  1. Welcome to Tom's Forum! :)

    Yes it 'can' work and many will debate the 1.65v RAM and the Sandy Bridge CPU as not a good idea. Therefore, I would look instead at 1.50v RAM,and 1600 MHz CAS 8/9 is the Sandy Bridge sweet-spot. Also, DDR3 RAM is pretty inexpensive 'now' and you might want to look at a 2x4GB kit - it does require a 64-bit OS

    Alternative kits:
