It supports the DDR3 Ram at 1333mhz, so it will not run this at full potential but it will run. The comp supports 16 gig, so it should have 4 slots, chances are you can keep the memory you have and add this, just make sure the memory pairs are slot 1 & 3 and slot 2 & 4. You'll also need to be running a 64 bit OS or it will only see 3 gigs of ram.

Yes!! "Vengeance memory is backward compatible with notebooks which use first-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7processors. Even if your notebook doesn't use the latest-generation processor, you can still upgrade to 8GB using only two memory slots, and enjoy the confidence of Corsair's renowned service and support." From their Website. Must have a 64bit system and may work fine at 1333hz.

You need to check two things:

1) Check the maximum RAM that your laptop can take. Some systems, even though 64-bit, cannot take more than 4GB RAM.
2) Check the specs of the RAM currently installed. If you have DDR3 RAM, this *should* work.

Hope I helped!

it should... but it would most likely run at the highest speed that your cpu or motherboard supports. it is possible that it would run faster for example my computer only supports 1366 ram but it runs a 1600 speeds vs its advertised speed of 1866. the advantages of buying faster ram is that it runs with lower latencys and offers stable over clocks i would suggest going with 1600 ram as should be cheaper and still have lower latencys

Hi!
I using this set with second generation - i5-2450M 2.5GHz CPU.Runs OK.
Also My friend bought set of 16Gb (8x2) of same Corsair memory. He has first generation i5-740 CPU (Sony VAIO, made in 2010). After installed to his PC BIOS shows 16gigs but OS fails to start. CPU-Z shows that his HM55 Chipset doesn't support higher speed memory such as this DDR3-800Mhz. It supporting lower speed DDR3 memory. So, I think you system will not work with this model memory... Anyway you have to check. Maybe you have another chipset. Or check BIOS updates on manufacturer site.
