Just got a $9000+ MP 12 core Xeon - Need To Order Memory ASAP. Advice Please!

I will post pics of my absoultely ridiculous setup that I was blessed with.... but anyways duel 27" cinema LEd displays, fully maxed out Mac Pro 12 core, max processor speed, SSDs, world's fastest graphics cards, etc...

But I obviously chose to keep the RAM to MINIMAL when checking out at the apple store online..... would of chosen nothing if possible.


Anyways: DOES IT REALLY MATTER THE MANUFACTUR WHEN IT COMES TO MAC PRO RAM? I've been told it doesn't?

Yes, I actually do need as much ram as possible. Get into that later as well as post pics...

But SHOULD I JUST GO WITH 48GB (3x16GB) DDR3 ECC PC10600 1333MHz SDRAM ECC for Mac Pro 'Nehalem' & 'Westmere' models[/B] ??

What seems to be most advertised and I know is very reliable and has solid history and reviews...... OWC - other world computing...... And I can get 2nd day fedex shipping within 30 minutes from now MAX if I order. NEED THIS ASAP. But like most people.... im only 23 , trying to ball on a budget...

How can this be legit???

http://www.amazon.com/64GB-PC3-10600...4gb+ecc+memory

I mean ....... It's what, 150 cheaper than OWC? And 64GB instead of 48GB???

Unless I'm just being blind and not seeing something obviously (I don't care if latency is CL9 or CL7..... there is not a world world effect)


SOMEONE KIND PLEASSE HELP ME WEIGH IN???? CAUSE THIS IS VERY CONFUSING TO ME.

IS THAT DEAL LEGIT? JUST PLEASE I'D GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!!!

You just bought a >$9000 computer and in order to save $150 on RAM from a no name seller? Just do the right thing and go with OWC. If problems they will take care of you.

The firmware is going to be looking for a temperature sensor on the DIMM package. Random DIMMs aren't going to work as well as stuff made to Apple's specs.

OWC sells stuff made to those specs.
Crucial http://www.crucial.com/

There are some others.

That is sixteen 4GB DIMMs, so no use to you.

If you want cheap memory then buy from Superbiiz. 96GB (6x16GB is the max you can use) for $714 + shipping and tax.

You've answered your own question... the only problem is that you can't see it, because it's so simple.

You need 100% qualitiest RAM, and you're balling on a budget, therefore you need 96GB of OWC's guaranteed awesome RAM: $1129. How to achieve this?

1) Give the maid six months off and clean your own place for a while. If you live in the Paris flat most of that time, you won't even need to clean it very much, but since you stated that you work so hard, it's no sweat to wash a dish or two while the laundry is running... multitasking is what you're all about, I'm sure!

In math terms: $200x6 months = $1200
$1200 - $1129 = $71 left over for steaks (to feed your pet tiger, 'natch.)

Problem solved, and you *know effin' well* that I'll look for your series!

You just spent $9000 on a computer, just buy it from a reputable source like OWC.

Or did you really buy a MacBook Pro, then you got duped.

Also I'm your age and you're embarrassing yourself.
Obviously you missed the lesson on budgeting. "Balling" isn't rolling with a $9000 computer, then typing like a middle-schooler and whining on an Internet forum.

The 8GB Kingston KTA-MP1333DR/8G ECC modules come out at $70 more for the 64GB kit, and you know that you will get support and a lifetime warranty if you need it, because it's not some cheap generic RAM.

Though I really don't understand how your Saab Aero fits in with buying RAM for a Mac Pro. I knew car analogies differently.

Are we seeing the return of that kid -- from MN maybe? -- who wrote about his M5 (speeding with his mother) and his admission to Harvard and his uncle the judge, and on and on and on?

It reads like that to me -- the tone, anyway.

I was wondering what kind of messenger bag to get for my Macbook Pro so it does not get wet on my yacht or clash with the interior of my Gulfstream G450.

Any recommendations for a screen protector for my iPhone as it keeps slipping out of my Gucci jacket front pocket once I get into second gear on my Lamborghini Aventador?

I'm getting mine fitted with solid rocket boosters for intercontinental ballistic flights. Think of it: Europe->Quickie in NYC -> Europe in less than an hour.

If you're looking for ECC Registered RAM, Hynix is far from a no-name brand.

Go into any data center and take a peek inside some of the rack-mounted servers, and you will more than likely run across Hynix, Samsung, or Micron memory more often than all other brands. Those three brands are the most popular sources of RAM for HP, Dell, and IBM hardware (and it looks that Amazon seller knows this too, seeing as how they made the effort to point it out at least two times in their product description.)

I wouldn't stay away from Hynix, but I would stay away from that seller. Their wall-of-text product description reads like a copy and paste of marketing material, with a few buzzwords slapped in for good measure.
