T500 RAM Upgrade and Frequency issue

Hi,

I want to upgrade RAM on my lenovo T500 which currently has 2 modules of pc-8055 1066 MHz ddr3. I am wondering if i can replace those with 1333MHz modules. I am skeptic about doing it, so can someone advise on it.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

 

 DDR3-1333 is backward compatible, it would work but will run at 1066 Mhz speed.


Hope this helps.
