Notebook DDR III RAM

The store currently most commonly used in notebooks are DDR3 SDRAM (Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) modules in the SO-DIMM (Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module) format. With 204 pins and a further notch placed in the middle, the modules differ visually clear from their predecessors.

The concept of DDR2 memory has been extended and improved by working with an eight-prefetch instead of a quad-prefetch. Prefetch basically means that for each read request and data pin per eight bits of data are transferred. Besides, the power was decreased to 1.5 V from 1.8 V above, resulting in less heat generation and even higher clock rates than previously possible. Also, there are now so-called low-voltage versions (marked with DDR3U or DDR3L) require 1.3V or 1.25V voltage. In the notebook segment, but these are rather rare.

The standard clock speeds of the memory modules be 800, 1066, 1333, 1600 MHz. A higher clock is usually achieved by overclocking, each manufacturer differs slightly from the actual specification. In general, you should prefer the highest possible clock rates. However, if you want to update your device with one of our refurbished memory modules, you can also go to the clock rate of the existing memory modules. Also, various clock rates are not a problem, since the clock rate is automatically adjusted by the motherboard. In our online shop you will find a large number of used memory modules with different storage capacities up to 4GB per module. Such an additional module can speed up the performance of your system as a whole significantly, because many applications benefit enormously from more memory.

What is needed to retrofit memory?

With most notebooks is located on the underside of a plastic concealment under which the memory is to be found. Often, this is marked with a small memory module as a symbol and can be solved with a single screw. The modules are horizontal to the motherboard and are obliquely inserted in the slot. Then you press the module down until it clicks between two spring terminals. Software Technically, you need to change or configure anything on the device. However, old operating systems like Windows XP can not manage more than 3GB of memory. Therefore, is also worth changing to a 64-bit operating system. If you want to make your device fit for new applications is often enough to one of our refurbished memory modules that we have fully tested for functionality. In our assortment there memory modules are well-known manufacturers such as Hynix, Kingston, Infineon and Elpida.
