Has anyone got an HP Mini Netbook 110-3627TU and upgraded the standard 1Gb with a 2Gb SODIMM?

These HPs are very fussy with their RAM and the module I have been recommended as being confirm compatible is the Kingston RAM with part number KTH-X36S/2G

http://www.elive.co.nz/kingston-2gb-ddr2-667mhz-memory-t17891

However a friend had concerns that this is quite a slow DDR3 (apparently it is DDR3 even though listed on elive as DDR2) RAM at 667MHz.

Kingston also has another module which is "Lenovo specific" with a part number KTL-TP3BS/2G

This has a clock speed of 1333MHz DDR3.

On Australian whirlpool forums multiple users have successfully used KTH-X36S/2G with their HP Mini 110-3538TU netbooks. However I have nothing confirmed for 110-3627TU. I know that these are the same series (3500 series) but does anyone know for sure that this module will also work?

Maybe someone has the 110-3627TU and installed this very module KTH-X36S/2G?

Thanks!

yep they are a bit fussy with Ram. PBTech have one listed as working specifically with your laptop

Hi Paul,

That PB one is the same as the "slower" one that I listed above.

I presume that since both are labelled as "DDR3" that the one with 1333MHz clock speed will run faster than the 667MHz one on this N570 Atom netbook?

Or is there some sort of limitation which means that the 1333MHz would not have any speed advantage?

What I want to know is whether the 1333MHz would make a difference, and if so whether the KTL-TP3BS/2G works specifically with the 110-3627TU (multiple reports say it works with the 110-3538TU which is from the same series).

probably wont be significant difference, bigger problem is what will run in the slot. You will notice speed increase due to more Ram anyway, so small increase in clock speed wont make a big difference. It didn't on my Samsung. Also just noticed PB are all out, so go for what the other posters recommended to work.

I'm just hoping someone has tried this particular combination with the "faster" RAM and the 110-3627TU and can report on results.

Sorry mate, misread your first post.That will teach me for posting late at night.

If you cant find a working 1333mhz chip, I wouldnt worry, the difference in speed will be miniscule at best as most 1333mhz chips use cl9 timing and most 1033mhz chips use cl7. So what you lose in mhz, you make up for in timing at this level of machine. My windows score has gone down slightly by using 1333mhz ram in my Samsung, so I am going to try 2gb of 1033mhz and tighter timings to match the Samsung Ram that came out.

For the HP Mini 110-3627TU 

These 2GB parts do work 

Kingston KTH-X36S/2G 

and 

Crucial CT25664BC1339

The 2GB Ram make the netbook a lot faster than with the 1GB Ram.

Cheers

Who sells the Crucial in NZ? I couldn't find any vendors yesterday but may have been a search fail.

Still interested to know if anyone has tried the KTL-TP3BS/2G?

Did you ever try that one Gordy7?

It seems that not all DDR3 1333 Sodimms are the same.


I am no expert but have noticed that the Ram on these Sodimms seems to have different chip arrays on the various modules.

I note that the Sodimms for the 110-3627TU seems to need the "single stack" array. This appears to be denoted by the 'S' burried in the part number.

Regarding speed 1333 versus 667. Again this may depend on the memory controller and the CPU bus speed. I would guess the 1333 somehow refers to the clocked byte bandwidth even though the memory controller is running at 667MHz.

Regardless of all this techo guessing, 2GB Ram handles all the Windows files a lot better and much faster than using 1GB Ram.

Cheers

The Crucial CT25664BC1339 is shown at Ascent.

Last time I looked it was out of stock.

I can't remember if it shows on their general listing or you have to search Ascent for the part. 

I saw this part working at Bond and Bond... But the price was very high.

Cheers

I know the KTL-TP3BS/2G works on the 110-3538TU according to many reports from Whirlpool forums. However I don't know if this translates to the 110-3637TU which has a model number suggesting it should be part of a "3600 series" but the BIOS (with most recent update) says 3500 series? ie. Same as the 110-3538TU.

Hi bro, i just bought the same kingston memory which is showing in your pic from pb, n installed it on my 3627tu, it works perfectly, in my opinion, normally, 8 chips memory is more stable than the 4 chips one.
