Topic: Hot deal!! 64MB RAM upgrade, 8 chips for $8!

The content of this topic has been archived on 20 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

IMPORTANT: Just ask the seller if he has a module with  HY121622 chips. Otherwise he will send any random 512MB module!

While searching options for upgrading my router's RAM,  I found this: … 4ac08dba33

Its crazy cheap!
A 512MB SODIMM module, EIGHT HY5DU121622AT-D43 chips (this is the fastest, DDR400 CL3 - tRCD3 - tRP3), for only $7.90!
I've just bought it! I thought it was interesting to share, so I'm posting this.


I have received the RAM, but sadly, it didn't came as in the photo.
It had 64Mx8 chips (HY5DU12822) instead 32MX16 (HY5DU121622)  sad. Damn!
I contacted the seller, he was very kind!, He searched for other module and sent me another RAM module with the HY121622 chips, FOR FREE!.
Anyway, I sent a payment to him for his good intentions!

512MB/64MB=8, so must be EIGHT chips, a dollar a chip. Crazy cheap indeed. Should hint the guy to at least double the price...

Oops . That's true, this is a bit embarrasing lol
