Here are some pages from my motherboard book? Having any trouble reading the text pages? They look ok after I resized them with IRfanview on my desktop, after I uploaded them to photobucket they look bad.









Anyway, what is CAS latency? Here's a DIMM of RAM from my machine, I think it was made my micron, it has no manufacturer info.



The page with the types from each manufacturer is a little confusing. I want to get eight 8 GB DIMMS. The clock frequency will be adjusted it says. So I can get with a higher frequency but it will only work with at a lower one, so you don't have to worry about one that runs too fast.

I want to put heat spreaders on all of them as, even though the one I will get will have a lifetime warranty. Do those need to be glued on to the DIMM's?

I was thinking 2 of these would work.

Actually there are two more pages of compatible RAM. But, I want to know first if you can read the ones I posted.

Remember, Bing Google is your friend.

What is CAS latency?

One of the easiest ways to look for compatible RAM is to visit RAM sites and use their memory wizards. These either run a small (and safe!) program on your computer or you manually enter the details of your motherboard or computer. The wizard then provides a list of compatible RAM. Here are some common brand sites.

Corsair Memory Finder (manual data entry only)
G.SKILL RAM Configurator
Kingston Memory Search (manual data entry only)
Patriot Memory Finder (manual data entry only)

You don't have to buy from these sites but typically if you do, they guarantee recommended memory is compatible and will work.

If you don't want to buy any of these brands, just make sure you buy RAM with the same specs as suggested RAM.

BTW, I see you already have 32GB installed. Understand that is already a massive amount. It is highly unlikely you will see any performance gains by adding more RAM, except, maybe, on paper. You already have a nice CPU and graphics card. If me and I was looking for more performance and I already had 32GB of RAM installed, I would look into migrating to SSDs instead.

What exactly are you trying to improve on? Seeing your specs makes the post hard to understand.

Preparing Formatted Windows 7 PC
A long time ago I tried to install Windows XP on my old (2012) PC for retro gaming purposes. I gave up on this endeavor, as it is virtually impossible to find working drivers for XP that will make these modern parts work. So now, I formatted it again and re-installed 7. Except... the computer is...

[SOLVED] After pressing some key combo, I boot into emergency mode
I use Fedora 20. After pressing ctrl-alt-some function key, I entered emergency mode. Now every time I boot my computer, I enter emergency mode before I enter the normal OS. When I enter the normal OS there are no problems. How do I disable the auto-boot into emergency mode?
