So i installed 8gb ram in my friends macbook pro 2010, and then i googled my macbook pro late 2008.. and it said that i can not put more then 4gb dd3... (2x2gb) that is what i have right now. Then some form had some post that the Macbook 2008 can support 6gb (2gb+4gb) ... So i put all 8 gb (2x4gb ddr3) and it did supported it, the macbook was running just fine and the system spec were showing 8gb ram!!!!! My question is this, is there any danger and risk of doing that? can it over heat and burn any of my computer components? thanks you !!!! hope to get a clear answer.
