Hi, The user manual technical specification for my Dell OptiPlex 3050 Tower says the following for Memory:-
Type
2133 MHz / 2400 MHz
NOTE: 2133 MHz is applicable only for 6th Generation processors.

If I look in System Information, I can see the following:-
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7500 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3408 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

How do I find out what generation my processor is?

Research: 2nd Gen = Sandy Bridge
3rd Gen = Ivy Bridge
4th Gen = Haswell
You probably don't have Skylate

EDIT: Download Speccy: https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download
It tells you in the Summary.

Thanks Corday.

That reply rang a bell with me and I ran Speccy, which gave me the following

Kaby Lake 14nm Technology

I'm afraid it's all Greek to me.

Mia Culpa. I think brainpower skipped a generation in my genetic makeup, but got good looks instead.

i5-7500 So for more info check Ark.Intel.com for all processors. Always the first number is the generation number. So for the 7500 the seven is your generation. Same as all the other I3,I5 and I7s.
