Good RAM, but ...

Thomas H., Newegg
29 October 2010
  • Summary: I'm sure this is somehow self-evident to the more alpha geeks among you, but I matched the (more complete) specs I had printed on the old stick to the (less-complete) spec listed on Newegg (less) and still no dual-channel.
  • Pros: Solid RAM for the type it is, memtest86+ likes it. Crucial modules I've had before seems to be good.
  • Cons: Not fully compatible with older sticks of the same P/N. I bought this to upgrade an older box that already had a stick of Crucial CT6464Z0B in it, and bought this partly to maintain dual-channel memory mode. This new CT6464Z40B runs fine, but only in single-channel mode; it won't dual-channel wit...

New packaging is terrible

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2009
  • Summary: Stay away until Crucial turns their packaging design back over to engineers instead of accountants.
  • Pros: It works. I've used Crucial memory for eight years and have never had issues with stability or DOA parts.
  • Cons: The new packaging is a disaster. The modules are completely unprotected from ESD, and they come in those ubiquitous plastic nightmares with the edges sealed so they must be cut open. Removing them without flexing them is a delicate exercise. My first Crucial memory came in a sturdy cardboard box ...

Nice Kit - If You Scrap Your Old Memory

Anonymous, Newegg
26 April 2007
  • Summary: I am very grateful to Newegg for letting me return this otherwise functional kit; I could not get this kit to play nice with my older Crucial 2x512MB DDR-400 kit on my dual channel motherboard.
  • Pros: Great standalone kit. Stable and reliable performance when used alone.
  • Cons: Not recommended as an addition to existing memory. Most dual channel motherboards require identical DIMMs across the board; having the same memory manufacturer is not enough.

Not compatible

Jeremiah G., Newegg
1 February 2006
  • Pros: Appears to be great memory
  • Cons: This appears to be great memory but I cannot get it to work in my emachines T5026 computer. I tried everything and it just will not boot up with this memory. I know the memory works as I tried it in another system and it works beautifully. I can't figure why this is not compatible. It meets all s...
