Maximum Memory And Type

What is the maximum RAM you can use on a Core 2 Duo T6400 processor and which type? I am currently running 4GB DDR2 and I feel it's a bit slow for light video editing.

This 2009 processor did not include a memory controller.

You will need to check with the motherboard/device manufacturer to see what they allowed.

I believe 4GB is the limit.  In my opinion, you should replace the entire device.

Just hoped I could get around it by upgrading RAM but it seems am stuck with it until I get another one. Thank you.
