T400 - 8GB RAM - 2x4 GB available anywhere?

2008-10-29, 22:41 PM

Hello,

 

I just bought a new T400 and was wondering if it's possible to put 8 GB RAM in it. As I could read in the forums it is theoretically. The problem is: I don't find a single retailer here in Germany which is offering a single 4 GB bar, there are only "Kits" containing 2x2 GB in the market.

 

So, is there a 4 GB bar available somewhere in the world? :-)

 

Best regards from Nuremberg.

Guten Tag welcome to the forum:

 

 

On the net i have saw couple of manufacturers producing the 4 gig DDR 3 SO DIMM ram module, but i can't find any of them selling on the net when i tried to search for it. The price for one stick of these ram is around 400 to 500 Euro mark.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks for reply, I took a look for some SO DDR2 RAM, and even there are the prices in the range you wrote, about 400 - 500 EUR. I think I will order a second 2GB bar and wait some months ;-)!

Hi Waschbecken, I am interested to know why you want to put 8GB or RAM in your T400. Are you runing Vista 64?

 

If so then the T400 Chipset will support 8 GB, if not you will have to upgrade to Vista 64! There is a thread on this blog that goes through this issue at ...

We also posted an article on the ThinkPadToday.com blog re this issue.

Hope this helps!

Crucial.com is the only place I have found the $gb Sticks for T400,T500,W500,and W700 Thinkpads.  8GB kit is $1100.00 USD.

 

I have it, and Man, It rocks!

 

Hope this helps.

 

T400 (7417-TRU), Win vista Ultimate 64Bit, 8GB ram.
