Please help me choose used DDR3 ram - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok, I will take a closer look to these Micron sticks and ask seller about them. BTW, could you tell me please what are best ram manufactures in DDR3 era? I'm asking about this because I can also buy some OEM modules from Samsung and Hynix (and Nanya? I think).

The thing is, nowadays there are very few OEM RAM manufacturers. Hynix, Nanya, Samsung, Micron... I think Elpida got bankrupt then bought, Infineon is no longer on this market...
They are few and I think they all provide good RAM dies. The rest is the assembly, and it seems it isn't very difficult as pretty much every RAM stick with the same dies behave the same when assembled. The exception is the absolute high end DDR3 2400+ where the best dies are harvested and placed on multi-layer PCBs to have the fastest RAM sticks.
Just be careful with OEM sticks not to buy by accident buffered dimms. ebay is full of DDR3 buffered dimms that must have been installed before on servers, but are incompatible with desktop boards.
About the E-Europe I know a country quite well and it's true over there there's less choice and higher prices if you buy from the knwn sellers. There were ways to get no-name dimms, I bought some, and they worked well because they had Micron dies. More often than not though I had to manually dial-in CAS/RAS/TRFC and other sub-timings or voltage to stabilize them

Many thanks for the info and all your replies in this thread. You helped me a lot, I appreciate it very much. And since these ram is pretty much the same, I will just go with the cheapest:)

Once again thank you very much for your help.
