Does not Work in all Dell Inspiron N5010 Models

Pros: Name brand quality product. I'm sure it works great in a compatible computer.

Cons: Not compatible with all sub-models of the Dell Inspiron N5010.

Other Thoughts: Corsair Memory Finder website (http://www.corsair.com/en-us/memory-finder) lists this RAM for the Dell Inspiron N5010 'Guaranteed Compatible'. However, it is not compatible with all sub-models of the Dell Inspiron N5010 as explained by Corsair Technical Support Representative. The Dell Inspiron N5010 model comes with an i3, i5, or i7 CPU with different motherboards and different RAM requirements. Suggest contacting Corsair Technical Support (1-888-222-4346) to confirm compatibility with sub-models installed CPU prior to ordering.

I've found mein Error.

Pros: Corsair is good product. Handles exceedingly well.

Cons: Did not work for my Lenovo R500. I found my error in reason to why. The Intel GM45/47 Chipset can not and will not handle the speed that these specific RAM sticks supply. GM47/47 Rev 7 can only handle speeds up to 1333MHz Dual or 667MHz Single Channel. These sticks cannot adjust to 1333 MHz, I realized after buying.

Other Thoughts: ADVICE:: Do your research on your chipset and make sure it can handle such speeds as I failed to do beforehand. I have no other laptop to test these, so I'm stuck with incompatibility.

Believed RAM arrived shot/non-func.

Pros: I grew up with Corsair products and has yet to fail me. Until now.

Cons: Seemed promising. Still with failure try with only one Stick and my laptop can run 4GB as it still currently does because these RAM sticks failed out of the box.

Other Thoughts: I have a Lenovo R500 2718. and can support 8GB RAM, despite the datasheet. I have friends with same laptop and are running with 8GB. Though the datasheet says 4GB Max, I should expect boot and performance. with both or either or, I receive 1-3-3-1 beep code defining bad or no memory. I am completely dissatisfied.

Didn't Work - Dell Inspiron N5010

Pros: I'm sure it's good RAM, it's Corsair. I swear by them for a lot of stuff, half of the hardware in my current desktop build is Corsair product.

Cons: Didn't work in my Dell Inspiron N5010.

Other Thoughts: I used Corsair's "Memory Finder" tool on their site. It tells me this kit is compatible with a Dell Inspiron N5010. Found the RAM kit at Newegg and it was around $20 or so cheaper (give or take a few bucks), so I ordered through Newegg instead of Corsair directly.

- BIOS in laptop is most current version available - A15.
- BIOS recognized/acknowledged all 8192 GB, though running at 1066 MHz due to limitations of the system, which I had partially anticipated.
- BSOD during boot into Windows 10, KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
- Shuts itself down with no warning during boot attempt from a Windows 8 setup DVD.
- Shuts itself down with no warning during boot attempt from Parted Magic DVD.

I reinstalled the original 2x2 GB modules (Micron MT8JSF25664HZ-1G4D1), and the laptop booted to Windows 10 and worked fine. Same goes for the Windows 8 setup DVD and Parted Magic DVD, everything worked perfectly.

But Corsair's "Memory Finder" filter on their site claims compatibility. Hmmm...

$37.99 purchase price for product.
$5.70 restock fee from Newegg applied.
$23.37 refund due after restock fee.
$10.40 to ship back to Newegg standard UPS.
$12.97 back in my pocket and egg on my face after all is said and done. Shame on me.

EXTREMELY disappointed with this whole experience.

I just ordered some RAM from Crucial directly - from what I understand, they guarantee upgrade compatibility, perhaps I'll have a better experience with them. Sorry Corsair, maybe next time...

Made a big difference in a 2011 HP DV6

Comments: The old RAM was 2x2gb Samsung PC3-8500. The Intel chipset I have supports up to 1333mhz and these chips downclocked just fine and the extra speed was noticeable along with doubling my physical RAM. Laptop is used for streaming music and videos, along with Internet and bookkeeping use.
