Thats a fantastic price. I have the exact same RAM and paid the same amount for 2x512Mb modules not long ago. Its very, very good memory.
#2
WOW

memory prices sure have crashed!

i bought this exact same stuff for 175 delivered from overclockers about 6months ago

amazing deal...
I hear the RAM price drops are because samsung executives in HK got convicted for price fixing :D

Ive read that it is because of a huge over supply in the market. Prices would actually be lower, but then companies like samsung and micron would be accused of dumping which is illegal. I suppose this may have something to do with the convictions of people involved in pricefixing case.

Dumping - selling a product for below its cost.

Great price for quality Ram :thumbsup:

Good deal, shame about the retailer. Good luck if it's faulty. ;)

Bad experience with an RMA eh? All companies have their share of bad apples. However, ocuk pride themselves on the quality of service they give (something which they have to do since they are usually the most expensive out of the big sites). My experiences with them have been good so far.
#8
voted cold due to the extremely poor reputstion of this retailer, both in aftersales and the treatment of their staff.

Not to take anything away from the OP, good find, just a shame that it wasn't from a different retailer.

Ordered the same 2GB dual channel kit from Micro Direct on 11/04/07 for £100 odd delivered! Glad I didn't order two pairs.

Thinking of taking a chance and ordering a second pair from Overclockers at this price.

Thanks to OP.

Shame the cheapest delivery option is £5.25 + vat just for a couple of sticks of RAM. Crucial can manage free delivery (3-5 days) or Special Delivery for just £2.49 + vat. :-(

I use proper retailers, not a shabby little lock up in a back street of Stoke on Trent. ;) They have their own share of bad apples and every other retailers in the UK, commone knowledge amongst those in the know. (only their merry band of forum users would disagree)

Sorry but I'm gonna have to step in here. Whats this bad rep? For a start, ebuyer, overclockers and scan seem to be the big 3 in many communities not just overclockers forums (of which I'm not a member).

I've bought many many times from them, had stuff delivered, and been down to Stoke to pick stuff up. I've had one graphics card die after about a month, and admittedly the RMA wasn't the easiest I've ever had, but it wasn't the hardest either.

Everytime I've been there, there has been a packed shop full of people wanting to spend money, and friendly staff.

I'm not accusing anyone of lying but it seems to me there has been a couple of bad experiences and as usual people are trying to force people to agree with their opinions.

Overclockers are fine, and I'll be getting this offer at the weekend to save on postage.

By the way, backstreet yes, but they are in a unit on a (i believe) old tramway depot which seems well full of other shops too. Not great to look at from outside, but perfectly fine inside.
#13
Never had any problems with OCuk. Had a PSU explode on me, after 10 mins, got it RMA'd, no fuss.

EDIT: checked the RAM I bought in december.... Was 176 (inc vat), now 82 (inc vat)!!!!!!!!!! omg!!!!!!! :shock::shock::shock::shock:
#14
Just placed my order ;-) Thankyou
#15
i believe my current ram is pc2700, so i wouldnt be able to use this would i?

if i did want my machine to use this, what would i need to upgrade? my motherboard?

and can someone please link me to some softwear which is able to tell me my exact specs of my parts plz? so i can find out weather this would be compatible?
#16
I have to agree. Overclockers are very good. As mentioned, you'll find bad cases with anyone, but I find Overclockers service a little more personal (not such a "box pusher" like with bigger companies) from the numerous experiences I've had (including a few RMA's).
#17
Had a pair of these already, and they run great overclocked. Just ordered some more. Thanks!
#18
I'm another happy customer of OCUk. Maybe that's because i've not had a problem yet. I've had problems with other suppliers/e-tailers, so maybe that's why i'm happy sticking with them for now.

Voted hot :)

Can it be used with Dell E520 (offer was with 22" screen)? Thank you.
#20
A quick question for any tech heads....

I've currently got 2x512 PC6400 RAM with two more spare slots. Does it make a difference which slots are used (as long as they're correctly duel channelled)?

i.e. using this image My mobo, should the better ram be placed in the red or yellow slots, or is that irrelevant?

Probably not. This is very high speed ram.

Check anyway.

The Dimms will be numbered (look on the mobo nearby). I always put the faster ram in the lower numbered slots (Accounting for dual-channel)

Yep itll be fine. You may find that you have to up the voltage a bit in the BIOS since default voltage is normally 1.8v. Im surprised you're asking frankly, the DS3 is a very good motherboard.

You may find that your existing RAM is Cas5 in which case, they will slow down the geil RAM. Also, they may hinder any overclocking. Of course, they could be better in whive case the geil RAm will hinder them :p.

You need DDR RAM. If you want to use DDR2 RAM, you will need a new motherboard and most likely a new CPU as well.

Just google cpu-z, itll give CPU, motherboard and RAM information.

You may as well wait till you want a new system.
#25
I'm in the market for a new laptop and wonder if anyone can recommend a low-spec laptop that will benefit from this RAM upgrade? Many thanks. Applesink.
#26
Applesink - this is desktop ram, laptop ram is a different size - so its not compatible! :(

however there are still some good laptop ram deals out there!
look for SODIMM - thats the size you would need, without knowing the laptop its hard to say what would be good!
#27
I'm currently in the beginings of a new build & need to purchase some RAM.
So far all I have is a Core 2 duo cpu. As far as Ram is concerned is this the dogs b*****? What is the advantage of dual channel RAM?
Is PC6400 the standard "quote" for 800Mhz capable RAM?
I'm also only after 512MB don't think I need any more just yet (no high end gaming for me).
#28
Its cheap, but unfortunately I've had nothing but poor experiences with OcUK, orders are seldom sent out correctly and god forbid you try and RMA something or would like to speak to someone on the phone/ want an email answered. They've featured in a couple of national computer magazines due to the shoddy way they treat their customers.

I'd rather pay a few pounds extra and get it from a retailer with a decent reputation for customer service.

I would reccomend 1 gig of RAM for XP and 2 gigs for Vista. 512MB of RAM, is just unnecessarily restrictive. If you look on ebuyer, you can get 1 gig sticks of RAM for ~£25 delivered with google checkout.

£23.xx for 1 gig delivered through google.

Just thought i'd add another good deal, if anyone wants to repost this, feel free to do so.

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=119273

Order, each stick separately and you get 2 x 1GB of arguably the best priced RAM out there for only £83.24 delivered.

Its important that you order separately to get the £10 off twice from google checkout.

Please note they require, 2.2v which can only be set by enthusiast motherboards.

Yeah my existing RAM is Cas5.

I did quite a bit of research when building this machine about 7 months ago, with the aim of being able to overclock (something I've not done before). However its fine for everything I've thrown at it so far using factory the settings so I’m not diving into the unknown just yet.

Think I'll give this a miss.

£83.24 before VAT
#33
nope, order them SEPARATELY with the £10 Google checkout each time and ghost101 is right....

I've found XP runs well on 256MB & come across many systems with just 128MB. All this with ye old 133Mhz SDRAM. I'm currently running 512MB which I thought was on the safe side. I've also done some RAM tests which proof a fair margin is not used so anything over and above would be wasteful unless of course you do run many modern games or cpu intensive programs that require as much memory help as possible.
#35
this isn't the best option as really you should buy a ready matched - and test pair for dual channel operation.

chances are that 2 separately bought ones will work - but can't be guaranteed.

Mark.

Nope its guaranteed. Kits are simply 2 modules like this put together which have identical specs.

What's the advantage of dual channel? I'm rather rusty after "sitting" on my PC for 5years or so.

If you run 1 stick of these modules, you wil get a theoretical maximum of 6400MB/s bandwidth. In dual channel, you will get a theoretical maximum of 12800MB/s. Its important to stress you wont actually see these figures if you test them, but it shows how much of an increase in performance is possible by running modules in dual channel.
