Thinkpad Edge 14" memory upgrade

Hello all!

 

I have a question for the more advanced users or, why not, for someone from Lenovo. I am the proud and fresh owner of a Thinkpad Edge 14" model NVS3GRI (machine type 0199-3GG). For full specs, see [1]. Currently, it has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, rated 1066 MHz. I am planning a memory upgrade which, hopefully, will give my rig new wings. Here's what I have in mind: http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KHX1333C7S3K2_4G.pdf 

 

The question is: will my Lenovo Edge successfully use this memory? That is, could the 1333MHz frequency of the memory(increased, compared to the standard 1066MHz) damage the notebook? Or will it run just fine?

 

Thank you!

Anyone? Smiley Sad Please, if someone knows an answer, post it here Smiley Happy). I don't want to try a new memory and risk bricking my Edge Smiley Tongue.

No risk (99% sure). The memory should work downclocked if your model accepts 204pin modules.

Re: Thinkpad Edge 14" memory upgrade

Maybe, if my CPU was an Intel... But this model of Thinkpad Edge has a AMD Athlon II P320 Dual-Core. Here [1] it states that "The fastest supported memory is DDR3-1066". I wasn't able to find if 1333 MHz DDR3 memory will work as 1066 MHz with lower timings or if it won't work at all...
