Corsair DDR2 5300 vs 5400

Recommended Posts

Continuing the question, I have a HP Compaq C710TU (which isn't in the Corsair web site database - can it be added?) HP are very vague with memory specs (guess they want you to buy their own overpriced HP brand), but it's been posted by another user of this laptop that it works with this: "Hynix 512MB DDR2 PC2-5300 667Mhz Notebook SO-DIMM (RAM)"

 

I'd rather use a Corsair brand, but my local hardware shop doesn't sell a 5300 version of Corsair; only 4200 and 5400.

 

Notebook Corsair 1GB PC-4200 (533MHz) 200-pin SO-DIMM DDR2 RAM

Notebook Corsair 1GB PC-5400 (667MHz) 200-pin SO-DIMM DDR2 RAM

 

Questions:

1. Is PC2-5300 another way of saying PC-5300 DDR2, or are these something completely different?

1. Given what you've said about 5300 vs 5400 in the earlier thread ( http://www.asktheramguy.com/v3/showthread.php?t=64573&highlight=5300+5400 ) , can I use the 5400 memory instead?

A: I have already answered you, the reseller is just listing it incorrectly. if its VS512SDS667D2 it PC-5300 memory. And I do not have any information on that system, will it see 1.0 Gig modules do they list them on the NB makers site?

Not sure if you're confusing me with someone else?

 

, the reseller is just listing it incorrectly. if its VS512SDS667D2 it PC-5300 memory.

 

So if I understand you correctly if it was true 5400 memory it would have a clock frequency of 675 instead of 667 and have a part number like VS512SDS675D2 instead instead of VS512SDS667D2? If so, mislabeling is common. Here's a review of Corsair ram which claims the VS512SDS667D2 is PC-5400 memory:

But you seemed to be saying yes, you can use PC2-5300 and PC2-5400 memory interchangeably?

 

And I do not have any information on that system, will it see 1.0 Gig modules do they list them on the NB makers site?

Here's the XXXXXXXXX link for that PC's memory:

Yes, it does max 2 x 1Gb modules.
