I am looking to upgrade the ram in my newly purchased Dell desktop. I haven't received it in the mail yet and would like to get a jump start on adding some more ram to the system. I know that it uses SDRAM DDR3, but how many pins and also I know that you are supposed to get the same speed of ram. I couldn't find the specs of the ram that comes with the system other than that it is SDRAM DDR3. Please advise. I am posting a link to Amazon if that helps. http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-i660s-2002BK-Desktop-Black/dp/B00ALSNEJK/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1363745108&sr=1-5&keywords=dell+660
Inspiron 660s has 2 memory slots which support DDR3 1333 MHz and 1666 MHz memory modules. It supports a maximum of 8 GB memory.
If you would like to purchase upgrades from dell you may refer to the link : http://dell.to/XXZK4P
For instructions on adding/removing parts from the system you may refer to the Owner's Manual : http://bit.ly/ZAJrdN
Note : Please refer to the safety instructions in the manual.
Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions.
Odd, from the spec sheet on Dell's website: ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_inspiron_desktop/inspiron-660s_Reference%20Guide_en-us.pdf
It says DDR3 up to 1600 MHz not 1666 MHz . The rest is correct, two slots up to 8GB
From the Dell's website: http://accessories.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=A5764362&mfgpid=225978
It is 240pin. I hope that correctly answers some of the questions
