Dell Optiplex 990

I have heard of using DDR3 8GB ram modules in this PC.

Which modules would be compatible with which i7 cpu?

Hello pctechman,

 

Thank you for your message.

 

There are a few different versions of that system.  You can see the different versions in the image below.

The model type does change the recommendation.  Can you please confirm what version you have?  I would then be happy to check and see exactly what memory is guaranteed to be compatible.  If you have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.

@pctechman Thanks for your reply. A link to available upgrades can be found here:

Your system has a max of 16GB, but it needs to be installed as four single 4GB modules, not two 8GB modules. Please let us know if you have any questions about any of these upgrades.
