Memory type issue(9 posts)
"Today's DDR3-1333 has a peak bandwidth of 10666 MHz, which can be improperly rounded down and called PC3-10600, rounded up to be called PC3-10700 or stated without rounding as PC3-10666 depending on the manufacturer's desires.
Buyers will find that searching some venders for multiple DDR3-1333 brands will require them to check all three "ratings" to view modules of the same actual speed, but most brands label their DDR3-1333 products as either PC3-10600 or PC3-10666."
Yes i have seen this before from toms hardware but what does it mean. problem is its on my fathers machine and he lives 30 miles away. he ran the crucial diagnostic also and that didnt really tell him. someone else said the 10600 will work as long as the current memory is removed. Is this right? thanks
