Works

Dave C., Newegg
23 July 2012
  • Summary: This was installed in a new Dell Optiplex 7010. Bios had it running at 1333MHz. As with most Dell systems, you cannot change the timings. Has the latest BIOS, but maybe the next revision will run it faster. Workstation came with Samsung RAM from Dell that detected 1600MHz.
  • Pros: Cheap RAM and works.
  • Cons: MB auto detected at 1333MHz.

Joanne A., Newegg
18 March 2011
  • Summary: Great RAM ; AWFUL customer service.
  • Pros: Great RAM. Stable, runs cool. Great Price
  • Cons: Customer Service ; PNY rebate center is a JOKE. Just a crock! May as well just buy this memory for the price and overlook the so called "rebate" .

Didn't run as advertised

Matthew K., Newegg
9 January 2011
  • Summary: Would have been nice if the JEDEC values were included in the hardware specifications.
  • Pros: Decent value, good cooling and easy to clean when dust cakes up from the processor.
  • Cons: The memory would not run at low enough latency values at 800Mhz to support the 4-4-4-12 timing. Was able to run at 666Mhz but even in this case it would not run at 4-4-4-12 timing. Had to raise the latency values considerably to get it to run stable in MemTest86+. Returns are also an issue becaus...

Memory

kyle c., Newegg

  • Summary: Probably won't ever purchase anything from PNY again because of this MIR problem.
  • Pros: Stable, cas4... good price with MIR.
  • Cons: 3star rating because he mail-in-rebate is tricky. I bought 2 of these (2x2GB), called their help line and they told me I could only redeem one MIR. So instead of getting my money back on both (which is the biggest reason I bought it...) you can only get your money on 1 package.
