Correction:Can I mix a low vlt 8 gb DDR3L with a 1.5 volt 4 gb DDR3L? Dell E6420 i72720QM
I have a Dell E6420 i72720QM with Win 7 Pro 64 Bit. currently running 8 gb of ram, pushing two external monitors.
I use it as a general purpose full time desktop for real estate appraisal work.
It bogs down with chrome and my appraisal software, sometimes the RAM usage is 67% and it gets glitchy.
The system is rated for 8 b of ram 2x4gb ddr3.
I've read that a few people have got it to accept 2x8gb for a total of 16 gb.
Another source suggested low voltage ram even though specs are for 1.5 volt ram.
I'm not going to do any bios hacking or registry editing to make this work.
Just plug n play.
Since this may or may not work I was going to try 1 stick of 8 gb ddr3l ram along with one of my existing sticks.
If my current sticks are 1.5 volt, can I mix and match 1.3 volt 8 gb stick in there?
