Hi all

I have Acer 5920 laptop which has DDR2 667mhz ram, for some time i was facing ram problem so i decided to buy another 2gb so it can be 2gb + 2gb =4 gb

 

 

I bought from ebay now it comes to me but i found it is DDR2 800mz ram so can anybody confirm that i can use it with 667mhz or i will have any problem.

 

Thanks in advance

Travel to crucial.com for a verified ram speed compatibility. However, the specification shows it should be 667 mhz only.

Can't we use 800mz as only 667 mhz?

Generally, yes. DDR2 memory rated for 800Mhz should run at 667Mhz. However, laptops tend to be quite finicky. I would suggest taking the time to locate the memory your machine calls for.


Laptop: Alienware 14 : Intel i7 4700mq : 8GB ram : Nvidia GTX 765 : 256GB Plextor M3 : 1080P IPS display

Test rig: AMD Phenom X4 955 @ 4.0Ghz : MSI 970A-G46 : 8GB Ram : 128GB Plextor M5s : 2x AMD 5770's (Flashed to 6770) : PC Power and Cooling Silencer 750 : Pioneer BR

Hackintosh : Gigabyte GA-H61m : Intel Celeron @ 3Ghz : 8GB ram : EVGA GTX 550Ti : Patriot Torx 2 64GB : Silverstone Strider ES-50 : OSX Mavericks

If the machine is designed for 667Mhz ram, then go with what it calls for.
