PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM/Memory cards replacing RAM modules.


Dear Flinix

Is it possible to replace RAM modules and cache memory with Memory cards in the motherboard?.

If not, Could there be advantages in motherboard Design changes implementation?.


No. RAM is WAY faster than any form of memory cards AND memory cards are meant for storage where as RAM is only intended for short term memory storage and is constantly being written to more than a regular memory card could ever handle without burning up.

I can answer most No POST problems, compatibility between parts, upgrade options, troubleshooting, etc. Before you ask me a question, please do some research. I do not give PC speed reviews for video games.


Many, many years of experience working with the hardware components of many types of computers including desktops, laptops, kiosk computers, and even running Windows 3.1, 95, and 98 on the PSP (Sony PlayStation Portable). I've replaced capacitors on desktop motherboards making them working like new again with a high success rate. This is my hobby/job every day.
