    RAM for M10000 Nehemiah

    I just ordered my M10000 yesterday and im in the market for some RAM. What type of ram is ideal for the M10000 Nehemiah? What kind do you use? Ive seen sooo many different types and companies on the internet. I dont know where to start. What is the difference between registered, unbuffered, and DDr2? Im a total RAM newb. Please help!

    Didn't your Mobo come with a spec sheet of sorts? I'm sure people have been using 256 DDR's

    Registered Ram is ECC. It has an error-checking whosit onboard so that it checks the validity of the stored info when it gets accessed. This is mainly for servers, and you cant use ECC memory in non ECC boards :P but dont worry, ECC memory is quite clearly marked as being such, and it's fricking expensive. (though not quite as expensive as the RAM in my desktop )

    i dont know what buffering is, and since i dont, you dont need to know either. i've built many systems and never had a problem with any of them.

    the M10000 uses pc2100 DDR memory. i'd advise you to either get a 256 or 512 mb stick of one of the big brands. Kingston, Corsair, or Mushkin. I'd reccommend crucial, but people have had problems with crucial memory in itx boards. crucial makes awesome memory, but sometimes it doesnt play well with via boards. so kingston, corsair, or mushkin.

    dont worry about latencies, get the cheapest memory you can from any of those 3, so long as it meets or exceeds pc2100 specs.

    In regards to memory speeds, the memory doesnt have a clock on it to tell it it's going too slow, as mem speed is set by the FSB (which also controls the processor speed). So, you buy whatever memory you need so long as it meets or exceeds the fsb rating you intend to run it at. in this case, pc2100. so you can get pc2100, pc2700, or pc3200 DDR. whichever is cheapest. dont be suprised, when pc3200 is cheaper than 2100... that happened to me a few weeks ago when i was in the market for memory lol.


    alright, got it?

    EDIT:

    oh.. and just in case you wanna make yourself future-resistant, buy pc3200 RAM.

    Keep in mind that some memory can cause issues when used at slower speeds (happens alot with the boards HP uses, this is from personal experience), so buying PC3200 might not be a good idea (not to mention it's more expensive). I have a Crucial PC2100 256 DDR stick in my M10000 based system and have no issues at all, but I really do want to upgrade to 512, so the memory you got is what I would recommend too.
