How to check the maximum RAM memory capacity of my motherboard

Dear Customers, Before you buy RAM you may have the questions …

“How to check the maximum RAM memory capacity of my motherboard ?”

You have several ways to check the maximum storage capacity of your computer/motherboard support?”

If you know the model number of the motherboard, you can write “MB model number” on the official website of the motherboard and there you have the full specification.(how much RAM Memory support and what type of RAM Memory: Example DDR, DD2, DDR3 etc.etc.(Example: You has Asus h81m “model number” and type this name “H81M” on the official Asus website.)

Here you can find the official motherboard-websites for some brands of motherboards.

Or you have another way to check how much RAM Memory capacity your computer/motherboard  supports;(Only how much RAM Memory support. Not the type of RAM Memory support.)

Follow the instructions listed below:

“How to check the maximum storage capacity of my computer support?”

  1. Press the taste “Windows” and “R”, then the “Run” appears.
  2. Enter “cmd”. Then a dialog box appears.
  3. Continue typing with “wmic memphysical maxcapacity”, then press “Enter”
  4. You can then get the number, the unit KB.

For example, as shown in the figure is the number 4,194,304, then put it in this formula.

Xxx / 1024/1024, 4194304/1024/1024 =4. ” it means the computer can support up to 4GB Memory”!

NOTE:

Before upgrade you need to determine if Windows is 32-bit or 64-bit

See this guide for details on checking your copy of Windows. Generally you can see whether Windows is 32- or 64-bit from the System Properties window

(Press the taste “Windows” and “Pause”)

32-bit can support up to 4 GB of RAM

64-bit can support over than 4 GB of RAM
