While at first glance, it may be in your best interest to shop around. Know that when you purchase RAM from Komputerbay, you're getting Grade-A brand name computer memory. Cheap computer memory, while possibly being compatible, can cause system crashes, error codes in your computer, and even damage to your motherboard! Other sellers may offer you similar looking products for a few cents or a dollar less, but here's the scoop on why: they sell cheap-grade memory and they don't test the modules before shipping! This ends up costing you time and money. Trust when you buy from Komputerbay, you are getting top of the line product from a top of the line company.
We test every module before it leaves the building, and back all of our purchases up with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered 4 sticks of 4GB (2 sets). 3 out of 4 were DOA, didn't get past POST boot screen. At first I thought I screwed up and my motherboard didn't support them, but after research, found out it wasn't my fault (and the fact that one stick works proves this). I tested them individually in DIMM slot 1 and only got one to boot. Also, the RAM i pulled was faster (1066MHz), so I know it's not a speed problem. I thought it could be voltage or max capacity issue, but the fact that at least 1 stick booted eliminated this theory and my mobo reads the proper 1.8V for DIMM slot 1. Also, my mobo is reporting 5-5-5-18 (not 12) on the timings, not that I care, but it's misrepresented. I don't have any issue with the heatsink construction or packaging (it's in a cheap plastic clamshell, dunno if it's electrostatic-safe or not, probably not). I have an RMA with KomputerBay pending. The part that sucks is that I pay return shipping and I found this gem on their website:...
Had to immediately return once to get a working set. The subsequent set worked for a while then just like with the initial set started causing my unit to crash, overall not worth it to keep replacing the product due to return shipping policy (price of return shipping and cost of unit being out of commission) and potential harm to unit. If you value your money, time and equipment then avoid this seller and their products.
Been in IT 20 years and I haven't purchased RAM that is bad since late 1990's, until now. I have read the reviews and saw that many people have said they received bad RAM. I figured they probably didn't purchase the right RAM configuration for their PC, but I matched all RAM specs to the motherboard and the Komputerbay RAM is terrible. Both sticks were bad not just one of them! Spend the extra money and buy Crucial, Patriot, or Kingston.
