    MB PRO Ram upgrade
    Hi!

    I am planning to upgrade my MB Pro's RAM. I have a MA896LL/A (2007) 15" MacBook PRO.

    Should I go with 2x2gb or 4gb in one module in case I later consider adding 2gb more?

    And also - can I install PC6400 ? Or just PC5300

    Thanks a lot!!

    Rob

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    According to Mactracker:

    Maximum RAM 6.0 GB (Actual) 4.0 GB (Apple)
    Type of RAM Slots 2 - 200-pin PC2-5300 (667MHz) DDR2 SO-DIMM


    Since there is only one memory bank holding two modules you should populate the bank. In other words, always use two modules. Your choices are: 2 x 2GB or 1 x 2GB + 1 x 4GB which means you can either have a total of 4 GB or 6 GB.

    Your machine uses the PC2-5300 type. Do not use PC2-6400 as they likely will not work correctly.

    I eventually went with 4+1 for now... everything works fine so far..
    And by the way - my 4GB module is 6400..
