Yup. You won't find OCZ on any QVLs.
Yet, you'll find the exact same IC's from those on the list that OCZ uses. And then consider the ideal that perhaps OCZ gets the pick of the litter from those.
QVL's are like suggesting oils to use in your car. So the Corvette comes with Mobile1. Does that mean Valvoline is bad and won't work at all? Not at all. If you're making memory, you may want to push marketing and get your name on that QVL. You pay Intel/AMD to test your memory and get on that list. It's not cheap at all either. They'll rip through that and say whether it works or not, and it's not a drill Sargent test either. Plug it in, it works on standard stresses, and it gets on the list. You, as the memory maker, pretty much pay a 3rd party to do what you already do as users.
Memory is all about the IC's. If Corsair is on the list as approved with the same IC OCZ uses, what's the dif? The Dif is that OCZ didn't pay to get on some useless list. QVL's are legal schmigal junk that they can default grandma and grandpa with. If you have an actual dispute and the memory doesn't work, if the IC's are the same we can really get to the meat.
May work for newegg reviewers, but most MPC'ers know what IC's they run. And they're on the list. I mean, you have about 3 people that make the IC's. If Adata is on there, the same OCZ IC will work too...if not better.
Yet...I find it odd that memory that is known to be bad, is on the QVL. Don't you? It's an awful stink of the past month, and it's just now getting corrected. Brand is brand...IC's are what's on the QVL.
