Hi Everyone,

I currently have 2 x 2 Gig sticks of CM2X2048-8500C5 (DDR2 1066MHz) memory installed in my computer. I am aware that this RAM is no longer manufactured however I would like to upgrade my computer to 8 Gigs of RAM without going to the trouble of upgrading my motherboard / processor & RAM.

I have searched online and found some CM2X2048-8500C5D RAM (the only difference that I can see with this RAM when compared to my existing RAM is the marketing slogan "Dominator" and a different shaped heat sink).

Here are the specifications for my existing RAM and the RAM that I would like to add -

RAM that I already have in my computer

RAM that I want to add inot my computer

I notice that both the RAM that I already have and the RAM that I want have the same timing values (5-5-5-15) and Voltage (2.1V).

Can anybody shed any light on whether these different makes of Corsair RAM will work together?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

When you add more RAM if both of them have the same tech spec. , then they are perfect match.
