Memory set identifier program

I found CPU-Z for my motherboard ID, and I'm sure that I could take the long way around by looking up its specs.

But, I remember something similar to identify memory sets, that you plug in for your RAM.

I think I know someone who'll have that handy in their tool kit, but it might be that someone else will volunteer it first.

I had it on an older computer, which is no longer serving me.

I find your post to be VERY unclear as to just what it is that you're asking about, BUT at the level of a guess, maybe this will help??????

Make sure your memory is compatible with your motherboard.

When purchasing a memory upgrade for your system, compatibility is the most important factor, i. e., in order for memory to work on your system, it must be compatible with your motherboard.

The type of memory you purchase must match your system's motherboard

Depending on the age and purchase price of your computer, it was designed to use one of the following types of memory technology:

SDR (single data rate) technology primarily appeared in systems manufactured before 2002
DDR (double data rate) technology began to appear in systems manufactured in 2002
DDR2 (second generation double data rate) technology began to appear mid-2004
DDR3 technology began to appear in late 2007
DDR4 technology began to appear in 2014

A program such as CPUID CPU-Z will give you that information under its Memory Tab (and of course there are tons of other free programs around that will do the same thing).

You want to know what RAM you have?


That'll tell you that and oodles of other stuff, too.

It's an old program, but extremely useful.

This is a direct link to the file, to save you messing around with theirs.
