Compatibility Tags: Memory Intel Compatibility Last response: April 6, 2010 1:38 AM in Memory Share Maksym April 5, 2010 11:10:55 PM Hello, I have the following board: "Intel BOXDP55WB LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard" http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... I found this memory selling for $20 a piece from a buy who is upgrading: "Kingston KTL-TCM58/2G 2GB 1X2GB DDR3-1066 240PIN DIMM Memory Module" http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=40102&vpn=KT... My question is is it compatible? Voltage seems fine, DDR3, DIMM, but it says that it is compatible with Lenovo(does it mean with Lenovo systems only?) I'm sorry if it sounds stupid, I really do not know.

The RAM is compatible, the Lenovo compatibility means that in that specific system can works without problems. But can work in your mobo. But is better buy 2x2GB that 2x1GB, because you can add more RAM in the future without remove you 2x1GB. | Report abuse Maksym April 6, 2010 12:25:23 AM Thank you for your reply, yes, this memory is 1x2Gb, so only one slot.
