Bought wrong memory
« on: June 20, 2021, 20:57:29 »
Well I've bought a stick of memory for my computer and ordered the wrong speed . I spent half a day looking for the best deals and bought DDR4 2400 instead of DDR4 2666 . It's on its way and I should have it by Saturday . I am still going to use it but there we are , gonna slow my ram down a bit but hopefully it will off set against the performance increase from having more ram and be about the same as it is now. I guess I'm gonna find out at the  end of next week when it gets here. I paid £27.33 for 8gb including shipping and it's new . Before I fit it I'll do a test with a couple of my games then after and see what it does to the frame rate. I'll post again so you guys can see what effect it has . Have a nice evening .

good to hear it all worked in the end. You might need to tinker with the motherboard to get the correct memory speed - my advice is 'if it works fine and you're happy... leave it alone' :)

Just been testing my latest game out and I'm getting way more frames per second than I was before which is awesome and made the upgrade worthwhile . I thought it might be ten percent better at best but how wrong was I . I have had a play with the graphics settings too and that and the extra memory have practically doubled my frame rate . The memory was 27.33 including VAT from aliexpress and took 2 weeks to get here . I am gobsmacked at what a difference it has made especially for the money . Have an awesome day. Oh yes the make is ZENFAST 8gb 2400 ddr4 board.
