damn it, I just bought another 2gb of Crucial Ballistic for my system! Oh well, voted hot.

I've ben looking at RAM recently. This looks like a fantastic deal for 4gb.

Has anyone tried these?/Know how they perform?

Please remember folks that you need a 64bit version of 2000, XP or Vista to use more than 3GB of ram without problems.
Otherwise a great deal.

Since when is 60 squid 34% of 120 squid? Nice deal, regardless.

2 GB XTC modules are £35 a piece, i know that 2 GB sticks are a little more than 2x 1 GB modules, but it's not a "66% saving".

Still an ok deal...

These arent cheap modules though these are very good quality ones not ****** ones

Problems? So I can't have 4gb RAM running 32bit Vista Ultimate? :?

No Vista 32bit can only see 3gb of RAM.

And guess what most people have 32bit Windows

3.5 actually as I have 4 gig installed on mine and it sees 3.5 of it.

Did hear it also includes graphics card ram too,

Heard you can patch it though

It varies from system to system but you can expect your 32-bit Windows to typically see between 2.8 and 3.5GB, and as ryouga says it depends on graphics card memory.

It's still a great buy. Excellent RAM at a good price.

The amount of Ram you'll see on a 32 bit OS is affected by the size of the OTHER items on the motherboard that require memory addressing (eg sound card, graphics card, hard drive manager, port manager etc). Therefore you can't predict exactly how much you'll have without knowing your exact system. The graphics card is the most significant chunk of this.

All that can be said is that "You won't see it all".

rYouga there isn't a batch. To fix it you need to move to a 64Bit Operating system (XP64, or Vista 64).

Does anyone know the timings on the Ram?

Cheers.

Nope, 4GB is the address space limit for any 32-bit system. This includes all peripherals, graphics, IO, etc. You'll never see the full 4GB in a 32-bit OS; you'll only get 3-3.5GB

This is a very good deal, voted hot...but i have 1.5GB already on my 32 bit system so ill have to go the other way and get a 1GB chip.But still awesome deal voted hot!!:thumbsup:

timings are pretty rubbish, not high end ram. Ballistix 4-4-4-12 is generally a much better clocker.

If you run everything at stock though then this is a good deal.

This exact set have been 63inc on Amazon for quite some time now, but still a svaing is a saving..

Agreed. I picked up a 4gb kit of Geil Ultra RAM for a little bit more than this price, but with the 4-4-4-12 timmings.

Still voted warm as it's a great price for 4gb of quality RAM :thumbsup:

Ok - silly question time (off-topic as regards OP - apologies)

I have a Q6700 processor running 32 bit Vista with 2GB of RAM

I know if I add a further 2GB it will only "see" 3GB in total (approx)

So should I just add 1GB stick? Or does the memory have to be installed in pairs ... i.e. 3GB will not work unless I buy 2 x 500MB sticks?

putting rrp as £120 is misleading as you can buy the 4-4-4 version of this for £88: memoryc.com/pro…tml

ive just bought myself the ReaperX pc6400 4-4-3 ram for £94 off ocuk, overclocks to around 1160 @ 5-5-5

I bought another 2GB of the OZC platinum RAM for £35 from ebuyer yesterday (ebuyer.com/pro…755) . It may cost an extra £10 in total but the timings are better (4-4-4-15)

Overall I think its probably worth it to buy the better stuff. Especially if you are on 32-bit, you wont be wanting 4GB anyway.

Apologies... for the mathematically gifted among you who did spot it, the RRP was £179.99, with a "£120" saving. My typo, my bad :roll:

Regardless, this is still a good offer.

Nice deals, but there you're getting 4 sticks of RAM, some MOBO's are picky when they have all their DIMMS filled.

Voted HOT, order 2 lots to fill up my pc, and yes its 64bit vista

This might be of interest to anyone who like me wondered why the 'limit' seems to fluctuate between different people as to how much ram is available to be addressed by the system.

You got shafted there then...

They were doing it for about £65 in "this week only" only yesterday

dual channel won't work correctly unless all DIMMS are filled.



Absolutely NOT true. Dual channel works fine with matching modules, as long as you pair them correctly in the correct DIMMS.

This issue is supposed to be addresses in vista sp1.

With Windows Vista SP1, currently planned for the first quarter of 2008, Microsoft will force the operating system to show the full amount of system memory installed, and not only the memory that Vista has available. The Redmond company warned that the change will ultimately depend on the integration with the machine's BIOS and, as such, not all Vista users will experience it. But, it does not mean that Vista SP1 will resolve the 4 GB of RAM limitations of the 32-bit Vista operating system. In this context, if you have a 32-bit copy of Vista, there is no point waiting for SP1 to enjoy up to four GB of RAM, the simplest solution is to go 64-bit.

"Due to an architectural decision made long ago, if you have 4GB of physical RAM installed, Windows is only able to report a portion of the physical 4GB of RAM (ranges from ~2.75GB to 3.5GB depending on the devices installed, motherboard's chipset & BIOS). This behavior is due to 'memory mapped IO reservations'. Those reservations overlay the physical address space and mask out those physical addresses so that they cannot be used for working memory. Significant chunks of address space below 4GB (the highest address accessible via 32-bit) get reserved for use by system hardware: BIOS – including ACPI and legacy video support; PCI bus including bridges etc. PCI Express support will reserve at least 256MB, up to 768MB depending on graphics card installed memory", explained Hilton Locke, Microsoft Software Test Engineer.

Wow, my estimation was pretty ban g on then

Shame Microsoft couldnt be bothered to port PAE over to desktop versions of Windows:

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ion

Would be shooting themselves in the foot and give no real reason to move to x64 Windows

Interesting article. Thanks.

You should be able to address 4 gigs of memory on a 32bit os. Is this a problem in windows?

Guys this memory clocks to 5-5-5-18 and works perfect

nope, that was the 4-4-4 Reaper kit, not the 4-4-3 ReaperX kit with great heatsinks which allow alot of overclocking. That can only overclock to around 960mhz 5-5-5-12, this can overclock to 1100mhz+ 5-5-5-12.

One thing about the 4gb..... the system has the full use of 4gb, because other hardware take advantage of the memory.....

On saying that, the more memory u have (correct me if wrong) lets say 8gb, more of that memory would be alucated to hardware use...... and the........

Another qeustion ? would there be problems in stabiltiy or other thing if i put 4gb into my 32bit vista

How do I find out what sort of RAM my son's PC needs? Or is RAM just RAM, does the one type do any machine?

Try the Crucial web site - you can use the Crucial System Scanner tool or if you have the make and model you can put those in and it will tell you the RAM available.
