  • Will this memory work here?

    I am helping a friend put his computer back online after a power surge.
    But I don't know if the memory will work in the new mobo he purchased.
    After looking up his CPU in the supported list I found that he can use it.

    CPU
    e4500 2.2 GHz 800 MHz FSB

    BL2KIT12864AL1065.000
    1066Mhz PC8500

    # Revolution energy saving design with DES Advanced featuring hardware based Dynamic 4-Gear switching
    # Supports 45nm Intel® Core™ 2 multi-core processors with FSB 1600 MHz
    # Dual channel DDR2 1333+ for remarkable system performance

    Will the memory work?

    Looks like it should be fine to me, that mobo can handle speeds of DDR2 up to 1333 so 1066 should not be a problem

      Looks like you have a stick of Crucial Ballistix Tracer. Your MB supports up to 1333mhz with regards to RAM so your friend's memory should be compatible. If you mix and match with any other sticks though it will run at the speed of the slowest stick.

      EDIT: Looks like Reaper beat me to it - so there's your answer, we can't both be wrong!

        Well, you Can....But you're not.

        Short of there being a specific incompatibility between that motherboard and that stick of ram, you should be fine.

          The 1066 is going to be a waste though with that CPU. It's fsb speed won't let u use 1066 fully, so 800 might be cheaper and just as good.

            Hopefully it's just a mobo swap.
            He's having a heck of a time posting and it will only post once every 20 tries if he's lucky. After that it works except he can't use any of his PATA cd drives and only a couple of the SATA ports work.
