RAMMon – RAM Information Utility

Ciaran Moore - October 13, 2010

A lot of people know how much RAM is in their PC, and perhaps the type and speed, but after that the details get a little fuzzy. That could be a potential issue if, for example, you are considering adding extra RAM to your computer, or perhaps do some memory over-clocking.

It’s not necessary to open your machine to discover more, though. Simply run PassMark’s latest release RAMMon, it will access the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data on your memory modules, and immediately let you know everything you ever needed to find out about your RAM setup.

This begins with the basics: the number of DIMMs you have, which sort (DDR2 or DD3, for example), capacity, the memory slots that are occupied, and any that are free and available, altogether very useful if (for instance) you’re running the program on a system your considering purchasing.

It also has details like the DIMM’s manufacturer and part number, which will help out if you’re considering adding more RAM and would like to make sure it’s compatible. RAMMon also has a “Search!” link that opens a browser window at Amazon.com, displaying matching DIMMs.

The program provides extensive details on the CAS latencies supported by these DIMMs, and all your other memory timings, crucial information if you’re planning to fine-tune these for a PC performance boost.

There are competing utilities around that accomplish something similar, but RAMMon reveals more information than most, and so if you need to find out more about your RAM configuration then it’s certainly a great place to start.

This program is free for personal use, but companies must purchase a licence, with prices starting at $15.
