Hi there,

i just bought 2 x 4GB 1066mhz Ram for my macbook pro and the branding is Strontium, i personally have never heard of it and i want to just check if its good.

Here's the link to the RAM i bought:
http://www.strontium.biz/products/memory-modules/notebook-memory/ddr3-4gb-1066mhz

I am not sure of its Latency timings, on the website it says:
Programmable CAS latency 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 supported
which i am confused about.


If anyone could help that would be great, Thanks!

From:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strontium_Technology#History

Strontium Technology was founded in 2002 by Mr. Vivian Singh and Mr. Anshuman Gupta, who started the operations in Singapore and gradually expanded to South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, India and USA. It actively collaborates with Hynix Semiconductor and Micron Technology, with many of their integrated circuits incorporated into Strontium-branded memory.
You can find the information regarding the necessary RAM specification in the manual of your Mac or on:

If I were you I would have bought RAM from G.Skill, Corsair, or any of the other big companies.

I built a windows machine a couple years ago and made the mistake of cheaping out on RAM with a [sort of] less well-known company (A-Data), and paid the price (system would freeze & blue-screen regularly). That same machine is now running fine with G.Skill Ram sticks.

(Though A-Data has since sent me new RAM sticks that work fine, so they're a good company too; in case anyone considering A-Data happens to read this ;))

So yeah. Hopefully your RAM turns up okay! :cool:

Good choice

Hey Patric,
You had made a good choice according to me. I have been using Strontium 2GB DDR3 module for the past 2 years and it has not given me any problem till now. Its a neatly priced also.So as per me, you choice is perfect...

Er...wouldn't it make more sense to ask about it before you buy? :D

Heh...this is like getting married and then asking if you made the right decision.:p
