Found 6th May
Nice discount popped up on these, available in red (using link above) or white (at this link, 26p dearer). Price shown includes the cheapest postage option (3 to 5 days).

It is a Micron chip, dual rank RAM. I have heard from some folks that it overclocks well although your mileage may vary. This comes in at about £9.26 per GB, which is about as good as it gets for an 8GB stick of 2666mhz DDR4 RAM these days (from a reputable manufacturer too).

For the time travelers out there, prices haven't been this low for just less than a year, according to PCPartPicker.

Would this be a suitable upgrade for my Amstrad 512k?

You probably want to go for something quicker, otherwise you'll bottleneck that bad boy!

Thanks for that.

The last thing I want for my mining rig.

if only our courts weren't so stuck in the middle ages with county court judges that don't even know basic law form the last 30 years
I ordered a 16GB kit of this from Amazon Warehouse for ~£120 and it arrived today and whilst the packaging was correct inside it was a 4GB kit of DDR2 800.
There are some real 'jokers' out there.

Mirrors my first and only Amazon Warehouse experience pretty well. They really are terrible at sending out the right stuff and labelling it properly.

I got a Corsair case that was marked ‘nearly new’ only to find someone had taken all the case fans
Bear in mind the people who receive these returns aren't experts in what the contents should look like, or what is missing from them. At least you can then return the items and either have a refund, or replacement. Buy cheaper, don't expect perfection.

That’s what the amazon guys said. But I’m no expert either, and it took less than 30 seconds to clarify that the fans were missing...

They might no nothing about pcs tho, so do t know fans should come in the case, any case fans will probably be pretty cheap anyway, corsairs are unless they r "RGB cases"

Corsair PWM fans aren’t particularly cheap, RGB or nay.

I take your point but I literally opened the box and there was a manual which said the package should include 1x case, 3x fans, 2x cables, etc. So I guess I didn’t have much sympathy with Amazon.
In my case they had replaced Crucial 16GB DDR4 with Kingston 4GB DDR2.
Checking the name and size of RAM is a lot quicker and easier than reading a manual and checking that everything is present.
I expect them to pick up on basic and obvious fraud but not more subtle stuff.

But you were looking at a product that you ordered so was presumably known to you whereas the person checking the product might never have seen a PC case in a box before.
There are loads of items I could determine issues with quickly but a lot more where I wouldn't know where to start so it might take me ages to determine.
Amazon know what is going on and have presumably decided that it's more cost effective not to check things thoroughly.
Maybe they do for high cost items but for a PC Case and 16GB of RAM it's not worth the cost.
