TwinMos PC3200 256MB different versions ?

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Louis van Abeelen, Jun 28, 2003.

  1. Hi all,

    Recently I ordered two sticks of TwinMos DDR400 256MB memory to be used in a
    dual-channel configuration (in my soon to be delivered Albatron px865pe Pro
    II mainboard)

    The webshop delivered me the following modules (see

    Can someone of you tell me what the difference between these modules is and
    if these will be able to work together in a dual DDR400 channel

    I heard that the chips have to be identical so I'm worried if I'm not better
    of returning on of the two ?

    I think the webshop could have done you a favour and delivered you 2 modules
    that were exact the same.
    I see on that you can buy a kit with 2 modules tested to
    work together in dual-channel. Wouldn´t that be a smarter buy, if the
    webshop has them, of course.
    I cannot find those detailed specs that f.ex Samsung has for their modules.
    So it´s hard to tell.
    But the partnumbers for your ram differ clearly.

    No kidding. You should not have recieved one stick with a heat spreader
    and one with a heatspreader. I'd raise hell about that.

    err.."without" a heatspreader. WTF is up with some vendor doing that?
    That's total BS!!!!

  5. If they can't even handle delivering two chips that 'look' the same I think
    asking two that 'are' the same is a little to much asked ;-)

    .... but I know what you mean, they didn't have the dual-channel kits btw.
