Have a question:... a "test" you might say to see how smart you Apple guys are...
(I would assume the below info would be a worthwhile addtion to the Sticky.... Having ram that will work arcoss platforms is the smart thing to do)
Can the RAM from an Apple MacBook Pro 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo (15.4-inch) be used in a HP nx6325 (RB526UT#ABA) ?
HP nx6325 (RB526UT#ABA)
(DDR2 667 MHz) SODIMM
I'm assuming the Apple ram is 200pin, standard
DDR2- 667 spec notebook size ram.... 1.8v
Concerned as in the first post of this thread there's a mention of ram being optimized? for Apple products?
As long as the timings are the same, the voltages the same as a Windows type machine it should work, and may I say it would be pretty stupid for Apple to use non-standard ram... So I doubt that the ram from the Apple wouldn't work... in the above HP.
Here's the ram I'm talking about... Most all vendors showing what appear to be desktop ram, but saying it's 200 pin, 667 spec...
ACP-EP 2GB DDR2 SDRAM Memory Module
Mfr # MA091LL/A-2GBhttp://www.ritzcamera.com/product/EP4515545.htm
CPU-Z shows the current installed ram in the HP to be:
Under MEMORY TAB
DDR-SDRAM (Channels #DUAL)
Size 512 (1 module)
CAS#Latency (greyed out)
RAS# to CAS# Delay=4 clocks
RAS#Precharge= 5 clocks
Cycle time (Tras)= 10 clocks
Bank Cycle time (Trc)= 9 clocks
DRAM idle timer= 4 clocks
Under the SPD tab
Slot #1 DDR2-SDRAM
Module size 512mb
Max Bandwidth =PC5300 (333mhz)
Mfg = 7F7F7F7F7F510000
64T64020HDL3SBSPD timings table:
CAS# = 5.0
Ras to CAS= 5
RAS# Precharge= 5
Any input would be apperciated. I've heard over the years that Apple owners are a pretty smart bunch...
The above looks like standard DDR2 notebook ram to me, but I need a confirmation that "APPLE" ram isn't some weird bastard stuff before ordering..
