Dell Dimension 9200 Updated to 8GB.

3 months ago I installed 8GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 in my Dimension 9200 with no issues.

Updating the RAM and moving to an SSD it's made my old Dell fly now.  :emotion-1:

Hi Brds7t7,

Excellent! Glad to hear you're keeping the 9200 running.

What OS are you running Windows 7 64 Bit?

I have added a note to this thread here to inform other users that they can upgrade to 8 GB of RAM:

Hi Natacuk,

Yes, running Windows 7 Pro x64.

I was a little cautious when first buying the Ram, as you know, DDR2 is getting expensive now. I was a little worried in case it wouldn't work. But worked fine, so I'm assuming it only says 4GB in the Dell manual just because it's outdated documentation?

Really needed 8GB as I run a few VM's on my system too.

Even though the System was built in 2006, it's still running really well. The only thing I've had to replace was the DVD drive a few years ago.

One thing I have noticed is that in the BIOS it's reporting my Memory speed to be 533mhz, yet all of the sticks I bought were PC2-6400 800mhz.

Are the speeds capped to 533mhz on this type of board/BIOS?

FSB is Usually based on the CPU Clock and Multiplier.  Dells do not allow overclocking albeit this could be pin modded on some cpus.

I am also interested in upgrading a Dell Dimension 9200 running WIN7 64 bit to a total of 8GB RAM in 2GB sticks.

I have been looking at the Crucial Part No.CT25664AA667 as being a possibility. I note though that the same part number is sometimes listed with a suffix of either ".16FHZ" or "M16FG".

I don't understand what these suffix mean or if they are relevant?

If the above part number is not what I should go for could someone kindly please let me know one that they have used successfully.

Thank you

Thank you for this information. Out of interest though what do the two different suffixes mean for the CT25664aa667?
