Ah, back in stock! You can save £1 by ordering them separately as its £11.99 for 2GB.

Extra 0.5% with quidco and 5% more with the RAC discount (If it still works)

Looks very good price to me, HOT :)

Cold as hell, single 2Gb sticks are £11.99 so you're an idiot if you pay £24.99 for two! Plus the singles are in stock & looks like the twin pack isn't.

it's not very clear what these are from description or picture but to be fair matched pairs from the same production batch are considered better for dual channeling and in theory better than 2 which are not paired.
#6
Agreed as above.. better to have a matched pair than to possibly end up with ram from 2 different production batches. Well worth £24.99, voted hot!
#7
for 98% of people reading this who won't even OC it'll make no difference....If this was on a hardware forum fair enough but this is HUKD not FM/Hexus/etc

The description doesn't say they are a matched pair and the picture shows two separate boxes. Matched pairs are usually packaged together.

Nonsense. Dual channel is not OC.

£11.99 for 2 GB. Wow. That is sooo hot I just burned my fingers :p
#11
Buying them together gives no guarantee of them coming from the same production batch whatsoever.

Given that you can get the same product from the same supplier cheaper, this can only be a lukewarm vote at best.

Will these fit into my shiny new Dell XPS One?

Does it even matter if they are from the same batch? If they are the same speed, density and size it shouldn't make any difference - let alone the small difference anyway. I'm running 'matched' PNY pairs in all of my machines but still I don't think it's much to shout about


EDIT:

Found this from Kingston

According to Kingston... to run in dual channel mode you need memory pairs matched by the following criteria:

1. Ram pairs must be of the same capacity (256MB or 515MB...)
2. Ram pairs must be of the same speed (PC2700, PC3200...)
3. Ram pairs must have the same number of chips on the stick and either be both single sided or both double sided.

Really doesn't make much difference. A properly matched pair will actually be tested together and that's why you pay a premium.

This is just two sticks of RAM from the same manufacturer, and not worth paying £1 to get this "pack".

1. True.
2. False. (it should default to the lower speed)
3. False.

You can run sticks in dual channel mode even if they have different number of chips on them or single or dual sided. However the chances of running into problems is much higher.

If you are running 'normal' XP, the maximum memory that can be used is capped at around 3.5GB due to the system architecture.

If you want to go higher than this, you'll need the 64 Bit version of XP.
#21
What is this this RAC discount?
#22
How do I get 64bit XP?
#23
Purchased 2 of the seperate 2Gb sticks. Awesome deal!

Re XP64: I don't think it's possible to buy it anymore. XP64 has been completely superseded by Vista 64, which has far better driver support and less compatibility problems.
#24
running 4 x 1gb sticks of 5300 in a quad 6600 machine. Everything else in my vista score gets 5.9 but my ram is 5.0 will this help much?

Nonsense. Dual channel is not OC.


:roll: I know, hence my comment...

Matched pairs help stability, if you are not going to run the RAM over it's default speed then you don't really need a matched pair. It's mostly for performance junkies not the average Joe who will buy this RAM & stick it in their rig then never overclock their CPU never mind set manual RAM timings ;-)

Final Note: As this is probably NOT a matched pair (it'd say if it was as this is a selling point) then you would be better off buying 2 single sticks & save yourself £1. Also if you ever have to RMA it you don't have to send the 'set' back just one stick.

I think "idiot" is a bit harsh for the sakes of a quid!
#27
I sometimes wonder if geekery isn't just an manifestation of obsessive compuslive disorder. Anyway, you're all basically just wrong.

Dual channel doesn't require matched pairs. Matched pairs are a marketing gimmick that lets companies dupe the more paranoid and less informed of its customers into paying inflated prices. See also: Any product with "gamer edition" or more than one X in its name. Four of more and you know you're getting screwed.

Dual channel works fine with modules from different batches, made on different days, in different months from different years, by different companies, with different densities, and with different capacities. It is all within Intel's spec. And if you have a Dell laptop with 3GB of RAM in it, there's a strong chance you have two modules equally as different as I've described above working away under your fingertips as you read this. Did your PC just crash? No? That'll be further proof that it works perfectly, then.

and of course the whole world does exactly as it is told to by intel, even the lowliest taiwanese code jockey who's just done a 70hr week for £30 wages and is in a rush to get home for his kiddies school play!, eee a perfect world eh!

Unless you have a 64bit os, you wont see more than 3.5gb at best.

Windows 7 is out next year and the reviews say that it is Everything Vista SHOULD have been
#34
Sheesh people, ram does not have to be from the same production batch. People are advised to buy in kits because of the existence of incompetent people who don't match the specs. As mentioned, using different manufacturers doesn't even matter as long as both sticks have lowest common settings (clock speed, cas latencies, voltages) and the motherboard is able to apply those settings.

Also dxx real geeks would know this. :thumbsup:

edit: This is ensured by jedec standards.

I am only running 2gb of ram but get a score of 5.9. Maybe because I have my ram timings set to 4-4-4-12 whereas your ram may only be CL5 rated?
Also, got my DRAM overclocked to 365MHz

The Memory Score
The memory score measures the bandwidth of moving data into and out of memory in Mega Bytes per Second. The higher the bandwidth, the better the memory.

Not having enough memory is a limiting factor on performance. As a result, the amount of memory in the system constrains the score value. The amount of system memory is determined by the overall system memory minus any memory reserved for graphics (if any).

The amount of memory limits are:

Amount of memory
Highest possible score

Less than 256 MB
1.0

Less than 500 MB
2.0

512 MB or less
2.9

Less than 704 MB
3.5

Less than 960 MB
3.9

Less than 1.5 GB
4.5

The score is calculated by doing simple read and write tests on the RAM. The slower it is running the lower the score. Your score sounds like it is running at 400mhz or 533mhz.

Would upgrading to 800mhz help much in day to day work? Unlikely. Also check that the RAM is running at the correct settings and that the motherboard can run the RAM at those settings.

This deal is for DESKTOP there is a deal on offer for laptop memory but this deal is NOT compatible for you!!
#38
ihave two 512mb at the moment.
Can i put these chips in.
I apparently have two slots left over empty.

Used [url]www.crucial.com/uk/systemscanner/viewscanbyid[/url]

And it told me i could have 2 chips at 1 g. But their prices are somewhat different. at £46.


My layout according to 'crucial.com'
[COLOR=magenta]Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot[/COLOR].
#39
my friend has an old dell, inspiron 2200, running XP on 248MB!!!
Can he upgrade his laptop with an additional 1GB?
How/where to find a compatible memory?
#40
I have 1GB of RAM installed. Now, according to crucial.com, my system requires that i install memory in pairs. So should i buy this, remove the old 1GB and keep these together? Thanks

Also, "crucial" says this:

"Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory."

As this is PC6400 does that mean my pc is not compatible with this RAM?

Thanks for helping a newbie out.
