memory expansion

jayhen93jayhen93 Member Posts: 2

I have an ACER aspire 5733.  It came with both memory slots filled, one DIMM0 with a Kingston DDR3 1024mb PC3-10700 (667 MHz) and the other, DIMM1 with a Kingston DDR3 4096 MBytes PC3-10700 (667 MHz). 

 

I'd like to replace the smaller one with another 4gb stick so that it performs a little better, and is more likely to cope with Windows 10, but I can't work out how to idenitfy the right one to buy.

 

Which specification is most important to match. Is the Mhz important ?  Some UK sites don't quote a mhz number on what seem to be the right sticks.  how do I work out what pin I need?

 

any help most welcome

    Hello,

     

    I suggest you to buy this compatible memory module (you'll need 2 units):

    Corsair CM3X4GSD1066

    All processors of this model support only DDR3 800 or 1066MHz. The original memory module 1333 or 1600MHz work at 1066MHz.

    Original processors:

    Spoiler
    KC.37K01.DMPCPU.I3.370M.2.4G/3M
    KC.38K01.DMPCPU.I3.380M.2.53G/3M/35W
    KC.48K01.DMPCPU.I5.480M.2.66G/3M/35W
    KC.56K01.DMPCPU.I5.560M.2.66G/3M/35W.PGA
