  • RAM Compatibility Question

    Hi All.

    Just a quick question, is the below RAM compatible with the Epia M10k board?
    I think it is, but just wanted to check before buying.
    Thanks

    55 for 1 gig....not bad, 512 would be enough though I reckon. Looks to be compatible to me, others will be more knowledgeable though...

        it is compactible and no 1 gig is no overkill is play safe.....I had 512mb and changed to 1 gig and the apps for my run better..(think in the time that you estressing the puter loading maps/mp3/voice rec/radar detector and so on............

        As long the mobo support it you can put the gig in good use...

          Computers, towing, and college girls all have one thing in common... too much RAM is never enough.

            Just remember when hibernating it has to write the contents of memory to disk.....and read it back from the disk on startup.

            Dunno how much time it would add, but it must add something ??????

              If you think about it.... if you are using the extra memory, it will save time. Whatever it caches to virtual memory will take longer to backup and restore than what is stored in RAM. It would be reading and writing from/to the HD, while doing the same from the RAM.
              This is hypothetical, and I am no expert, but I believe it would be better with more ram.

                The thing you are overlooking is that the RAM has to be written out to the HD, and then read back in. Windows doesn't do any optimization on the size of this file, and it writes out a 1GB file if you have 1GB of ram. This reading and writing take up most of the startup/shutdown time when hibernating (the little meter going across the screen).

                Cuttin the ram by 50% wont get you half the boot time, but it will be less.

                  I dnt hibernate my PC anyway, it loads up and shuts down for each time the car is switched on and off, Thought this would be the best way to keep the system running at its best, as the longer a system runs, the more bogged down it can become and it boots up in under 60 secs, so its no hardship.

                  1GB as i will be using for Sat Nav, MP3 playback, Phoco, sometimes films etc etc More there is there, the less HDD access is required and for the sake of a few quid more than a 512 im gonna chuck in all it can take to maximise performance.

                  Thanks for the help guys
