SNPWX731CK2/8G is an 8GB memory module made by Dell, specifically designed for servers. It consists of two 4GB DDR2 SDRAM FBDIMMs, which are ECC registered and operate at a frequency of 800MHz. In this article, we will explain the specifications of this memory module and discuss its features and benefits.
DDR2 SDRAM stands for Double Data Rate Two Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory. It is a type of volatile memory used in computers for storing data temporarily. The term "double data rate" means that the memory can send and receive data twice per clock cycle, which results in faster data transfer rates than traditional SDRAM.
ECC stands for Error-Correcting Code. ECC memory is designed to detect and correct errors that occur during data storage and retrieval. This is important in server environments where data integrity is crucial. ECC memory uses a special algorithm to check for errors and correct them automatically. Registered memory, on the other hand, adds a buffer between the memory controller and the memory chips, which helps to reduce the load on the controller and improve stability.
FBDIMM stands for Fully Buffered Dual In-line Memory Module. FBDIMMs are a type of memory module that use a special buffer chip to improve data transfer rates and reduce signal noise. The buffer chip is located between the memory controller and the memory chips, and it acts as an intermediary between the two. FBDIMMs use a 240-pin interface, which is different from the 184-pin interface used by traditional DIMMs.
CL stands for CAS Latency, which is a measure of the delay between the time a memory controller requests data from memory and the time the data is available. The lower the CAS Latency, the faster the memory. In the case of SNPWX731CK2/8G, the CAS Latency is 6.
PC2-6400 is a type of DDR2 memory that operates at a frequency of 800MHz. The "PC" in the name stands for Personal Computer, and the number represents the maximum bandwidth in megabytes per second (MB/s). In the case of PC2-6400, the maximum bandwidth is 6400MB/s.
SNPWX731CK2/8G is an 8GB memory module that consists of two 4GB DDR2 SDRAM FBDIMMs. This configuration allows for better performance and stability than using a single 8GB module. It also provides some level of redundancy, as one module can continue to operate if the other fails.
Benefits of SNPWX731CK2/8G
The SNPWX731CK2/8G memory module is specifically designed for use in servers. It provides several benefits over traditional memory modules:
- Improved Data Transfer Rates: The FBDIMM architecture used in SNPWX731CK2/8G improves data transfer rates by reducing signal noise and increasing signal strength. This results in faster access times and improved system performance.
- Error Correction: The ECC feature of SNPWX731CK2/8G detects and corrects errors that occur during data storage and retrieval. This ensures data integrity and reduces the risk of data loss or corruption.
- Increased Stability: The use of registered memory in SNPWX731CK2/8G reduces the load on the memory controller and improves stability. This is important in server environments where system uptime is critical.
- Redundancy: The use of two 4GB modules instead of a single 8GB module provides some level of redundancy.

About New Bulk Pack Products
Do you have a computer with a motherboard configured for the DDR2 memory modules? Chances are you want to get the best out of your system in terms of performance. If all of these catch your fancy, then you are just at the right spot for top-quality PC2 modules with unbeatable performance. Allhdd.com is home to some of the best PC2-6400 modules, compatible with some of the well-known brands. Our collection includes the 4GB and the 8GB variants.
The PC2 6400 Memory Module
Improving your system's performance can be achieved by simply adding more memory to your PC. The PC2 6400 RAM series presents the ideal memory modules for stability and speed. The PC2-6400 (240-Pin DDR2 800 SDRAM) can conveniently move your system into the fast lane. The DDR2 PC2-6400 (generally regarded as the DDR2-800) module is a DDR2 memory device for use in motherboards featuring a front-side bus of 400MHz. The number "6400" indicates the maximum amount of data the memory can transfer per second which is 6400 Megabytes, and is the module's bandwidth. DDR2-800 is backward-compatible for DDR2-533 and DDR2-667.
Memory Clock Speed
The PC2-6400 memory chips can work at 800 MHz. It is otherwise referred to as the RAM's memory clock speed. The RAM's speed does not change how fast the CPU can go, even when hyper-threaded or overclocked. However, it can slow the CPU down if there is ample space in the RAM or not.
I/O bus clock
The I/O bus clock refers to half the bus transfer speed. The PC2-6400 (DDR2 800) has a bus clock of 400MHz.
Considerations Before Investing in a Memory Module
Even though the 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM is an excellent memory module for your system, it remains that there are a few things to keep in mind before you click the "Add to Cart" button. Not all memory is best suited for your system; there is a little homework to do before investing in RAM. Here are some factors to consider.
First up is the RAM form factor. There are two main types of RAM form factors: the DIMM form factor for desktop computers and the SO-DIMM for laptops. Thus, you should buy a SO-DIMM type of RAM if you have a laptop PC and vice versa.
This is crucial because earlier generation DDR memory is not compatible with motherboards built to work with newer generation DDR memory and the other way round. DIMM slots in motherboards are explicitly designed to support a particular memory generation. Consequently, you can't install DDR2 memory in a motherboard featuring DDR3 DIMM slots.
Amount of RAM
Power users will need more RAM to handle highly-demanding applications than conventional system users. This is needless to say that you should consider the system's workload before choosing a RAM. The right amount of RAM on the computer facilitates better performance and the capacity to sustain various applications.
