Motherboard RAM Upgrades
The motherboard is essentially the very heart of your computer. Your computer’s motherboard contains expansion slots so you can upgrade its RAM as and when you need to do so.
If you have noticed your computer slowing down or struggling to cope with tasks that were once a breeze, you could benefit from increasing the memory capacity of your computer’s motherboard, ensuring it runs smoothly and up to speed.

Why would I need to increase memory?
It’s recommended to add the largest memory upgrade to your motherboard as possible in order to achieve the best performance from your machine. Here at Offtek, our fantastic selection ensures that your computer will be working at full capacity in no time at all.
How much extra memory your motherboard will need depends on what you usually use your computer for, but check to see what the maximum memory is that your motherboard is designed to take. Although you most likely will not need the maximum amount unless you use memory-hungry programs for functions such as video editing or gaming, it is still a good idea to go for the highest memory you can to avoid future issues.
Understanding motherboard memory
Your computer’s RAM is stored on its motherboard, in what are called the DIMM slots. Each motherboard has specific RAM requirements, and it is important that you meet these according to your computer’s specifications. You may be able to install a slightly different kind of RAM than the best one for your computer, but this often results in poor performance and could even lead to a decreased life span for your new memory upgrade.
The RAM your computer can take is identified by two different speed numbers: the PC/PC2/PC3 number and the MHz speed. The PC number refers to the maximum bandwidth, while the MHz speed refers to the speed of the RAM. You will need to ensure that both of these numbers match your motherboard’s requirements.
With an upgrade from Offtek, your motherboard can run much more efficiently, and you can run more complex programs on your computer without suffering any decrease in performance or reliability.
Choosing an upgrade from Offtek
Offtek offers an excellent range of motherboard memory upgrades to choose from. However, it is important to be very sure of what memory upgrade your individual system requires. Try to install RAM that suits the data rate and voltage of your motherboard, as well as the maximum supported memory.
Knowing what type of memory your motherboard uses will make it infinitely easier to choose the appropriate upgrade. However, if this seems a bit complicated, you can trust Offtek to help you select the right type of motherboard memory for your needs.
