Corsair or Mushkin - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Have always gone with Mushkin, and will continue to. Have never had a faulty module with them or had to deal with any RMA's. My Redlines still kickin' 2 1/2 years later.

Okay, guys...
Brand doesn't matter. It's generic memory. It's all the same minimum low-end 1333 CL9 standard. Little overclocking/holding back the rest of the system should be expected with all generic memory. Regardless of brand. Regardless of heatspreaders even, because honestly DDR3 doesn't even need heatspreaders until 1.7-1.8V.

In addition, the prices are terrible. Once again, you can get this mainstream performance memory G.Skill Ripjaws for $42.28 price match. Lower price, much much much much better. I will be extremely disappointed at all people here who continue to recommend the overpriced generic memory.

Would you take a moment and explain what you mean by "generic memory"?

Who IS NOT generic? Samsung themselves?

BTW: Mushky.

Two things:

1. Brand does matter for RMA. I'm not saying one is definitely worse than the other here, but between the two I'd personally pick Mushkin.

2. How do you price match that when shipping is an additional 9.99?

All 1333 CL9 = generic, minimum standard. No ifs, no buts. Plenty of reasons I always tell people to stay away from 1333 CL9--the first, foremost and most evident reason being that you can get better 1600Mhz RAM for cheaper.
Shipping would be the same price no matter what RAM kit you choose (I don't see anything that says "free shipping" on the other modules, weight should be the same). By price match, you buy at NCIX but at the price of the competing store (you can do that at NCIX)

Being that I recently sold an unopened package of Mushkin sticks to a member here and one of the sticks turned out to be bad, I'd say stick with Corsair. (Yes I am giving a refund).

Cheers for sorting me out so quickly I hope you get your monies back or a replacement at least!
I've had issues with SPD being incorrectly programmed on Mushkin ram before but never had any faulty. I HAVE had DDR XMS go bad on me before IIRC

You shouldn't ever judge companies based on past memory quality.
Look at OCZ for example, their DDR2 kits were absolutely magnificient! Enter DDR3...
