I recently received some free RAM for my MBP and I do not know if it will work. I have an old 2009 MBP and the free RAM came from a newer model. Everything is the same but the MHz.


The specs for the new RAM:


- Double Data Rate Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (DDR3) format

- 67.6mm x 30mm (1.18 inch)

- 4 GB (2 sticks)

- 204-pin

- PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 MHz type RAM


The specs for my Macbook Pro:

-Processor 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

-Memory 2 GB 1067 MHz DDR3


I know my computer can run up to 8 GB, but what will the two faster sticks of RAM running at 1600 MHz do?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6)
