Intel® HM55 Express Chipset with Kingston RAM 8GB 1600 MHz

Jump to solution

HI, i have Intel® HM55 Express Chipset on my ASUS notebook, and i want to install new ram: Kingston SODIMM DDR3 8GB 1600MHz CL9 HyperX Plug n Play (Kit 2x4GB) , but i don`t know if this chipset support 1600 MHz frequency. Please help me. Thanks.

The problem is not exactly the speed 1600Mhz memories ... also operate at 1333Mhz or 1066Mhz if the chipset can not run overclocked.

The problem is that the HM55 chipset does not recognize modules assembled with inserts RAM 512Mx8bits ... having your limit 256Mx8bits.

So make sure that the memory module that will buy your mount has taken 16 tablets 256Mx8bits, otherwise will not work.

I spent a little time so I bought Kingston memories of new models (2x4GB), mounted with 8 tablets 512Mx8bits (4096MB or 4GB) and I had to exchange for Patriot modules with 16 tablets 256Mx8bits.

For the same reason the notebooks that use the HM55 chipset has a maximum of 8GB memory = 2x ((256Mx8bits) x 16) = 2x 4Gb.

It not only about the chipset but those units usually support speeds of 1333Mhz natively. the RAMS you mentioned have the XMP which you can enable through your BIOS. Unless, you are low on RAMS or your RAMS are really slow you will not realize that much of a difference.

hi, thanks for your reply,

I have 4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz. Do you think 8 GB kit 1333 MHz RAMs should help me to get better performance?

For sure,

You can go for the 1333Mhz or the 1600Mhz "not much of a difference in performance between the two if you are not an overclocker"

As for going from 4GB to 8GB you will see dramatic performance boost. Especially if you disable the page file in your PC.

Once you have 8GB of ram you will not need the page file. Hence, no temp data is saved on the local storage device i.e. SSD. Which means faster response times however you look at it.

  1. Make sure that you have a 64 bit windows "preferably Win 7"
  2. incase your PC is cluttered & not well maintained go for a fresh install

When you get the new rams PM me & we'll take it one step at a time

Strongly advise you to go for it

Hi!

I have the same chipset as Simon here(i think), and have problems with the installation of my new RAM kit.

The kit i bougth, is a Corsair Value DDR3 SO-DIMM 1333 Mhz 8GB. kit w/2x 4GB, unbuffered, 204pin (PC10600)

After installing the kit, BIOS will identify 8 GB RAM. The problem is that Windows will not boot.

The laptop i got is a Asus U41 JF 14" HD, 64bit with Windows 7. Chipset: Mobile Intel HM55 Express. CPU: Intel Core i5 480M / 2.66 GHz

The memory already installed, is also DDR3 SO-DIMM 204pins 1333 Mhz

 

Do you know what the problem might be?

 

Greatful for answer

cheers
