There are 6 RAM slots.
What I don't know, is how to determine what the "specs" are for my current RAM and which of those parameters must be precisely matched.
I know that I need DDR3 RAM, but there are apparently different types of DDR3 RAM .
As I stated earlier, I don't understand the significance of the various memory specs.
Comparing these examples, which are all 240 pin SDRAM DDR3, what are the differences between them and which differences are significant?
OCZ Reaper HPC 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Cas Latency: 9
CORSAIR XMS3 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Cas Latency: 9
CORSAIR XMS3 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Cas Latency: 9
I am guessing that the numbers immediating following DDR3 (1333,1600,1866) are the Mhz, but should they be the same as what the computer already has?
