Just reduced cheapest I have found. I had bought it at £3 higher. I seem to have an issue with my module though and am waiting a response from 7dayshop (random BSOD). Possible quidco as well 1% mine tracked. Also multiples are sent as matching pairs and quantity discounts apply 2-3 £10.99 4+ £9.99.

Thats what I bought it for however I am having issues with my module as mentioned so you may want to hold off atm.
#5
if you are having BSOD do a memory test using Memtest86+
#6
Memtest actually ran fine but I perhaps didn't run enough iterations.
#7
Leave Memtest running for 12 ideally 24 hours

8gb is 39.96

very hot (if ram is reliable) !

Good deal, but I would not buy it. Never heard of Simmtronics.
It's a real pain to debug memory errors. It's good if you lucky and one stick fails completely and not detected on boot up. Usually you get random errors in windows and it takes days to memtest it.

Hot price, but this memory is godawful. A company I recently worked for used to sell it in the barrel loads, and we got a lot of it back. We NEVER got memory back as a rule on any other brand.
#12
It has been noted on these boards that this memory can be faulty and does cause BSOD's. Bear this in mind if you are considering buying some. I bought 4Gb and had to return it as it was faulty - must admit that the 7Dayshop refunded me without any hassle. Although it's cheap I would not buy this make again.
#13
Would this work with this, or can anyone recommend something better?

I wouldn't touch this with a bargepole. You don't skimp out on quality when it comes to core components (mobo, RAM, CPU) as it will cause you problems down the line. Corsair 4GB memory £35, includes heat spreaders and a reliable lifetime warranty. Kingston valueRAM, even cheaper and has lifetime warranty.

The OP has even stated his stick caused a BSOD! Coldddd
#15
anyone know what the timings are? i'll be upgrading my PC soon and gotta weigh up the pros and cons of this cheap ram.
#16
As usual - 7dayshop are selling rubbish. Two orders I made with them (a couple of years apart) both had to be returned for a refund so I wont touch them again. It's fine that they are prompt to refund your money (lots of experience I guess) but that isnt really the point - I want something that actually works, not wastes my time.
#17
Well I guess I must be the lucky one. :) I bought 8GB of the Simmtronic DDR2 800MHz RAM :D for two Motherboards P35 & G31 (4GB in each). No problems at all! :D
#18
Faulty memory is a PITA! I always do a quick memtest86 on new ram (20 minutes is more than enough to find issues in my experience) so I don't go through the pain of random crashes and BSODs!
#19
as a rule there are two things you shouldnt skimp on with pc's
1) The PSU, anything under £40 and your asking for trouble
2) RAM, always go for a brand, and nothing too cheap, will save you a headache in the long term.

Couldn't agree more, Though there are exceptions. If you're building a new PC up, and are able to test the RAM before actually putting it into full use then I don't see the problem with this. If there's no hurry, you can put this in a test pc, rum memtest for a while, after that you can be pretty sure if you've got a good set or not and you can RMA it asap if need be.

Will this work on an imac?

Never seen any kind of memory this cheap before, DDR3 or otherwise, bargain!

Ignore the comments about it been an unknown brand, from my experience this doesn't really matter, and I've built/ sold/ repaired a lot of computers.

Well as has been said the price of a PSU doesn't determine if it's good or not. There are good ones under £40 and plenty of poor quality ones over. I tend to take the general rule that if it has been 80+ certified then it should be of a reasonable quality.

As for point 2.Ram is pretty much the only thing you get a large choice of as all the other parts have limited suppliers (CPU, GPU, Chipset) and hard disk failure rates are pretty much the same in the mainstream market. Yes if buying budget ram I tend to stick with branded budget, but that is not to say that unbranded are poor as many use the same chips as branded. Saying that some branded memory quality varies massively over the range.

I completely agree. I will never by generic RAM, it has caused too many problems. Although branded RAM is not always so good either, I once had some Geil RAM that was flaky. I tend to stick to Corsair, Crucial and Kingston, just using their basic product as I am not an extreme overclocker LOL. Never had any problems with their product.

Never skimp on the PSU. Most people think in terms of "if it fails I'll buy another one", however they overlook the damage that a failing PSU can cause, it can destroy the rest of the system. I once had a PSU where the regulation must have failed on the 12V lines. I had a couple of unexplained crashes, and once I got the covers off of the pc for a bit of internal examination I discovered that the hard drives were scorching hot. I suspect that the 12V lines had gone over voltage, overloading the local regulators on the drives. I had a lucky escape as this could have destroyed all the drives, and been very expensive. I will never skimp on a PSU again. Incidentally this was an Easycool PSU.

I bought two sticks of this memory the last time it was posted here, and I've been having BSODs and CTDs (Crash To Desktop).

I've replaced my dying PSU with a new Corsair PSU, and that hasn't solved the problems, and since everything else is new I suspect it's this RAM.

As others have said, 7dayshop were quick to respond with a refund form (With a freepost return address, no less!), so I'll be returning this RAM, and I've ordered two sticks of Crucial RAM from Play.com.

I would post the deal, but they seem to have raised the price again.

Long story short: Don't buy this RAM. Get one of the cheap sticks from Crucial or Corsair instead. You're bound to have a better experience.

Although, to be fair, this RAM never gives me problems in Windows, only when I'm playing video games. It'd probably serve you well enough in an HTPC.

This stuff is utter crap. Finally got my 3rd RMA to only give me one BSOD a day. Replaced with 8gb of OCZ Gold and shock horror my pc is stable again.

These are all new components, and I've checked the temps in SpeedFan as I'm running games or anything demanding - everything stays within good temperatures.
#37
Btw, I had them in a htpc and it crashed all the time. First set bowed out on memtest number 6, second lot I couldn't be bothered testing the dumps proved it was the memory. Wait for a good deal on some crucial, Kingston or OCZ.
