There's a couple ways to do this. Note that most RAM makers have RAM "wizards" that will scan your computer/motherboard, or prompt you for motherboard brand and model numbers, and determine compatible RAM. Here are some of the more popular ones:
- Memory Advisor
- Memory Finder (manual data entry only)
- Memory Configurator (manual data entry only)
- Memory Search (manual data entry only)
Or, you can visit your motherboard's website and check out the QVL - qualified vendors list - for compatible RAM. The QVLs (one for RAM and one for CPUs) for your board can be found here
. Note there are too many RAM makers and RAM modules for board makers to test and list them all, so you don't have to buy listed RAM, but you do need to buy RAM with the same specs as listed RAM.
