8 GiB RAM for GM965-based laptops? [U9200, M9400, D9500]

Hey there.

I was initially under the impression the GM965 chipset is hardware-limited to 4GiB of RAM, but that is apparently not the case. I can't find the specsheet saying the 965 chipsets support 8GiBs of RAM but rumors around the web saying this chipset "unofficially" supports 8GiB are aplenty. Has anyone tried? :) Any volunteers? :twisted:

I successfully bought und installed 2 * 4GB ram and got them working with the full 8GB amount on my U9200 with Win7 64. They were the cheapest around (89€ for the Kit) and advertised as DDR2-800 (PC2-6400) SO-DIMM 256Mx8x16 double side - so I assume no special chips or anything like that required.

Thanks a bunch! :) Which CPU are you using, Penryn or Merom?

Updated my product info, upgraded to the same processor as yours so Penryn. IIRC I followed your disassembling descriptions while doing it, so thanks for that. ;)

Another successful upgrade! :) Took over an hour to memtest (phew).
