Does anyone know where I can go on my computer to find out my RAM speed without tearing the computer apart to look at my RAM to find out?

Hi lostsoul :)

If you want, you can download and install Speccy from Piriform, which will give you all the information you need on your RAM: brand, model, size, clocking speed, etc. Its free and easy to use.

Every time I download a simple program I go into control panel and fine about 6 useless programs so is there anyway to find out without downloading something?

Speccy doesn't bundle any programs if you download it from the official website, which I linked. What are you interested in knowing exactly? How much RAM your system have?

Where do I look? Couldn't find it under memory. I'm looking to see if I have 1333, 1600 or whatever on my RAM

I don't think that msinfo32 will display that kind of information, hence why I recommended you Speccy. Here.

This is what you'll see if you use Speccy.

There are download sites which allow authors of programs to generate extra income by letting third party software to be bundled in their download.  But you can avoid this simply by using the Custom installation option.  The Custom installation will show all of the third party programs.  These often will already have a check in the box to accept them, all you have to do is remove the check if you don't want the program.  Another trick they will pull is to present all of the third party programs before the one that you intended to download.  You have to read these carefully because at first glance they appear to be the program you meant to install.  You have the option to "skip" these most of the time.

 

The instructions below include a link to download Speccy from Bleeping Computer.  I guarantee this will not include any third party software.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download. 
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I always find CPU-Z does the job. It is light and easy to use. You can download it here http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

CPU-Z or Speccy will both do the job. But Speccy gives way more information on a system than CPU-Z, hence why I recommend it :P

hmmm, that could be right @Aura... however, the TS did mention he just needs info regarding the speed and capacity of his RAM, which I find CPU-Z to be perfect for that.  :thumbup2:
