ValueRAM is Kingston's high-quality line of 'by spec' generic memory designed with the price conscious system builder, assembler and white box markets in mind.
Comments: This memory is on the Asus P5WD2 QVL (qualified vendor list)--you can fill all four memory module slots on the P5WD2, and it will run reliably.
I read several reviews of faster/lower latency RAM, and it seems like faster RAM gets you only a very slight increase in speed: several tests on various enthusiast/overclocker web sites show only a very slight increase in performance with *much* more expensive RAM modules.
Goal was a fast, but rock solid stable system. These modules passed Memtest86 (24 hours +) with zero errors. DDR2 runs cool anyway, so no need for heat spreaders.
OK, I wish they had blinking lights and such, but, 2GB of RAM, no bling, is better than 1G of slightly faster blinkie light RAM, at least in my opinion.
By the way, have always been a Corsair fan boy; have used Kingston memory when I build systems for friends and colleagues, to keep the cost down--have NEVER had a complaint about Kingston RAM....always works; decided to save some $$ and use it in my own systems from now on.
Very satisfied with these modules, and with Newegg delivery.
Pros: great price, works as advertised in a dell dimension 4700
Pros: excelent company backs up what they sell 100%, maxed out my ram in my old MoBo and free shipping.
Cons: could have bought 800Mhz cas6 for the cost of shipping more
Overall Review: if you plan on upgraging your Motherboard in the near future get a faster Mhz and higher cas most Ram will automaticly down grade to lower settings like 800Mhz, 667 & 533 and cas 6, 5 & 4 or even higher but not more than 3 steps either way just read the specs if they can be found good luck.
Pros: Always a great and easy upgrade
Cons: None other than the size is a little strange to work with.
Overall Review: This is really important for people running XP. If you dont notice a noticeable RAM increase at startup but the memory is recognized at BIOS you need to turn off the "maximum RAM useage" setting. You want to run "msconfig.exe" out of the start menu and access Advaned Options under the BOOT.INI tab. What you want to do is uncheck the top box labeled "/MAXMEM=". This will stop the OS from limiting your memory useage and will require a restart for the change to take effect. Happy upgrading
Pros: perfect! system recognized it right away, Dell has a little fit with new memory on first boot, but that's Dell for you. BIOS flipped out and had to hit F1 to continue, but after that, perfectly flawless. Getting to the memory inside of the case is harder than installing it. it's one of those Dell OptiPlex "sit me up or lay me down" cases, where the CD drive is over top of the memory and processor.
Cons: the edges of the sticks are a little sharp, hurt my thumb when clicking them into place.. i know, i'm a big baby.
Overall Review: shipping rocked!! these puppies were wrapped in bubble wrap, and placed neatly down in a bed of packing peanuts inside of a box that's big enough for my Rocky steel toed workboots. i kept digging through the box looking for stow-away circus midgets, but no luck there. I guess Newegg knows about my UPS lady who likes to throw things onto my porch from across the yard.
Pros: I figured out after trying some high density ram that my motherboard only excepts low density ram. The kingston value ram is just the ticket for anyone who has this type of mobo problem. Once again anyone whos motherboard will only except low density ram.....this will work. The high density ram wwas only being recognized at half size, but not this. Works flawlessly.
Pros: Awesome memory, my dimension 8400 picked it up and its blazing more than Redman!
Pros: Advertised Speeds. No Issues what-so-ever. As expected from Kingston memory modules, Excellent Quality for a reasonable price.
Cons: No heat spreaders, than again it's Value Ram.
Overall Review: I don't OC. Run at stock speeds in my old Dell Optiplex GX 280 with on Intel 915G Chipset and an Intel Pentium 4 560 (3.6 GHz).
Installed Vista Ultimate in about 40 minutes. Memory got a Windows Experience Rating of 4.8. Not bad for the money spent!
