I have recently purchased a acer aspire v3-551g-8454 for gaming. It already has a 4gb stick of ram that is SO-DIMM DDR3 PC3-12800 CL-11 1.5v and I purchased a stick of Corsair 4gb SO-DIMM DDR3 PC3-12800 CL-9 1.5v. Are these going to be compatible and work together or not?
well u said the old chip you are looking to replace was 1.5v, so i would stay with 1.5v. if you are able to, depending on the bios, you can manually set to ram timings in the bios. if you can't, it shouldn't cause you any problems.
Sorry for communication problems, I meant that I have a stick of 4gb ram that came with the laptop, but it has another slot and can hold up to 8gb of ram so I am adding another to the already existing 4gb.
Thats the specs on the ram I just purchased to add to the laptop. I used crucial.com to find some compatable rams to buy, and it showed the SO-DIMM DDR3-12800 CL-11 1.5v and the same with 1.35v for compatable ram so I wasn't sure if both voltages worked, or if I had to use 2 of the same or if mixing okay.
