System Buses & Bandwidth
Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.

8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Blue DDR3 PC3-12800(1600), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.5V is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Works perfectly in my PC. Good solid construction and keeps cool
Date published: 2019-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cousin Ram I added this 8 gig to the 8 gig i already have in my pc . MY PC is overclocked to 5.1 Ghz the only difference is this is blue and I had black previously the ram is fine now problems
Date published: 2017-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good RAM Very happy with this matched RAM, runs well on dual channel. The heat sink looks good, gives you a bit more confidence that you are not going to break it when squeezing it into the RAM Slot and probably cools it a bit better. The main reason I went for this RAM is the case has a window... It makes the RAM look substantial, rather than a diddy PCB. I could have gone for a faster speed but chose DDR3 1600 because it seemed to balance performance and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality memory I bought this item to double the memory in my desktop PC. I wanted to exactly match the existing memory for best results and Scan had exactly what I wanted in stock and at a very reasonable price.
Date published: 2016-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Additional Memory. I already had the same product in my computer and so purchased more to make 16GB. It works really well no issues.
Date published: 2016-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well priced purchase It's high performance as it says, it has performed well and hasn't bricked out on me yet! As a DDR3 option, you're probably building to a budget, and if you this far into thinking of buying this RAM pack, don't look back!
Date published: 2015-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy upgrade Tok seconds to add this memory to my computer. Easy.

Questions & Answers

Compatability and physical clearing?

I'm building a mini-ITX with the following components and pcpartpicker is telling me they're compatible. But it's not clear on whether or not there would be a problem with physical dimensions. The Vengeance seems a pretty sizeable component so I was just wondering if it would even fit in my case with all the other components? If not, can you recommend me an alternative?

Asked by: Vitz
I google imaged your product description and believe there is enough clearance for this memory product but I'm not sure 8GB is enough for what you are building. I built my own too and recently went to 16GB. The machine is now faster and smoother. 8GB seems low these days. Anyway it will fit. Also I advise installing at least a 600w power supply, you shouldn't under estimate the power soucre.
