AM2 Only Memory Tags: Memory RAM Intel Product Last response: April 11, 2009 2:55 AM in Memory Share eraser851 April 10, 2009 10:45:15 PM I'm buying more RAM for my system at work and I found a good deal on some, however they claim the RAM is for AM2 Chipsets only. I have an Intel CPU. What exactly makes it AM2 only? Why wouldn't it work with an Intel chip? More about : am2 memory affroman112 April 10, 2009 11:04:48 PM I've never heard of AM2 specific memory. As long as the RAM is the right speed and type it should work in most motherboards. What kind of processor do you have? eraser851 April 10, 2009 11:24:09 PM It's an Intel Celeron D 336. This is the RAM I want to put in it: http://cgi.ebay.com/MAJOR-4GB-DDR2-PC2-4300-533MHZ-2GB-...|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50 However, it says it'll only work on AM2 and AM2+ mobo's. And I don't see the difference.

The only thing i can see is that the RAM is labeled as PC2 4300 and the RAM I've seen is labeled PC2 4200. marco324 April 11, 2009 2:55:23 AM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $41.99 Free Shipping Can't find your answer ?
