Frequently Asked Questions
How much can I sell used RAM memory for?
There is a wide variety of RAM models available in the market: different types of DDR, different brands, different models, etc. Thus, the resale value of your used RAM memory can vary depending on the following factors:

Types: most RAMs available today are DDR SDRAMs, and there have been five major iterations of DDR SDRAMs over the past two decades. DDR5 is the latest iteration, being very recently released (and still not very common today in 2022), and the other versions are DDR, DDR2, DDR3, and DDR4. Most computers nowadays use DDR4, but there are still those who are still using DDR3 (meaning, DDR3 RAMs still have some value).

Capacity: the bigger the capacity of the used memory you are looking to sell (in GB), the more expensive the RAM will be.

Size: there are SO-DIMM (Small Outline Dual In-Line Memory Module) for laptops and DIMM for desktops and servers.

Clock Speed: the higher the clock speed (measured in MHz), typically the more expensive the RAM memory will be when you sell it.

Bandwidth: whether the RAM memory is single-channel, dual-channel, or quad-channel.

Obviously, the condition of the RAM memory would also matter. The better the condition is, the more money you will get when you sell your old memory.

Where can I sell used RAM memory?

Basically, you have three major options in selling your used RAM memory:

  1. Finding your own buyers on peer-to-peer marketplaces (like eBay), you have the most freedom in setting your prices and "promoting" your used RAM, but it can be difficult to find the right buyer willing to purchase the RAM(s) at your terms.
  2. Listing your used RAM on classified sites like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or even Amazon. It's typically easier to find buyers on these platforms when compared to on peer-to-peer marketplaces, but you'll have less freedom.
  3. Selling your used memory to specialist IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) companies that will take the goods off your hands. The easiest and quickest option (and you can still sell your old RAM at a fair market price). If you are planning to sell in bulk, or if you just want to quickly sell your used memory, then selling to an ITAD company may be the most viable option.


How can I sell my old RAM memory? 

Basically you can sell your old RAM in just a few simple steps: 


Step 1: Evaluate the condition

Remove the RAM from your PC, laptop, or server if you haven't already, and then assess its condition. If it's dirty, clean it, and you can clean the contacts with a pencil (rubber) eraser. Simply lay the RAM module down on a flat (and clean) surface, and then rub the eraser in short strokes back-and-forth along with the contacts until it's clean. Wipe the RAM with a clean and dry cloth to remove the eraser fillings.

After it's clean, try reattaching the RAM to your computer to see if it still works. 


Step 2: Know your RAM module

If you've confirmed that the RAM module is working properly, then you should identify the RAM module's exact model to determine its resale value. 

If the RAM module has a visible brand/model name or serial number on it, then this process of selling your used memory should be fairly easy. 


Step 3: Taking pictures

Take photos of your RAM module(s), so you can show them to prospective buyers. Make sure you capture the RAM module's serial number and model name (if it's visible on the product). It's also important to be honest: if there are any defects on the product, make sure it's captured in the photos.


Step 4: Finding buyers

Find prospective buyers, whether listing your used memory on classified sites, peer-to-peer marketplaces, or contacting an ITAD specialist company like Big Data Supply Inc.


Step 5: Packaging and shipping

Once you've found a buyer, then what's left is to package and ship the RAM module(s) to the buyer. Some ITAD companies may also offer to pick up your goods on your premises, especially if you are selling used memory in bulk.


Does RAM memory hold personal information? 

No, all types of RAM modules used in computers are volatile. Meaning they absolutely need power in order to maintain data. No data is permanently saved in your RAM module, and even if there is any personal information temporarily stored in the RAM module, once the module is unplugged from a computer unit (and loses power), all data stored within is 100% eradicated.


What can I do with old RAM memory?

Basically, you have three main options with your used RAM modules:

  1. Throw it away/recycle it
  2. Repurpose it (i.e., using it on another computer)
  3. Sell your old memory for extra cash

Which one is the best option for your old RAM module? It depends on several key factors:

  • Condition: if the RAM unit no longer works well, then your only option is to dispose of it or recycle it. If it's still working but not in perfect condition, you can probably still sell or repurpose the module. 
  •  Resale value: pretty self-explanatory. If the resale value of the RAM module is still fairly high, then obviously, selling it is a viable option. However, if the resale value is relatively low despite it being in fairly good condition, then you might be better off repurposing the RAM.
  • Replacement cost: if you are planning to replace the RAM unit with a newer one (upgrade), then selling the RAM memory too soon when the replacement unit is still too expensive can be an issue. It's better to wait a bit until the replacement RAM module's price has gone off before selling the old RAM memory.
