High Speed and Capacity

The A2257179 is a type of DDR2 SDRAM (Double Data Rate 2 Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory) module produced by Dell, with a capacity of 8GB and a clock speed of 667MHz.

"PC2-5300" refers to the memory's peak transfer rate of 5.3 GB/s, which is calculated as the product of the clock speed (667 MHz) and the number of bits transferred per clock cycle (64 bits).

"ECC" stands for Error Correcting Code, which is a type of memory that can detect and correct errors in data as it is being processed. This makes ECC memory more reliable and less prone to crashes and data corruption.

"Registered" memory, also known as "buffered" memory, adds a buffer between the memory controller and the DRAM modules. This allows for larger memory modules and improves signal integrity, which helps prevent errors and improves stability.

In terms of high speed and capacity, the A2257179 module is designed for use in servers and other high-performance computing applications that require large amounts of memory and reliable performance. The 8GB capacity allows for the storage of large amounts of data, while the 667MHz clock speed and ECC/Registered features provide fast and accurate data processing capabilities. Overall, this type of memory is ideal for demanding computing tasks such as virtualization, database management, and scientific simulations.

Energy Efficiency

A2257179 is the part number for Dell's 8GB DDR2 SDRAM ECC Registered RAM module. DDR2 SDRAM is a type of computer memory technology that was widely used in the early 2000s.

When it comes to energy efficiency, DDR2 SDRAM is not as power-efficient as newer DDR3 and DDR4 memory technologies. This is because DDR2 SDRAM requires a higher voltage to operate (1.8 volts) compared to DDR3 (1.5 volts) and DDR4 (1.2 volts).

However, the energy efficiency of a RAM module is not just determined by the voltage it requires to operate. The power consumption of a RAM module also depends on factors such as its operating frequency, the number of memory chips on the module, and the design of the module's circuitry.

In terms of energy efficiency, ECC (Error Correction Code) and Registered memory modules like the A2257179 tend to be less energy-efficient compared to non-ECC and unbuffered memory modules. This is because ECC and Registered modules require extra circuitry to perform their error-correcting and buffering functions, which can consume more power.

Improved Gaming Performance

The A2257179 is a specific model of 8GB RAM module designed for use in Dell servers and workstations. It operates at a clock speed of 667MHz and uses DDR2 SDRAM technology with ECC (Error Correcting Code) and Registered memory features.

In terms of gaming performance, upgrading your computer's RAM can help improve overall system performance, particularly in games that require more memory to run smoothly. However, the impact of RAM on gaming performance is usually less significant compared to other components such as the CPU and GPU.

The benefits of using ECC and Registered memory depend on the specific use case. ECC memory is designed to detect and correct errors that may occur during data storage or transmission, which is particularly useful in servers and other mission-critical applications. Registered memory, on the other hand, helps to reduce electrical load on the memory controller, allowing for more stable operation and improved reliability.

About New Bulk Pack Products

New Bulk Pack products come with clamshell boxes and do not have any manufacturer warranty. Many times manufacturers disassemble whole units to use parts or pulled from a new system. Typically, this product doesn't come with software or instructions unless indicated and no Manufacturer’s genuine warranty. You can take note these are not brand new products.


Please choose your location for calculate shipping cost.


ALLHDD guarantees that the products will not have defects in material that will affect the product's functionality during the Standard Warranty Period. The warranty period starts when the merchandise/items from our warehouse.

What does ALLHDD.Com warranty cover?

30-days to 3 years warranty:

Replacement or refund. In the case of material defects, we will try to replace the product first. The product will be replaced before the expiration of the original warranty. For any failure of hardware, if we cannot process the replacement of the product(s)/model(s), we will refund the original selling/invoiced price. The shipping costs and sales tax, if any, are non-refundable. ALLHDD retains the right to decide whether the item(s) will process for replacement or refund.

What is not covered by our warranty?

The reason why our warranty does not cover any problem caused by the following conditions:

(a) misuse of hardware; accidental damage; carelessness product(s) damage; shock; temperature beyond the specification of any product; faulty installation; operation; modification of goods;

(b) any misuse outside the instructions in the user manual for any specific product;

(c) damaged caused by other hardware or equipment. The warranty will void if the item is returned with physical damage, damage to the retail box, removed from the box, counterfeit labels/labelled by them, or any modifications of internal and external covers. Data loss or damages to any other equipment we do not cover by our offered warranty.

What is the Manufacturer/Brand Warranty?

In general, a manufacturer's warranty service/support is a written guarantee to the buyer of a product. Its terms assure the replacement or repair of the product, if necessary, within a specified period after the purchase (2-5 years depending on the brand/manufacturer). It is typically included in the price of the product. Products are brand new and sealed and the original manufacturer box is complete with the Manufacturer's genuine warranty. For most of the brand new/retail products that come with the manual and box, exceptions may apply (i.e., Cisco, Juniper Networks).

For the server parts (i.e., Dell, HPE) to get Full coverage of the warranty server must have a full 3- 5 years warranty. However, ALLHDD.COM will cover the warranty duration if any Manufacturer doesn't support the advertised warranty and there is no refund for those.
Final Sale items are non-returnable/refundable in any situation. Any question? please ask our team before the shipment.
