4 out of 5 eggsGood Memory PC-4200 Computers

Pros: This memory installed fairly easily (it is ram..), and after I booted back up my computer, there it was. The heat spreader on the ram seems to be of very high quality, it was a nice touch. I ran the computer with both Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (to make sure all 4GB's were being seen), and I now run it stably with Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. (3.5GB are able to be seen) I didn't check to see how hot the RAM is, but seeing as the 1GB stick that was in the computer before ran very cool without a heat spreader, I'm sure it's not a big change at all.

Cons: The plastic packaging is evil. After getting the back off, I couldn't remove the ram because the little indentation they were sitting in was warped perfectly so that the ram couldn't come out, but also so that cutting it was basically out of the question. Eventually I ended up cutting a very small part and then carefully tearing it, but it was much more trouble than it should have been. The other con is the very high price. It seems like NewEgg and other computer parts retailers are beginning to phase out older ram like this, the price for 4GB of PC-4200 when I looked just about a month ago was a steady $35-$45. Paying the $51.99 I paid, it seemed a lot after watching the price not move for 3 weeks.

Other Thoughts: If you have a computer that takes PC-4200 ram, and you need 4GB, buy this.
However, if your computer can take a faster type of ram, do not buy this because of the high price.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks, and overclocks too!

Pros: These worked out of the box, although I did optimize the associated BIOS settings afterwards. In particular, I overclocked it just a little, to run it at 696MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings, at the default voltage of 1.8v.

After overclocking, I ran Memtest86+ v2.11 for seven hours and there were no errors.

Cons: No cons really. I did not have the problem of the heat spreader falling off, even after the RAM fell from my hands on to the ground.

Other Thoughts: I'm used two of these, for a total of 8GB, with my old Asus P5WDG2-WS motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not purchase

Other Thoughts: Stick to a recognized brand.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fantastic memory overall. For the price it is very fast and runs relatively cool.

Cons: One stick arrived DOA, but I only really needed 2gb. Since it was a manufacturing error I won't mark down the rating. The other stick works phenominally on its own.

5 out of 5 eggsTo the poster below in regards to a Gateway computer

Pros: umm, did you remember to clean out your power supply? Most of the time when People buy machines, offen times they neglect the maintenance on their machines. I have taken apart a machine, Plus shot some clean dry air into them, and almost coughed when I saw dusts and lint coming out of them. Your psu must have gone out since you prolly did not even clean out the dust and other foreign material out of the unit.

Cons: What is the use of having a computer if no maintenance is performed on it? Its like buying a car, you gotta change the oil in it, keep tires inflated, etc. Computer is similar to a car, only with an air can or an air compressor with a filter attached to it. Oh by the way, New computers come with cheapo power supplies. Just to let you in on a little secret. It would be advisable to buy a new psu to keep it handy in case yours goes out.

Other Thoughts: To tell when a computer is fixing to fail, especially the white box brand (built from scratch), your power supply will fail in different stances, for example, your pc is running while the fan in the power supply is not turning, your pc turns on and then shuts off, that could be the cpu overheating or the caps blown, google this, and it may be the power supply going out. You will have to google the iffy of the computer problems. I have been around machines all my life to know exactly what I am doing. You can learn more on your own If you wanted to. By the way, I haven;t purchased any of these yet, I know it will work from the box, new egg hasn;t messed me over on anything. I still got them as my favorite computer outlet. New egg, you are still number one in my eyes.
