I was reading one of the guides and saw that different RAM types did better in timers and stuff like that so I went to look at the kind of RAM that I had. It didnt have anything in big bold letters but all the little moduals on the RAM stick said samsung on them. I wanted to know, is this the make of the stick or am I looking in the wrong spot? I didnt get packaging with the stick because I buy my parts whole sale. I just got it in a static proof bag.

You can download CPUZ from Cpuid.com and that will most likely identify your ram.

The samsung markings on the chips are no good for an indicator because there's many different memory manufacturers that use samsung mem chips.

the print on the chips is the maker of the chips themselves, not the ram. there should be a sticker around there somewhere its on either side

Oki, Ill try that site. Thanks
I poped out the RAM again and took another look at it. All thats on it is a "Your warinty expires if you remove this sticker" sticker. Thanks for the suggestions

download "everest home edition" (google it) and install it. It will tell you everything, under the motherboard tab and click on the button that says SPD. It will tell you exactly what it is.
