Hi Mark, everybody. I' ve been toying with the idea of upgrading my DAW. I'm not sure what RAM to pick; there are several specs I don't understand. Could someone clue me in? First, is there any real, well defined reason for using name brand RAM over generic? There are order sites out there that claim the generic stuff is only compatible with a couple of SiS chipsets. I have seen other people use generic RAM with VIA, AMD, and NVidia chipsets with no apparent problems. I'm just wondering if there's any truth to this compatability issue. What are CAS latency values? What is the difference between 4 layer and 6 layer modules? What is meant by 64x4 and 32x8? Thanks in advance.
