not compatible with some standard motherboards

David W., Newegg
2 August 2007
  • Pros: It's cheap. Runs well when it is compatible.
  • Cons: Wouldn't work in a Dell P4 motherboard. However, Kingston value RAM DDR400 worked fine. Had to swap memory around until I found a motherboard it would work with.

  • Pros: It's from Crucial and its cheap.
  • Cons: Looks like I got a bad one. Hope it is not representative of their current product line. Other reviewers are having problems too. Hope its just a bad batch.

No dual channel?

Anonymous, Newegg
10 July 2006
  • Pros: None as of yet. I paid alot for these and didn't get anything out of them.
  • Cons: I have 4 sticks of this ram. They wouldn't run in dual channel mode with all 4 together, so I put in two sticks of Rosewill DDR400 ram along with 2 sticks of this ram and dual channel now works. Do these sticks not work in dual channel by themselves?

Junk

Daniel F., Newegg
18 December 2005
  • Pros: None yet.
  • Cons: This is the second set I've RMA'ed back to NewEgg. DOA both times. Crucial needs to take a serious look at thier quality control department instead of pumping the market full of bogus memory.
