hardware help WTF kind of Ram is this?!?

37 posts in this topic

I'm sorry, but, what do you mean by "registered"? Is it a very special type of ram designed for a specific mobo?

Edit: Heh. I looked it up. What type of mobo and processor would I need? Is it worth using it? Just Junk?

Not really worth the time or money to use this.

lol as soon i saw that RAM i thought it must be an ECC DIMM RAM or an old RAMBUS; then i felt old that most of you guys never saw that.

to the OP: i sold a couple of years ago 32MB SIMM for alot of cash because old memory is scarce and there's still systems that used that, you might get lucky by putting that on ebay.

Yeah. I'm thinking about that. How much should I sell them for? 20 bucks a piece? How do I know how many MB they are? Do I sell them in sets of 2 or single? Is there a way to even test that they work (without building a computer)? They are in really good shape, just dusty.

well, you could buy this http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1174 but that's overkill :); that's the problem with old hardware; if you don't have the hardware to test that (like an old pc) it's gonna be hard to test that (and to sell if you don't know if it works). having saying that check the prices at ebay or your local autions like that to get an ideia how valueble those mems are today.

EDO (Extended Data Out) is very old-school RAM. (We're talking original 66MHz Pentium here). The one that you have is most likely from an old server. Not much use for it nowadays. Most machines in the last 10 years or so will be using some form of DDR (Double Data Rate) RAM. The only people you really would be able to sell it to would be either someone looking to fix up an old school machine for nestalgia reasons, or someone who just likes to collect old PC hardware. I think I still have a few sticks of EDO somewhere from an old Pentim machine. (As well as some really old 30-pin DIMMS that I used on my old Gravis Ultrasound sound card...) I may have tossed it out however in my last basement purge/cleanup session... You could always try tossing it up on EBay, but I wouldn't expect much. My guess is that they are probaly in the 4MB to 8MB size. Maybe 16MB, but that might be pushing it...

It's worth a shot, at least. The worst that could happen is it won't sell and it'll collect dust in my closet. I've never used eBay before so I'll do some research on that. I know you need a PayPal account, but other than that, IDK. I know Xyphus in real life, so I'm sure he could help me. :happy:

LOL! Anybody want to buy some?

there's still business that have old servers with ultra old legacy software that doesn't have any modern port; i know because i have one client with just that.

LMAO

i've had a Pentium MMX 200Hz with 256MB of RAM booting Windows 2000 in a couple of minutes (enough time to drink a coffe); when i installed XP on that same puter i could eat dinner while it was booting and sometimes it wasn't enough :woot:

i've even made some photoshops designs in that same puter :rofl:
