Who supplies MB RAM?

Hey, for those with an MB or MBP - who is the supplier of the RAM? Crucial? Kingston? None of these? :)

 

Thanks.

according to the link with the images of the MB you posted earlier...

 

Hynix is the supplier of the RAM.

Lol - I should have seen that. My bad.

 

Thanks!

 

I was just pricing out RAM prices for the MB... crucial was around 100 bucks cheaper to upgrade to 2 gig.

One more thing... I strongly recommend that people test their RAM upon receipt. "Rember" is good for this in OS X:

I actually got some bad RAM once, but did not realize that it was the cause of some infrequent crashs and other seemingly innocuous errors for months. I did not really have a serious problem until I was unable to download a large torrent without corruption. It took me a couple days to track down the source of the problem.

There is really no reason to go with brand name RAM. Generic is fine if it is Mac-compatible and it comes with a warrenty of at least say three years or so.

 

This is a good site to check Mac RAM prices:

These guys usually have good deals on Mac RAM and a lifetime warrenty:

Generic is ok, until you have to replace it seven times to find one set your Mac seems to like.

You were not getting Mac-compatible RAM. There is a difference, Apple has a tighter set of specifications. Generic RAM must be designated Mac-compatible or it might not work.

Or you just got some crappy ram because generic is just that... generic...

 

I've found apples timings, are usually pretty lax compared to many PC vendors.

 

Get the crucial. or kingston.

 

a 3 year warranty on generic ram is worthless if the company isnt around next month.

 

Crucial has a lifetime warranty, and excellent support. and a guarantee your ram will work. If not, they fix it, and fast. :(
