The specs of your machine is




As you can see, it has 2666MHz RAM installed but machine will automatically downgrade to 2400MHz. CPU-Z should show you what is the brand and model of existing RAM. To be able to run dual channels you must use same existing RAM. Other 2666MHz RAM may work but won't work as a good dual channel architecture.


Now, get information from CPU-Z and go out to buy SANE RAM.
