I have a Samsung Series 5 530U3C-A01 model. My system says I currently have 4GB RAM. I want to add more to make it faster, but can't figure out:
- What's the max RAM it can run, and max speed
- How many slots does it have - Only 1, or perhaps 2 (And then I can buy an additional cheaper 4GB rather than a replacement 8GB)
I found these links, not sure they absolutely apply to my specific model (As I have a different country code in the end):
- 4 GB on board RAM and 2 GB (DDR3) in slot.
What does on board mean?
It also said max is 12GB and speed is 1600 MHz.
I ran the scan, these are the results. still can't figure everything out:
It doesn't say anything about speed. It says Max memory is 12GB? And shows graphic of one slot. does it mean I only have one slot and it is already occupied with 4GB?
I also contacted the manufacturer and was told:
Original memory : 4GB (on-board memory, irremovable )
Available number of RAM slot space: 1
Maximum Capacity of RAM slot: 8GB
RAM type: DDR3 (1333MHz/1600MHz)
So, what is the bottom line, how much RAM should I buy, and in what speed? should I buy "low-voltage"?
