Default Need a little help w/ matching correct RAM

I need to replace some RAM with these specs:
2Rx8 PC3-10600S-9-10-F2
DDR3-1333 Mhz
204-pin SODIMM NOB
CL9

The replacement I am eying is sold at Fry's here...
http://www.frys.com/product/6039418
Patriot SO-DIMM 4GB PC3-10667S CL9 (DDR3-1333) (PSD34G10662S)

Should it work? What does the "NOB" stand for?

Are you sure that you mean 133 Mhz and not 1333 Mhz?

1333 Hhz is the number. DDR3-1333

The replacement RAM that you were looking at should work just fine. Is the machine that the RAM is going into anything specialized? Something to remember about adding/replacing RAM is that if the number of pins and the notch match then it is the same kind/type of RAM and should work. If you mix sticks of RAM that operate at different speeds, then the machine will run at the slower of the two speeds.

@ trusted, please remember that irrespective of what type of ram it is, the notches still match up. I.e sdram, notches match, DDR2, notches match.

All you really have to consider are the speeds. I.E 1gb/2700 & 1gb/3200, both will work in the machine, but the machine will run at the 2700 speed, rather than the 3200, nothing at all to do with notches.

The notch in a DDR2 SO-DIMM is not in the same place as the notch in a DDR3 SO-DIMM. This is what I meant. I understand that you are saying (that just because the notches in two sticks of RAM match up does not mean that they are of the same type) but your statement that the notches are in the same spot regardless of what type of RAM it is is not correct.

What I meant was that the notches all line up, ie sdram, same place. DDR1 same place, DDR2 same place on the same type of memory. Obviously each differing ddr type the notches are in different places.

The only thing which needs to match up are the speeds, ie 1024/2700 - 1024/3200 if both were installed, the machine would only run at the /2700 speed.

Thanks for the info.
