Computers should get restraining orders for some of these reviewers;
Gotta love this guy and his review of some Patriot DDR3 memory.
Pros: Okay, high quality ram once you have it properly installed...
Cons: The "Anti Static" metal plates on the outsides of the ram chip are not meant to actually be placed into your motherboard. BUT- as I attempted to remove those plates off of the sticks of ram as gently as possible, the adhesive from the plates ripped off the chips on the side of the ram. Making it Useless! I feel so stupid right about now for wasting the money on two sets of this ram. ): So so stupid. Please do NOT make my mistake!
I really hope this was a joke!
The response from Patriot (PQI)
I just wanted to let you know that those plates are actually cooling modules. Their purpose is to disperse the heat that is generated from a higher cycling, higher frequency RAM. They are not to be removed from the RAM otherwise you will damage the module.
Then there's probably the highest rated thing on Newegg ever.The greatest thing ever!
Especially love this guys review!
Pros: makes 4 wires into 8!
Has yellow wires
has Male and Female connections
Comes inside celophane wrapper
Cons: No blue wires
Other Thoughts: I'm crazy!
