  1. no it's not compatible , the Corsair Vengeance is DDR3 @ 1600 MHz , you motherboard's ram socket : 4 * 240-pin DDR3 DIMM slots – Dual Channel DDR3 1333/1066 MHz non-ECC, un-buffered memory (Max 8GB)
    which means the DDR3 @ 1333 MHz is the maximum frequency for your motherboard .

    i would suggest this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231311

    this will work perfectly with your motherboard .

    this one too : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148543
  2. Single 4GB module is not compatible.

    Your system supports a max memory of 8GB. It has 4 slots and max per slot is 2GB. http://www.memorystock.com/memory/DellInspiron560.html .

    Also, do not go with higher speed like 1600MHz the chances of the memory working is very low and especially with advanced RAM. Try ValueRAM.

    Hope that helps.
  3. in this case you should get this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231274

    order get 4x2 GB ( 4 sticks of ram -2 GB each )

    Sorry KareemGT, but per the specs of the motherboard (Dell Inspiron 560), that motherboard will only support 1GB or 2GB memory modules. If the OP wants to max out his/her memory, you need to go with 4x2GB DDR3-1333/1066/800 RAM.

    Something like this G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (4x2GB) DDR3-1333 or 2x G.Skill NS 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1333

    ya buddy , i saw it , and i reposted another links for 2x2 GB @ 1333 RAM , he can get 2 packs of 2x2gb or he can just go for your link (4x2GB) .
  6. You guys too fast.
    Inspiron 570 officially supports 8GB RAM as well, however it was proven that 16 GB is supported, I am strongly suspecting that Inspiron 560 behaves the same - supporting up to 16 GB with 4GB sticks! 1600 will be downclocked to 1333.

    Just another 2 cents.
