Memory - RAM

RAM (Random Access Memory) is where data the CPU is working with is temporarily stored. More RAM is generally better, although there are diminishing returns and 32-bit versions of Windows only support a maximum of 4GB. Speed, measured in MHz, is another consideration, but most importantly memory needs to be compatible with your motherboard: it'll either be DDR, DDR2, DDR3 or DDR4. Smaller SODIMM modules for laptops and mini PCs and ECC memory for servers are all available in this category.

DDR3 Quad Channel 1800MHz+ RAM Memory Kits

DDR3 Quad Channel Memory is a set of four matched memory modules, specifically for Intel X79 Chipset Motherboards which feature four or eight memory slots. Quad channel memory will have a higher bandwidth than a triple (3 memory module) channel memory system. These Memory modules come with a clock speed of 1800Mhz or more (check product specifications), and are available in packs of four modules. Always fit Quad channel memory modules as a complete set to your motherboard.

DDR3 Single/Dual Channel 1800MHz+ RAM Memory Kits

DDR3 memory is the most common memory. Excluding Intel X99, all current generation Intel and AMD desktop chipsets (and many previous generations too) use it. These high-end kits range from 4GB to 16GB with speeds from 1,866MHz to 3,000MHz – you may need to enabled the memory's XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) in your motherboard's BIOS to run it at full speed. Each kit has two identical sticks – they're designed for motherboards with just two slots or with four slots that need to be filled in pairs.

Server DDR3 1600MHz RAM Memory Kits

Available as regular DIMMs or SO-DIMMs for micro-servers, these DDR3 modules are designed for servers and are engineered and clocked to provide rock solid stability 24/7. ECC (error correcting code) modules are immune to errors, while registered/buffered sticks reduce memory controller load and ensure additional stability when using many modules together. Motherboards need to support ECC and registered memory for these features to work.
