The RAM you've selected is incompatible with the rest of your parts. It is ECC (stores extra data in order to detect memory errors) registered (uses a special circuit to reduce the amount of power needed to drive signals) memory, while the CPU and mainboard you've selected only support regular (non-ECC, non-registered) memory.

The problem with those kinds of USB devices is that it's very difficult to know what chip they are actually using. Some devices in the same series might even use different components if the manufacturer was able to source a slightly different component at a cheaper price. They would then ship a Windows driver that supports the different variations of ...

Sockets are the answer. Generally, modern intel CPUs use sockets in the LGA 11xx format. I don't know what your CPU uses for it's socket, but before you ask: no, you cannot get socket adapters for cpus. If the sockets aren't compatible, you need a new motherboard, and maybe more. The socket type should be silkscreened onto the motherboard somewhere. ...

I will first focus on compatability. On the Newegg Page for the MOBO: 1 x ATX 24-pin power connector 1 x ATX 4-pin 12V CPU power connector These are standard ATX PSU Connectors that can be found on every ATX-Compatible Power Supply. However, the power supply that you chose is considered not that good in the PC Building Community. At that same price-point ($...

Your motherboard was sold with several different chipsets on it; the best possible answer will depend on what chipset you have available. Without knowing more than you have already said, the best certain upgrade would be the Pentium 4 RK80532PC064512. That's already probably the CPU you have, BUT you can do a bsel mod on it if your chipset supports an FSB ...

You already had the exact way to find which DIMMs to use, you just didn't know it. Go to whichever site you prefer to use to buy PC components, and search for DDR3 PC3-12800 1600Mhz, make sure to specify SODIMM (laptops) or DIMM (Desktops) If you would like a recommendation: I would suggest G.SKILL F3-12800CL11S-4GBSQ Reasons being: This is a standard SO-...

The telling part is in the last part of that little chart. Note that it displays an 8+4+4+4 dual-channel configuration, but in reality, you're only getting 16GB of the 20GB you install in that configuration. That's normally a big sign that the 16GB RAM limitation is something tied to the motherboard chipset, and you're not going to get around it. In this ...

The question What exactly is the cause of RAM incompatibility? on superuser provides a good overview of possible causes for incompatibility. The answers to the question provide some interesting reasoning. https://superuser.com/a/1252224/774206 You might have two RAM sticks with the same part number and one can tolerate a 5% undervoltage and the other can't, ...

OK, three part answers: I am unaware of SPF(+) to copper interfaces. That does not mean that they do not exits. If they do exist then compatability is not a guarantee, so a call to HP is probably a good idea. If only to get an article number to search further on, since I expect the HP price to be 'not low'. Based on the goal that you just need two ...

The closest you will get to 'flawless' is a matched set of 4 sticks that are specifically recorded as compatible by the mobo manufacturer. This is not an option for you, if you want to re-use your existing RAM. You could instead buy a matched pair of sticks of the same model as you currently have. While not a fully matched set, you should not have any ...

Your motherboard does support ECC memory, but probably not registered. If you absolutly want ECC memory, try to find ECC Unbuffered memory, like Crucial CT16G4WFD824A for example. FIY, another related question that was asked yesterday, Will a non-ECC memory work with motherboard and CPU that supports ECC?


1

Most likely yes.... if the specs for the RAM are the same - size, speed & timings if the motherboard supports both sticks If you have problems, you may be able to mitigate it by tweaking BIOS settings, but many motherboards will compensate for minor discrepancies (ie. lowering timings). You should be fine to trial it - you are not going to break ...

That mobo will support up to 2933Mhz out o' the box, which is about right for 3000Mhz RAM (it's just more honest about what 3kMhz looks like in the math). AMD compatible is really just a marketing thing, in that AMD specifically tested models using that memory to get the speeds they're reporting, and have confirmed it works with Ryzen's RAM-scaling ...

Please see my accepted answer here for an overview of XMP and OC in relation to memory. This Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 memory is probably a good choice for you. It comes in varying colors, which are all roughly around 150 EUR, or the Red version, which is 130 EUR. This is the RAM that I actually have in my personal machine, and I have never had any issues ...

That's a tall order for a CPU from 2011. The Supermicro Motherboard MBD-C7Q67-O looks like it should fit the bill, however. The only caveat is the front USB 3.0 headers (I took it as "you would like to have" rather than "required"), but those can be easily added with an add on card. The full specifications can be found here. As for the price, Newegg and ...

If I were to use 2 way crossfire (two of the same GPU) does that mean I can now use 6 screens (three on each card)? No. The only way to use the additional 3 video outputs on the other card would be to run it without crossfiring it. You can run multiple GPUs in a computer without needing to crossfire them. If I can only use 3 screens, would I plug the ...

My friend did a very similar thing, but with PCIe 2 put into PCIe 1 slot. The only thing you will see is that the card won't perform as it should - PCIe 2 is almost 40% slower than PCIe 3. As @Mark stated in the comments this difference is between PCI express verions itself, not for the performance of a specific GPU and also depends on the workload. That ...
