with the Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen3 ?
It's on for 80.00, that's a pretty good deal for 16GB.
Thanks

 

It's not on the Qualified Vendor List, but my memory isn't on the list for my motherboard either and I have no problems.  I built my system on July 11th of 2011 and it has been as stable as a mountain ever since.

 

Here's mine:

 

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 for $57.99 shipped

 

(the color looks different, but it's just a poor photo)

 

Actually, I am very curious:  do you need 16 GB?  Do you need 8 GB?

It's a computer!

I don't know, but if that stick was dead out of the box, then I recommend RMA'ing with the store instead - especially if it was Newegg!  I mean, if it was like that out of the box, then it's a "defective" product and therefore should be eligible for a free replacement.

"especially with Newegg" LOL. No offense to you, TwoCables, but Newegg is the WORST. EVER. The order was from them and its been very unsatisfactory dealings with them. Plus that would require me to have every last scrap of paper and original boxing so they can screw someone else over by sending them the bad stick thumb.gif

IIRC, G Skill RMA is good, is what I heard, but I dont remember if that was G skill or corsair the person was talking about.

Your experience with Newegg is not the typical experience, and that is why I recommended it.  I've never had a bad experience with Newegg.  Most people who deal with Newegg that I know of are extremely happy with them.

 

Here's my first experience, which is my favorite because of how it went down:  I had a brand new ASUS DVD/CD reader back in 2008.  A few months after I ordered it, I noticed that a firmware update was available (I was bored that day), and so I attempted to update it.  I followed the instructions slowly and carefully, but I bricked it.

 

So I called ASUS support.  I didn't get anywhere with them even though I spent over an hour on the phone and only talked with one person.  I was on hold for about 45 minutes.

 

So then I e-mailed Newegg because I didn't feel like being on the phone anymore.  I explained the situation as honestly as I could telling them everything that I just told you, and they sent me a new one for free and allowed me to keep the bricked one.  For all they knew, I could have been lying to them just to get a free one out of them.

 

The new one worked perfectly just as the other one did, it had the same firmware that the other one did, so I did not attempt to update it.  I enjoyed that drive until the day I upgraded to a better one.  I keep the dead one around to remind me of what Newegg did for me.

 

Some of my other awesome experiences are indirect.  Every time I have told someone to call Newegg and request an RMA because their item arrived "defective" (this word has to be used), they ended up with a free replacement, complete with a prepaid shipping label for the return of the defective item.  So that's why I'm asking that you do the same.

 

If you don't want to do that, then try it with G.SKILL.  For all I know, you may have better luck.  All I can say is that if the memory arrived to you dead, then say that it is "defective".

Newegg certainly wont do that now. They refused my RMA because I threw away the original box and was making m pay for shipping when I said it was a DOA and Defective board. They outright refused to give me an RMA because I didnt have the original box. Seriously? Thats just nuts.
I went through ASRock for the RMA. Funny thing, what happened. The RMA board, through ASRock, came from Newegg, and not in the original box. The board they sent me looked used and was even worse than the first board ( first board had dead memory slots). RMAd again and asrock paid shipping. 3rd board has yet to be tested. Havent had time. But once it is, if its again defective...All hell is going to break loose.

Edit: How does a firmware update brick a DVD\CD reader? And how does one mess that up?

And look through reviews. There are tons of people who get DOA boards and have troubles RMAing. Ive bought a number of things from Microcenter. Every single thing worked from them. 100%. My order with newegg? Ordered half or 3/4 of my PC and most parts were defective or had noticeable damage.

You need to understand that Newegg is a retailer and they need to follow RMA rules that are not only set by them but also the manufacturer of the product they sell. They get people that say the product does not work just so they can get a refund/credit after the period expires. They test every return and if it passes then they sell it as out of box product. Fry's and many other places have the same policy about electronics and it has been that way for years that you need to keep all of the original packing material and paperwork. Next time read their policies before you buy.

I have been buying stuff there on a regular basis for almost 5 years and have never once had an issue with a return because I keep all material until the warranty period with them expires. As for paying for you to ship a DOA, yes this stinks but it is because of all the false claims that they were forced to stop this and raise their shipping prices a few years ago as well. It isn't just one or two returns they get per day, it is that many UPS trucks filled with product. People with legitimate returns are the ones that suffer.

I can't tell you how many forum posts that I have seen just on this site alone admitting that they hooked something up incorrectly of had a leak, power surge etc. and made the statement that they would just RMA it back to Newegg. Just search Newegg and I'm sure you'll catch a few and the sad thing is they laugh about it and complain still that they had to pay for shipping. Everyone else is paying for these fools mistake in higher costs and changed policies.

Any other thoughts on this, as to which version to update to and whether do it in increments or not?

Thanks
