Hi, Hello. I don t know anything about PC installations, but I installed this! How awesome am I? cool beans thanks. It is a great deal for these Rams and they are cheaper than most other big shot brands.
Well Let s talk a bit more about this fabtabulous product. It runs my Windows 64bit Ultimate with greater ease much faster than only having 4 gigs. yess I bought 2 sets of these bringing me to a total of 8 gigs. 4 Dimm slots 2 gigs per slot. I am a Photographer and an Artist so I need all the MegaRams I can get. I often do video editing or large digital paintings and I process a great deal of RAW images from my DSLR on my home computer. So you can see why i wanted such KICKASS MegaRams.
My computer has 3 hard drives and I pull from them as needed sometimes all three at the same time and the time it takes to accomplish this is a great deal less than before. it can handle BIG tasks faster. Video editing from one HDD, Playing Music from another, all while having Adobe RAW editor and bridge opened. I jump around from task but leave the window or program opened for the others. It helps me think on the next cut while I edit some shots and so on.
Render time for ANYTHING is literally cut by half. System boots faster. Photoshop 64bit starts up in about 2 seconds, really! About, very very fast. Installation was a bit difficult being my first time on an install. Tight fit and you have to center them Perfectly before the snaps/clips/MegaRams retainer locking clips secure the memory sticks. if both sides don t click you didn t do it right. You might see them and think they are perfectly aligned but a tiny mm nudge to either side can mean the difference.
In closing at 2 gigs per stick and 4 sticks of Rams for me makes 8-Gigs on a 64 bit OS machine. At 32 bits and 4-gigs of ram my memory was always around 46-52% usage and I didn t really have any programs but an internet browse opened. now at 64 bit and 2 sets of this great Rams with iTunes and only an internet browser opened I m at 18-22% usage. frees up a great deal quite fitting as it is a great deal in my opinion.
