Default Software reads RAM

Is there an open-source program that can read the brand and other details about the RAM modules on a computer?

CPU-Z

CPU-Z CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Not open source but does what you want.

Thanks a lot!

3 PCs with a single memory module in each. HP Pro 3500. 2 of them have elixir brand and 1 has a different one (I lost the name). The screen shot shows "Nanya Technology" for elixir, but it does not show the other brand. What could be the reason for not showing the brand on PC # 1393?

Most likely cheaper or off-brand RAM that doesn't have the info registered in the RAM's chips; or it's a brand that CPU-Z doesn't know how to read.
