    Our sales department is always ready to guide you in your choice and to provide you with appropriate advice. We provide advice on frequently asked questions here:

    • Consider carefully which memory is suitable for your device. The memory module for your device must be of the correct type to function. You can find this in the specifications in the manual of the motherboard. Consider carefully which type of memory fits in your device.

      First of all, pay attention to the following rules of thumb:

      Server/Workstation memory DIMM (RDIMM)ECC BUFFEREDREGISTERED

      DIMM and SO-DIMM
      Desktop memory and Server memory is also called DIMM

      Memory modules for notebooks are indicated with SO-DIMM

      However, each type of DDR memory has a different shape and a different number of connection points. These connection points are called pins. Different types of DDR memory cannot be combined with each other in one system.

      (S)DRAM and SRAM
      Modern computers almost always use dynamic RAM, the abbreviation for dynamic RAM is DRAM.

      SDRAM is the current DRAM generation and can be found in almost every computer, smartphone or tablet.

      The term SDRAM is followed by the addition DDR. We make a distinction between DDR-2 / DDR-3 / DDR-4

      SRAM stands for static RAM and is often used in a computer as a CPU cache, a kind of memory aid for the processor in the computer.

      In addition to the SDRAM type, it is also important to look at the clock frequency or clock speed of the memory. This is indicated in MHz (megahertz). A motherboard usually only supports a certain number of clock frequency types, so you have to buy memory that is supported by your motherboard.

      It is recommended that you install RAM in pairs because this improves performance. If you have the choice, also choose two modules from the same manufacturer with the same specifications. For example, if you want a total of 8 gigabytes of main memory, you are better off buying two modules of 4 gigabytes than one of 8 gigabytes. This is advantageous because the motherboard can activate the dual-channel functionality this way, which improves the transfer speed.

    • Hard drive part number

      If you are going to replace your hard drive, you can find the replacement item the quickest based on the item code that is on your hard drive.

      There are multiple article codes and serial numbers on each hard drive.

      In our webshop we usually use the item code that you can find here (1):

      If you do not know this code, you can also search for a 'Bare Drive' (2) or 'Assembly' (3) Harddisk number 

      On our invoices, we usually use the serial number (4) that starts with 'CT:' 

      SSD and HDD

      The most common drives are the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and the SSD (Solid State Drive)

      Unlike an HDD, an SSD contains no moving parts. The data is stored and read from memory chips, instead of a rotating magnetic disk. An SSD is therefore more advanced and faster than an HDD.

      The storage capacity of an HDD is usually larger than that of an SSD in a comparable price range.

      LFF and SFF

      Hard drives come in various sizes. The most common ones are:

      LFFLarge Form Factor3.5 inch
      SFFSmall Form Factor2.5 inch

      SAS / SATA and SCSI

      Hard drives have different types of connections.

      The most common ones are:

      SATAThis is mainly used with desktops and notebooks
      SAS/SATA  This is mainly used with servers and workstations
      SCSIPrecursor to SAS, was used in older-generation servers
