Default Laptop RAm upgrade question !

Hey guys, my friend is deployed in IRAQ right now,

and he wants to upgrade the RAM in his laptop

the model is a 258KAO

from www.ibuypower.com

I configured it for him about 2 years ago.

He has 1 Gig of Kingston ram and wants 2Gigs of ram

I sent him these links, Does that look good to you, i just wanna double check.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145562

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141208

one thing i noticed was the voltage is 2.5V and 2.6V on the corsair.

I could do this much easier if i had the laptop but since its halfway around the world......


anyway let me know what you guys find out.

peace

Pay attention to cas latency. Mix & Matching cas latency doesn't work, at least from my experience. The PQI shows 2.5 for cl, but Corsair lists nothing that I could see. What is the Kingston that is already in the laptop?

UPDATE:

I talked to him and we are going to scrap the 1gig Kingston and go with 2X 1gig sticks of corsair.

I got some more time to check into it today, and all seems in order..

So i am going to give him the go ahead to order.

i couldnt tell ya the CAS is, but it really dont matter anymore.

I would put my money that the coarsair is 2.5,

But it dosent matter because like i said we are scraping the kingston,

thanks anyway.

Wanna buy 1Gig of Kingston?
