Interactive Memory Product ID guide to decode RAM part numbers E-mail

DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules can be overclocked very simple over the BIOS to get a better PC performance. We have already tested several memory modules regarding the maximum overclocking result in the hardware test section, but memory modules are equipped with different RAM chips, so the RAM overclocking results can differ. Depending upon production it is possible that high-end ICs are used on inexpensive memory modules which are underclocked on standard settings. For this reason there are extensive discussions in some forums about the respective RAM chip used on memory modules. A well-known example is e.g. the designation D9GMH of the memory manufacturer Micron, which can be enormously overclocked. But what does this frequently mentioned part marking like e.g. Micron D9GMH, D9HNH, etc. exactly mean and how can one discover on basis of the part number how much megabyte or gigabyte memory RAM modules have? For these questions I have build this new Script to calculate and decode the RAM designation, which is already available in similar form for AMD Athlon64, AMD SocketA and for Intel processors. In the version 1.0 the most common DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 Micron ICs are already integrated for decoding and of course more manufacturers and other enhancements will follow soon. We have already an extensive RAM topic with several RAM overclocking results in our hardware forum and we look forward to your memory module results and/or experiences. OC Inside
