DDR3-1333 is not necessary, the X120e only runs the ram at DDR3-1066 speeds. I dont know why they ship them with 1333, the chipset isnt capable of using it, it just downclocks to 1066.

 

I'm using 2x4GB DDR3-1066.

 

Edit: added specs/links.

Hello,

 

I used an 8GB G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ (DDR3-1333 PC3-10666 4096MB×2 CL9-9-9-24 SO-DIMM) kit, but keep in mind that only 4GB is an officially supported Lenovo configuration.

 

Regards,
