  • How to check your RAM.

    For future reference, I was curious on how to find out what the exact model of my RAM is. I know it's Corsair Dominator series. But i don't know what model or the timings on it to help making upgrading from 2 gigs to 4 easier.

    My Resume includes Pirate, Mercenary, and a Devil Dog, what else do you want.

    You have a pretty good chance of being able to pull the model number with CPU-Z... then just Google and cross-reference it.

    Short of just punching in numbers off the RAM itself under the heat spreader

      The package that your RAM came in should also have the exact model number for your RAM.

      There is also a sticky (aka warranty / identifier sticker) on each module of RAM that might tell you the model of the RAM, the model number, the memory timings, etc. (Generic RAM usually don't include this sticker.)
