Hi Everyone,

I currently have 2 x 2 Gig sticks of CM2X2048-8500C5 (DDR2 1066MHz) memory installed in my computer. I am aware that this RAM is no longer manufactured however I would like to upgrade my computer to 8 Gigs of RAM without going to the trouble of upgrading my motherboard / processor & RAM.

I have searched online and found some CM2X2048-8500C5D RAM (the only difference that I can see with this RAM when compared to my existing RAM is the marketing slogan "Dominator" and a different shaped heat sink).

Here are the specifications for my existing RAM and the RAM that I would like to add -

RAM that I already have in my computer

RAM that I want to add inot my computer

I notice that both the RAM that I already have and the RAM that I want have the same timing values (5-5-5-15) and Voltage (2.1V).

Can anybody shed any light on whether these different makes of Corsair RAM will work together?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo
