Confirmation needed: are these RAM chips identical?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm upgrading my RAM, currently I've got 12Gb of this....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231358





...and I want to buy this on ebay, my only concern is these chips read 12800CL9T, but in cpuz my chips read 12800CL9 (no T), are they the same? I'm assuming they are

Thank you

G.Skill's current product nomenclature breaks down as such:

1) F3- (all products start this way)
2) ##### (e.g. 12800, which is the rated speed times 8 [1600 x 8 = 12800] )
3) CL# (the CAS# latency, in your case CL9)
4) either no letter if a single-stick kit, "D" for a dual-stick kit, "T" for a triple-stick kit, or "Q" for a quad-stick kit)
5) -#GB (the capacity of the kit)
6) two letters for the product line it's in.

Since each individual stick of RAM can't know if it's being sold solo or in a multi-stick kit, it's programmed with the part number of the solo stick. As such, a stick of F3-12800CL9-4GBRL would be identical to the sticks found in a kit of F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL.

In short, yes they're the same.
