Local Microcenter Memory

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I noticed microcenter is now stalking there own brand of cheap memory 4GB for 20$ I'm not a heavy gamer anymore, So I sold my other video cards to family or they're in other rigs other then my sig rig but I finally decided hey what the hell it's try it out it's only 20 bucks a cheap upgrade to 6GB, I don't know If anyone else has tried these or seen these but they do not come with heat shields on them that are black like advertised they come with none actually but for 20 bucks I'm pretty satisfied with the purchase I think these are perfect for mid to low end builds just figured Id share my experience. These aren't the best sticks in the world for at such a cheap price, I may just get another set or two.

The only Issue I have is that they advertise them with heat shields and there are none.

Yeah, I'm to impatient to wait for shipping thanks for the info however for local pickup and cheap they're awesome so far. 50$ Compared to 20$ Is much cheaper. My biggest problem with rebates is I get them all the time and never fill them out I needed 1333mhz to match my other corsair sticks btw. There was some there about the same price that were name brand but I figured I'd give these a go because I can't really go wrong trying them. You could probably find cheaper online I don't doubt it but local pickup always makes things easier for me.


I love microcenter I got 100$ Off a 570GTX(I went to get a 590 but they screwed up) and my 275GTX because there website had the prices listed wrong once. Or they've listed they had a card in stock so I'd tell them you know I came here just for that and they cut me a deal.

Having a decent local PC Store is always a plus haha. Anyways I actually have a set of patriots
I have the GSeries X4GB and I have two sets of those in my other computer.

No local frys sadly, My local microcenters selection isn't that bad. When they're in-stock anyways, I've heard fries is really cool though.

Fry's is actually creepy and weird. I go there now and then because it is really the only place here in Phoenix to get computer components at decent prices locally.
