I'm thinking of getting this ram but a little line in the description is putting me off <br />
<div style="margin:20px; margin-top:5px; ">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px">Quote:</div>
<table cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="99%">
<tr>
<td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset">

COMPATIBILITY NOTE: Buyer is responsible for checking compatibility before bidding. With incompatible motherboards, this ram may read as 512MB or may not read at all.

</td>
</tr>
</table>

That's just your standard CYA statement. Older motherboards may read the RAMs size incorrectly; this is true of all upgrades.

I think I'll leave these sticks, they're high density

high density just means it wont be double sided ram, high density sticks use higher density ( so larger in terms of mb ) chips , so they dont need to be double sided <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">

yeh they used to have issues with older boards, but i seriously doubt you would have problems <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
you can always send an email to the makers of your motherboard and ask them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

yeh for overclockability ( *** is that a word <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> ) i wouldnt have a clue how well they would do, but for stability expect it to be decent.<br><br>
Dont forget samsung are one of the largest ram chip manufacturing companies in the world so it wont be an inferior product <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
