My PC Specifications:


Processor: Intel Core i3-4130 CPU @ 3.40 GHz

Motherboard: Asus H81M-E

Memory: Transcend 2GB DIMM DDR3 1333 MHz

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit


Dear friends,


I will be using windows 7 64 bit so intend to install a 4GB DDR3L ram in place of the current 2GB DDR3 ram. Will DDR3L ram work with the current motherboard and processor? 


The current processor is EOL (end of life). In case the current processor dies out and I need to buy either 5th or 6th or 7th generation processor along with respective compatible motherboard, can I use DDR3L ram in such processors and motherboards, in the future? Will 5th - 7th generation processor compatible motherboards support DDR3L ram? I don't want to buy DDR4 ram right now since it won't work with the current motherboard. I want to upgrade the ram (discarding the present) in such a way so that the new ram could be used for current and future generation processors and motherboards without a hassle.


Thanks in advance.
