DDR3 204 pin to 240 pin RAM adaptor downsides?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, I NEED 8GB of RAM, and I have 16GB of laptop RAM laying around.... You can guess where I'm going with this. So, is their is any significant downsides? Thanks! I don't care about OC'ing my RAM, so that shouldn't be a problem for me.

The only downside I see is POSSIBLy, not being able to use higher performance memories, possibly due to increase in lead lenth.

Thats all I can think of other than having another point of failure between the RAM and CPU.
