Do I need to buy modules with same CAS as what I got?
Hello, I have a system with 4 GB of RAM (DDR 2 6400), & according to CPU-Z, it is running at a CAS latency of 6 (4, 5, 6 on the SPID tab). My question is I am thinking of purchasing 2 more 2 GB modules of the same type, but I wasn't sure if the CAS latency must match what I have in my system. Will I run into any problems?
Yeah I figured so, but thought I'd double-check first. Thanks!
Well it seems the memory modules I bought from Newegg.com are too big (in terms of height) for the slots. I know this as I checked the RAM that is already installed & noticed that they are 1/2 the size in height (approx 1/2 an inch compared to approx 1 inch for the two I bought) after unsuccessfully installing them into the slots. The ones I bought are from Crucial & the ones that were installed (by a "mom & pop" computer store) on the board when I bought it were from Kingston.
My question is how can I be sure that I'm getting modules of the correct height for my motherboard?
