or, as in my situation, will breathe strength into a new computer assembled from non-modern components. And all this for about half the price in the Russian Federation.
I gave my computer to an older son, and to myselfI decided to collect something from the components missing in the bins. On this day, God sent Alexander Yakovlevich a bottle of a zubrovka, homemade fungi, forshmak from herring A for lunch, and the i7-2600K processor and Kingston 2 × 4 GB memory were lying around that day. I bought a miniature case on aliexpress Jonsbo c2SSD motherboard, card with USB3 ports, cooler IS-50, locally purchased the NVIDIA graphics card, hard disk 4 TB and assembled. Gathered and realized that moving from 16 GB to 8 GB is somehow sad.
Although the prices and sales of the Chinese latelyplease less and less, during the summer sale on aliexpress, quite by accident, I caught sight of a lot with ZIFEI DDR3 memory. The price and additional discount of the seller just pleased me and buying 16 GB (2x8) of memory cost me only $ 64.20. Now one DIMM 8 GB costs $ 46.58, but the seller gives a coupon of $ 4.00 for an order of US $ 30, even at this price it is still much more profitable than buying in the Russian Federation. At the sale, the base price was about the same, but the seller gave a discount of $ 10 out of every $ 34 and another coupon 1/1.
Ordered on August 27, and received the order on September 20 - quite acceptable delivery time. The memory is packaged in standard plastic containers, as usual packed in DIMMs and in several layers of pimples.
DIMMs are two-sided, with 8 chips on the side.
Marking DIMMs and Chips
Unpacking and changing memory in the computer. The BIOS immediately identified both memory lines, but it seems that the motherboard does not pull the frequency of 1600 MHz for the memory (the Chinese with the motherboard were deceived)
The operating system naturally also saw all the memory
Let's see what SPD and the operating system tell us there.
SPD of the first line (the second is identical)
How the OS recognized the memory (second line is identical)
I did not want to set memtest86 + (maybeI'll put it later some night) and I decided to test the memory directly from the operating system. I started a couple of tests and told everyone to test 4 GB, so it turned out to test a total of 8 GB somewhere in the middle of the entire pool. The tests passed without errors and on this I calmed down.
Two terminal windows, in each test 4 GB of memory, loaded two cores.
The old memory went to the bins of the motherland.
Memory is good and inexpensive.
Deficiencies not yet identified.
The seller has many positive reviews of this memory from Russian buyers.
Bully Dobby helped me to establish memory
PS memtest86 + for the night did not reveal errors.
