great piece of kit
I needed to expand my Memory from 8GB to 16GB for complicated digital photo processing. It was especially helpful to determine which RAM was compatible with my motherboard and the existing memory bank before placing the order. Everything functons fine.
Phoned to confirm correct, memory very helpful technical people. Arrived very quickly, paid a fraction more buying direct but worth it as you can return as per their exchange programme.
Used in ASUS MoBo Z87-Pro does the job for what I want - Video editing etc.
Purchased a new computer with 8GB and wanted to double to 16GB, the Crucial product was a perfect match and installation was easy. I use and work with a lot of images and this has meant an acceleration in working speed beyond my expectations.
I'm not a technical person, looking at different types of RAM is pretty much just a waste of my time.
The app you can install tested my system and told me what I could use in a couple of minutes. I'll be doing the same for a SSD
Fantastic for somebody like me, recommended
This memory was bought in the hope of solving an ongoing problem I had with my PC crashing. It has done the job to perfection and I have gained from increased speed as well. Delivery was exceptional.
So easy to install, then simply switch on...works first time
Used on Gigabyte mobo.
increased 16-32gb using matched memory no problems
August of 2013, a friend at church gave me this Compaq Presario 2004 desktop computer. He and his wife have moved to Minnesota and I have lost contact so cannot ask them. It only came with 256 Mb and the other slot is empty. A friend in Austrailia (I am in Atlanta, Georgia USA); also has an XP computer desktop but not the same brand. He shipped me 2 x 1 Gig and 2 x 2 Gig memory cards this past Wednesday. Will take 10-12 days to get to me. Do the memory cards have to be specific for my computer or will others work? Can I only put just 256 Mb more in the other slot? I am 64 (almost 65) and have never been inside a computer tower. A friend in my building will put the memory in for me. I am confused on how much Mb is 1 Gig and how much is 2? Here is the scan results for my computer: Crucial USA - scan results
I am sorry for the issues that you have experienced with your upgrade. What is the make and model of the computer that you were installing the memory in? What is the full part number on the memory module themselves? They should read CT25664AA800.16F,etc. Thank you in advance for this information.
I'm an IT engineer and subscribred to this feed.
In looking up RAM for new laptops I occasionally find model numbers off by a digit or letter.
Many times these minor differences are owing to different HD or SSD, Optical drive, touchscreen, etc.
My question is; if model numbers are not an exact match, can this also mean the RAM is not upgradeable?
Thanks for contacting us today. They usually work together just fine and the higher speed module just down clocks to the 1333mhz. What is the make and model of the computer you will be installing the memory in? I would be happy to check the compatibility for you.
I purchased CT51264BF160BJ new from Amazon few months ago which seemed to have normal package/sticker and runs okay.
However, MemTest86 identifies it as Super Talent CT51264BF160BJ.M8F in the PC (JEDEC SPD 1.0).
Does this make sense - was there some temporary issue in manufacturing week 7 of 2014 where Crucial programmed Super Talent's info (module rev x4444, mfg loc 5)?
My more recent purchase of CT51264BF160BJ from NewEgg shows SPD 1.1 with reasonable Crucial info.
Both SODIMMs have the same number of micron chips but the recent chips are slightly smaller.
