Crucial is down right now for maintenance, but overall dual rank is better performing than single.

Re: Inspiron 5570 Ram Question

Thanks for the reply.I was thinking probably dual ram was the better option,but was unsure because read somewhere that it's better to have the two sticks the same rank,but can't seem to find anything in the manuals that tells me what  rank the current ram is.

Anyway might take a chance on dual ram.Amazing that there's not a lot of info out there on this

So if I got the same stick for my 5570, it should work flawlessly?

Yes,works flawlessly,but seen as it is recommended to get matching ram,If I were you I would get the single rank ram because at least for me,that is what is in there already.

I don't think it matters that much though.
