I have tried aida, everest, sis sandra, they only tell me how much memory i have, i need to order more thus need to know the speed so that i can order the right type. the mother board is a intel SE7500CW2. i could take the cover off and remove the ram but it is very unlikely that i will get the chance to power down the server. Also whats the difference between low profile memory

thanks

Hi exdos,
You said you tried AIDA - have you checked AIDA -> Motherboard -> SPD ?
The thing is, you'll have to shut it down anyway once you'll install the memory.

Another reason to actuallly look at the installed memory is the following:
How man slots do have available/used. Your preferred module size will depend on that.


Cheers!

'Low-Profile' memory is just memory that is 'shorter' for installations where space is at a premium (such as micro/cube PC's)

You say the machine is a server, can you identify it on one of the memory distributors websites? (I know crucial and kingston both have sections where you select your pc/motherboard and it quotes you compatible memory)

hi thanks for  the info
i do know that the memory is either 200 or 266 mhz, by identifying if it is 20 or 266 i can then order the correct type

In Everest, look under Motherboard in the SPD section - that will tell you what type and speed your memory is.  Make sure you have version 2.20.

It's probably mentioned within the bootup process, or running something like memtest (www.memtest86.com) will tell you, but they both require reboots! :)
