    Check to see whether they're pushing Mac Pro-spec heatsinks of not. Using normal PC heatsinks will raise fan noise a lot and worst case actually overheat.

    That is, it should look more like the stuff on the right than the skinny li'l bastard on the left.

    Here's the xlr8yourmac.com reader reports on the different 3rd party RAM choices:

    Reading those... I don't know, right now I feel safest going with Apples memory without going overboard (reason why I'm getting 2 GB for now). Until the prices settle down and these quality issues get settled, that seems like the safest path.

    I just bought some RAM for my MacBook Pro today and the person ahead of me was looking for RAM for a Mac Pro. This was at a third-party RAM store that's also an Apple-certified dealer. The man helping the guy in front of me recommended ALL RAM going into a Mac Pro come from Apple, prices nonwithstanding, because of the heat-sinks and the fact that it's such an important, expensive machine and you don't want anything to go wrong with it.

    Why not get it from Crucial for $100 less than Apple's $300? Apple uses Micron-Crucial RAM: you are getting the exact same thing with the exact same heatsinks for remarkably less.
