    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!

    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
