Thread: older macbook ram question
08-01-2008, 06:25 PM #1older macbook ram question
I have a macbook from mid 2007 Its a core 2 duo 2.0Ghz. I currently have 2 512mb sticks of ram in there. I want to max it out. Apple says the max is 2gb, but i hear things about 3.3gb. it is bad to put 2x 2gb in there? or do you need a new one to handle those? Don't want it to overheat or anything.
If someone could clear this up it would be great. And do i need a certian type of ram or just any 667Mhz PC2 5300 will work?

You should be able to put 4gb in there, and it should read only 3GB and use only 3GB. More Ram then needed shouldn't be a problem as long as the ram is compatible with your macbook.
If I'm wrong, somebody will be along to correct me.
