Any help is appreciated. More about : ram compatibility query abekl a b } Memory July 7, 2012 12:24:18 PM It's a 50/50 chance that it will work. The latencies on the new ram don't quite match any of the profiles of your old ram, leading me to think you will have to get rid of your old ram altogether. sanjoyb July 7, 2012 12:39:10 PM abekl said:It's a 50/50 chance that it will work.
