RAM:  must be matching pairs.

  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Two 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets
  • Supports the following:
    • PC3 10600 (DDR3-1333)
    • PC3 12800 (DDR3-1600)
  • Supports 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB DIMMs
  • Supports up to 16 GB (unbuffered) on 64-bit computers

If your trying to add just a second 4GB, you need to match what is there, and  It could be:

655410-150    Memory - DIMM, 4GB, PC3-12800, CL11

 698650-154    Memory - 4GB, PC3-12800, CL11

 698650-D3N    Memory - DIMM, 4GB, PC3-12800, CL11


You could add a SATA 2.5" SSD drive, but the 256GB size would make it difficult.  In other to clone, you have to shrink down the 1TB drive to under 220GB. Otherwise a fresh install of 10 would have to be done.  That fresh install would only have generic drivers. Bad Idea.
