Help w/identifying Kingston RAM

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

So I've got 4GB of Kingston HyperX ram in my system...Problem is, I don't remember what speed these puppies were supposed to run at. I *thought* they were 1800Mhz, but I'm second guessing myself.

Well Whiz, why don't you simply open your case and read the part number, silly?

...My system, you see, is dunked in 8 gallons of mineral oil stun.gif Yeah...I don't feel like getting all sloppy right now.

I used CPU-Z, and I was able to get the serial number and this number: 99U5403-028.A00LF

Can anyone make sense of that. I called Kingston and they said they can't reverse look-up serial numbers...Riiiiiiight. gunner.gif

Thoughts?

this is the timing : DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM 8-8-8-22 and your mother board will say so but they are good for 1800.

I saw that website...But I'm not sure if that's accurate. I need to know the timings for 1800, as well as the voltage. Any other thoughts?

Probably because

I would've thought with the information you got from CPU-Z, you'd be able to find the specs for the modules, non?

Kingston got back to me. I'm not sure if I trust them completely (or if they're just trying to get rid of me). I think I have KHX1800C9D3K2/4G.

Which is 1800Mhz 9-9-9-27 @1.9v

So my next question is...Do you guys recommend higher frequency or tighter timings?
