How to check serial number of ram?

I have 4x512 of Kingston Hyper X memory and want to check the detailed information on the modules like serial number and built date.

I know I can check by actually looking at the stcikers on the heatsinks but what if I want to check it in my windows with some kind of program?

I need to verrfy that the 2x512 kit I just added is legit.


thanks

    its not stored in the ram itself. you need to look at the sticker.
  2. CPU-Z will give you the serial numbers and build date for Kingston HyperX under the SPD tab.

    Edit: What do you mean by "legit"?
  3. Legit as I think it is possible that other ram may be covered under the heatsinks.

    The 2 sets are built 10 months apart and seems like overclocking has to be reduced to make them run.

    It also boots in 333mhz if I set it to auto on the memory divider so I need to manualy change it to 400 (if I were to run them with no overclocking)

    I bought them used...

    Thamks for the help. I got the serial number from them now.

    Manufacturers often change the components/design/programmed settings over such a long time period, even while keeping the same part number.

    I don't quite understand what you mean by this.

    This is often normal. What model number(s) HyperX do you have?
