  • Memory compatible with F2-8800CL5D-4GBPI?

    I've seen similar posts about this memory (and similar memory), but haven't gotten a good sense of compatible memory for an upgrade.

    Specs for my current memory:
    F2-8800CL5D-4GBPI - 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1100 (PC28800), 5-5-5-15@1.8-1.9V
    (I'm currently running at 1066, 5-5-5-15 @ 1.8V)

    Two choices I've found (feel free to suggest others):
    F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ - 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800 (PC26400), 5-5-5-15@1.8-1.9V
    F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ - 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1000 (PC28000), 5-5-5-15@2.0-2.1V

    The first set matches the timings and voltages, but I'd have to drop to 800. The second set is closer to the 1066 I'm running at (still not quite there), but I'd have to bump up my voltages to as much as 2.1V... not sure what that would do to my current set.

    What's the better approach here? Does anyone know of a more-compatible set?

    Of the two I'd suggest the F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ since the voltage is more in line with your current sticks. Using the other set would prob require at least 2.0 to 2.1 since it will be 4 sticks, which may be to much for your current set.

    An alternative might be to go with the F2-5300CL4D-4GBPQ (available at the Egg), this is basically the same as what you chose but is might be able to get this set up to 1066 @ CL5 (5-5-5-15 CR @ 2T)
