, see MB details @ http://www.findlapto...cs-10272010h35/ best I could find http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231307 please do a visual check of the present stick of Ram to confirm compatibility.

This is how to research. You have to go to Dell, find the model, get the details of what Mobo is used, find the Mobo manufacturers website, read the specs for the motherboard. Which told me that it only supports 4GB of ram in 2 slots

399.0 MHz

Check post #16 I edited it with the crucial data... sorry but it slipped my mind that I needed it. Anyways I was told it was ok to post the 3 computers. As to why I posted 2 replies (16 and 17) is because they were for 2 different computers and 2 seperate questions. My computer... the first one listed in post 13 is done ignore it. And post 16 I even said was my brothers computer (computer #2).

Thank you Mykl for informing me on how to find out how much RAM a mobo supports.

My bobo, you did the right thing.

Thank you Mykl for informing me on how to find out how much RAM a mobo supports.

As Phillpower2 pointed out, if you have access to a working computer use the

Crucial System Tool

http://www.crucial.c...ner/?click=true


only use my rather roundabout method, if all you have is the Mobo information.

For the Foxconn 2AB7 1.00 motherboard it's 8GB memory max.

I've got 2 PC's here with it. HP S5610F and Compaq CQ5720F.

Bios shows ram speed limit of PC3-8500 so no need to get anything faster then that.

Even though Compaq and HP are the same company the CQ5720F home page has a more complete driver lineup then the S5610F for Win7.

It's weird but i get a rather high score of 7.6 on the Windows indexing test for the WD 640GB HDD that's in the box but can not get anything higher then 5.9 on a fresh install of 7.

A fresh install of Win7 shows only 1 missing driver and that's networking.

Reopening an old post. Same question kind of.

Crucial Scan: http://www.crucial.c...021E64231D926C3

I know you stated 8GB will be all that gamers really needed. I will stay with the 8GB but is there a faster speed RAM, if such a thing exists, that I can put in here that will improve performance/speed? Not that my speed is slow now, it's just more for curiosity's sake.

Your MB can run Ram at speeds up to 2800MHz in certain circumstances such as overclocking etc, check out the MBs QVL (qualified vendors list) for memory upgrade options http://www.asrock.co...4-M/?cat=Memory

I was looking at some RAM on Newegg. Would you get 2X8GB sticks or 4X4GB sticks?

I was looking at

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231673
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231589
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820104374

Which would you pick? Does it matter that none of them are on the QVL?

On QVL, that I like
