I am having Lenovo Z460 which has a Samsung 2GB PC3-8500 DDR3 1066MHz RAM in one of the slots. I am going for an upgradation. But the thing is, find it very hard to get a 8500 - 1066MHz RAM. So will it be ok if go for the next higher configuration RAM..say.. 10600 - 1333MHz
I've referred the user's manual & it says...
Bus architecture • Hyper Transport Link 16 x 16
• A link Express2
• DDRIII 800~1333MHz
• PCI-Express x 16
DDR III 800/1066MHz DIMM socket x 2 (max 4GB per slot)
Does this mean..do i have to stick with 1066MHz RAM ?
Grateful to any sort of help.

Welcome to Lenovo Community!
I’m sorry to inform you that the specifications of the new RAM should be same as the pre-installed RAM of the computer to work as expected.
Do post us back for further queries.
