What is SDRAM? What is it compatible with?

 Share

Hello I am working on a new PC build and I am confused with my RAM choice. It is listed as SDRAM and I am wondering what SDRAM is and if its compatible with my build. Here is a link to pcpartpicker.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

All that money and no SSD? trust me you need one, it makes a bigger difference than you think, and I don't just mean game load times.

The power supply is a little too beefy for the task at hand, but you already bought it so whatever, it works.

At first glance, the case would appear to have bad airflow due to the closed off front panel. Have you checked out videos about its airflow?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

All DDR memory is SDRAM, so no need to worry about it.

 

It stands for Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory by the way. You can find more information here: https://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/SDRAM-synchronous-DRAM

I already own a pretty new 512GB SSD from WD that's why there is no SSD in that build. The case also can pop open in the front to allow more airflow as well as the top but I will look into that more.
