Max possible memory freq?

2013-06-17, 19:34 PM

Hi I bought my (Lenovo Ideapad B590 (20208) i5 3210M 4GB 1TB USB 3.0 Fingerprint) 2 weeks ago.

With speccy I saw that I have inside a 800MHz 4GB DDR3 memory, I am wondering, why? 800MHz is maximum it can handle? Because I want to buy one more 4GB, but every is above 1300MHz.

 

I want to know how much MHz can motherboard handle.

 

Also is any way to register product if i live in slovakia? Webpage is alerting that in slovakia is not available product registration.

 

I will be happy for full hardware specification. Motherboard informations for example socket type, maximum memory speed in MHz, ect.

ThankYou

hi erikkubica,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

 

What you're seing in speccy is the RAM's I/O Bus Clock which is 800Mhz. Since you're using DDR (Double Data Rate), this is equivalent to 1600Mhz. According to this pdf data sheet, the Lenovo B590 supports the following RAM:

 

8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3

 

For the product registration, you will need to have a proof of purchase and contact lenovo support to have your product registered and your warranty updated (in some countries, there's no need to register the product as they base the warranty work on the serial number or the proof of purchase).

 

 

Best regards,

neokenchi

Thank you, I am learned something new (meaning of DDR).
So if I am right I can buy for example Kingston SO-DIMM 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL11. It will be detected as 800MHz and it will work perfectly.

Also thanks for datasheet, I missed it on support.lenovo.com.

Thank you again.

hi erikkubica,

 

Yes, the Kingston SO-DIMM 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL11 should work without problems. If you're planning to do dual-channel, it's recommended that you use two identical RAM sticks but different brands should also work (as long as they have the same DRAM Frequency, CAS latency, etc.).

 

 

Hope this helps
