    SINGLE CHANNEL????

    Reviewed By: XXX on X/XX/2007
    Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2
    Tech Level: somewhat high - Ownership: less than 1 day

    Pros: don't get me wrong, it is the fastest SINGLE CHANNEL i have ever owned! and with my setup i can get it at 2,2,2,5
    Cons: OCZ is at fualt and so is newegg. why isn't single channel listed in the description? i already have a 2-gig pair of OCZ plats (that are stated as dual channel) and bought this 512 stick for an added boost in performance and instead i now have 2.5gigs of single channel ram. simply stating this 512 stick is SINGLE CHANNEL sure would have saved me the grief of having to do an RMA.
    Other Thoughts: hey OCZ and NEWEGG! is it so hard to put single channel in the description? you put it for the dual channel but why not for this single? this is so small of a prob for you guys to fix and instead ya get me writing this!

    Manufacturer Response:Hello, to run dual channel, you must have matched pairs of memory running in your system. If you had one stick of this type of memory and then added this one to it, you would have dual channel operation. memory is neither single channel or dual channel. Dual channel operation is possible with 2 sticks of this memory, provided that your system is capable. For technical assistance please visit our support forums at the link below.
    Thank you


    Do people are really that stupid? :bang:

    Yeah people are really that stupid. What we Guru's are here can be considered somewhat of the elite community where we know actually what are we talking about unlike others.

    Just like how people fall for the whole "dual channel" marketing. any memory is dual channel as long as there's two of them... or as long as you buy two of them.

    I find it funny that almost everyone lists there "Tech Level" as high when quite alot of them have no idea what they're talking about.

    Don't really find it that funny, since a lot of people here know very little about how RAM works also.

    Fair enough, he didn't know, that's fine, but he should've perhaps researched the situation before posting that review up.

    I don't think it is that fair to laugh at people for making a mistake regarding ram. After all, we tend to forget that this issue is quite a specialised one, that most people don't appreciate to even exist, let alone grasp at a high level.

    It is like getting laughed at for not knowing that Bavaria has six seats in the German Bundesrat. Obviously it does, but it is not something that most people know, and as such, they shouldn't be judged using the same standards you would apply to yourself.

    RAM is not that hard to understand, at least not to me. Dual-channel does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that 1 or 3 sticks obviously is single channel. 2 or 4 is dual-channel, I mean all you have to do is use a little common sense, but I think some people don't even have that.

    Anyway, if your going to review a product at least understand the basics of what your reviewing, otherwise don't show your stupidity to the world...lol

    I don't think the lad is stupid. Probably just not great with comp hardware. We all gotta start somewhere right.....

    Shame he didn't ask of troubleshoot before posting though....

    I can't decide between that and the "reviews" of the product that include the phrases "I don't have this, but", "I'm going to get one of these", "when this is released", and my personal favorite "does anybody know if this".

    Everybody can find something that they don't understand; the really entertaining people go out of their way to prove it.
