I recently purchased a Dell Vostro 460 and been searching for RAM to add to the system. It has i5-2400 with 4 slots for RAM. I am running Win7 Ultimate 64bit. I wanted to know what the motherboard limitations are on Ram. Not the quantity but the speed, voltage and CAS. I don't want to be buying more then the system or MB can handle, just a waste. Also will 1.65v or 1.5v be recommended ?
I ened up ordering the 2 of the following sets for 16gb
Kingston HyperX Grey Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX
I was able to get the Memory for $35 after rebate and its recommended by Tom hardware.
The memory may be over kill for my computer but I will try Memset to get the most out the RAM
Anyone know what specs I should set the RAM at?
Also what are the ramifications with adjusting just the RAM settings?
The price different wasn't' to great and I think I got a really good deal on this memory
Dell bios won't let you change anything
I've been researching and found a program Memset that will let you set the RAM's specs in windows
Not sure how well that works
