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.
