    Question Looking for Dell 8400 Memory Timings

    I want to add memory to a Dell 8400 and have looked high and low for its memory timing but cannot find it. Does anyone here know?

    I'm seeing some good pricing on non Crucial memory and would like to know if they are possible for this system. (DDR2, PC2-4200, 533 Mhz)

    Thanks!

    I would not get anything other than generic ram for a dell because it would make no difference due to the low quality of the machine in the first place(note the absence of temperature sensors). That goes for other motherboards that have no ram timing adjustments as well. Spd is suposed to set the ram automatically but seldom ever does.

    Definately do not get performance memory but any generic or OEM memory should be fine timing and voltage wise.

    Spd is suposed to set the ram automatically but seldom ever does.
    This is usually due to the fact that the memory is either newer than the BIOS/mainboard version or you have "out of spec" memory for the BIOS's/mainboards parameters (I always have on hand spec memory so that adjustments can be made in BIOS prior to other memory being inserted for those mainboards that can accommodate but Dell PC's won't).
