    No.
    Crucial provides the best options.

    I have used it on 4 computers to add RAM.
    It always picked the right RAM.

    Others may chime in & provide other information.

    Note that Crucial will list compatible RAM. You can then use the specs of Crucial's RAM to find RAM by other makers. That said, most RAM makers have similar RAM wizards as Crucial.

    If you buy suggested RAM from Crucial, they guarantee compatibility.
