CORSAIR 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model VS1GB400C3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Worst memory I ever bought 10/10/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model VS1GB400C3

Pros: Reasonable price when I bought them.

Cons: At the end of 2011, I bought 4 of these 1GB sticks for my TYAN (tomcat K8E S2865) MB, that has a dual core OPTERON processor. The package from NewEgg sat on my shelf for 9 months. A week ago, I opened the packaging and used these sticks for the very first time.

I am trying to build a basic file server with a software RAID. My installs kept hanging at random points. I tried Ubuntu, I tried debian, I even tried installing Windows, same outcome.

I then went into a memory testing utility in Ubuntu and one of the four sticks failed several tests. I removed that stick, retested the remaining three sticks for about a half hour and when there were no errors, I started a fresh install.

Same problem, the install would just hang after a while. I got VERY frustrated with the system because I couldn't put my finger on the problem.

Among all of the components in the system, I did not think brand new memory sticks could be the problem.

It made no difference whether I tried, "Fail-Safe Defaults" or "Optimized Defaults", install hung anyway.

On a hunch, I removed all three of the CORSAIR sticks, replaced them with other 1 GB memory I had used in the past and the install went all the way thru on the first try. Go figure.

Other Thoughts: Over the years, I have probably handled a thousand memory sticks, but this is the first time that I ran into sticks that appeared to be compatible, but failed thereafter.

Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR2 FB-DIMM ECC Fully Buffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Server Memory Model CT2KIT51272AF667
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: None that I am aware of.

Other Thoughts: Bought my PowerEdge 1950 from Dell about 2.5 years ago, it came with 4GB installed. Dell wanted something around $1,500 for a 8GB memory upgrade, it was too pricey so I passed on the upgrade. I recently bought two sets of these & I now have 16GB.

I may eventually add another two sets to get up to 32GB.
