    Is this the right 2GB memory for my  Areca ARC-1880ix

    rowby Level 1



      My  Areca ARC-1880ix came with 1GB of onboard memory.   I am able to upgrade it to 4GB of memory.  But I am only upgrading it to 2GB of memory, swapping out the 1GB stick for the 2GB memory.


      I want to double check to make sure the new memory is "compatible".  One of the reasons I'm checking is, while it appears that the stick will indeed fit in the board, the stick is not as "tall" as the original memory stick.


      I assume I am being overly careful. I guess I could just stick the memory into the card and see if it blows up.  But I figure I'd run the sticks through the experts here.


      See the attached photo of the two sticks, side by side. BTW the slots align up.....


      The memory stick that came with the card has these specs:

      UG 12T7200M8DR-8CR

      1GB DDR2  800  RDIMM 240PIN



      The memory I bought is 2GB and here are the specs:


      9905429 - 028.AOOLF
