  1. there is only single ranke or dual rank, nothing else. if they dont specifiy "dual rank" explicitly, it's single rank. i just found it: https://www.crucial.de/memory/eol_ddr4/ct8g4dfs8266 So this is the difference between the two IDs you posted, one is just newer manufacturing. Total limit for both slots all in all is 32, so 2x16, yes. Singel channel is always supported, and double channel bars can run as single channel.

  2. 8 GB Kit (4 GBx2) | 8 GB Kit (4 GBx2) Single Rank = you will get two 4gb bars, not what you want single rank, dual rank = dual rank is special option, you almost certainly have and want single rank. indeed the part number you posted seems single rank. 8 GB || 8 GB Single Rank | = same thing, probably different charges or submodels tldr: You want to buy the standard "8GB" bar. Or the "16GB". Both should work, 8GB certainly does, if you want 16gb you could google your motherboards id and "mix 8gb 16gbs ram stick" to rule out any performance issues when mixing, but there shoulnt be any issue really.

  3. This is what I found: "A memory rank is a set of DRAM chips connected to the same chip select, which are therefore accessed simultaneously. In practice all DRAM chips share all of the other command and control signals, and only the chip select pins for each rank are separate (the data pins are shared across ranks)." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_rank So basically from what I am reading this just pertains to how big the bus of each memory chip is (don't quote me on this).

  4. Is everything going PRIVATE or knowledge stopped being shared ? Unpacking => Private ... Tutorials(Patching , keygens) ==> Private ... New techniques ==> Private ... knowledge ==> Private .. So what we left for the others for this Scene ?? The only thing that left is nothing some old books and old school techniques and nothing else... Why ?

  5. I think that to add to this, many apps worth reversing nowadays tend to use more sophisticated techniques in the past. In older times, things could be cracked often in mere minutes which was a motivating factor. Most people start with a target in mind, and their patience to learn is quite thin. Nowadays, you may have to learn to unpack, advanced cryptography, anti-debugger techniques, details of security permissions, etc. Windows itself has evolved into a much more complicated beast making the learning curve much steeper. I remember the days of SoftIce and what a wonderful tool that was. Nothing even compares to it to this day. Although there are suitable alternatives, it was trivial to install and get started immediately. Now its a lot of complicated details to get going with tools. We had websites like +Fravia which were simply fantastic reading and offering fun challenges designed to make people think more deeply about reversing, not merely reversing of computer code. How to search was emphasized so much, and this is part of the reason that people became independent solvers. But we have tools like IDA Pro and Ghidra that have also made analysis quite a bit easier. We have faster and more powerful computers and an internet even more full of knowledge, if one knows how to find it. Some knowledge has become obscured by certain mainstreaming and politicizing of information designed to bury other information, and it would be nice to have better searching capability again, not just some commercialized nonsense that has decayed. So high learning curve and people with low patience, and usually choosing their initial motivation as an out of reach target that will require learning a variety of reversing disciplines has raised the bar. My prediction is that when the older generation retires, there will eventually be a new generation who will revitalize the whole thing in their own style. There may even be a generation skip here, as a pretty dead and flat generation can often lead to a really good generation after. One generation trying to make up for their mistakes by raising children better. The rapid spread of technology and social media caught the prior generation by surprise, and has led to a correction generation. If they really need YouTube videos and auto-magic tools, then they will make them and get them. We really have a different style and culture from them, and whether we respect this new way or not, supply and demand will eventually work itself out.
