I am new to this community. I just purchased thinkpad t430s, but i'd like to purchase aftermarket 8GB*2 memory ram because the ones lenovo offers are ridiculously expensive. Could you guys please give me some suggestions on which memory ram i should get? Is it true that any DDR3 ram will just do fine? I hate having the timing and other stuffs mismatch and having blue screens...
Thank you for your help!
some specs about my laptop in case you guys need to know:
Intel Core i7-3520M Processor
320gb hard drive,(plan to change to samsung 840 pro 256gb)
4GB DDR3 ram
Yes, any DDR3 SODIMM RAM should work but the speed maybe limited. The ideal memory speed would be DDR3-1333MHz. For 16GB upgrade you could go with two 8GB modules.
Note: Make sure your laptop has a 64Bit OS (windows) in order to utilize more than 4GB of memory. Click here for compatible memory for your laptop.
