What RAM do I have ? CAS Latencies etc.

Hi, I know I've got 2*1GB Corsair XMS2 PC6400 800MHz sticks in my PC Specialist pc. I just phoned them and was told the latency was 5 but he didn't sound too sure of himself. Is there a way to tell so I can match them up exactly with 2 new sticks I intend buying. Either a software solution or can you tell by physically looking at them (couldn't be bothered disconnecting and opening up case, removing stick etc ) unless I really have to. TIA.

Thanks terryf, tried that, but the crucial scanner cant tell me the details I need. It tells me I can use PC2-4200, PC2-5300, and PC2-6400 memory and gives me 43 choices to buy. I'm using SIW click here which tells you lots of things about your system but not too much info on the memory. Does Sandra or Everest give this info ?

The best hardware info utility I've seen is PC Wizard. click here
I'm a fan of Belarc, but PC Wizard has all sorts of info with drilling down for even more. Have a look.

lenc, Thanks very much. What a great utility, told me all I needed plus a lot more.That's staying installed I think. ;-)

I'll tick this.
