For a computer system to efficiently carry out its standard operations and execute various programs, it requires memory for data handling. On standard motherboards, a device known as a memory socket, memory slot, or RAM slot is provided for the insertion of computer memory. Depending on the configuration of the motherboard, there may be two to four memory slots, and the slot types present will dictate what type of RAM may be inserted. In this blog, we will discuss memory sockets and RAM more in detail, allowing you to know how to procure compatible computer hardware for your computer system.

Random Access Memory, commonly known as RAM, is a type of computer memory that can be read and changed in any order, typically used to store dynamic data and machine code. RAM is a critical component of the computer hardware found in desktop computers, laptops, gaming consoles, smartphones, tablets, and more. In its simplest terms, RAM is the memory space electronic devices used to store the varying small pieces of information on said device. RAM is most commonly in the form of integrated circuits, a type of computer chip. Integrated circuits are a volatile chip, meaning the information stored on them is lost once the device is turned off. RAM consists of both multiplexing and demultiplexing circuitry to connect the data lines to the proper storage system for reading or writing the entry.
