Free Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB low-profile DDR3 with select MBs at Newegg. Eligible boards shown at the following link, though not all shown here have the free RAM as the promo:

One example was already posted here thanks to HotnNow:

Cheapest MB is the Biostar A960D+ for $65.99. Very basic mATX board, but with the free RAM a pretty hot deal.

This is a slight upgrade over those deals IMHO because the free RAM is a single 8GB stick, and low-profile for possible tight-fitting HTPC builds.

I'm playing with one of the Biostar A960D+ MBs and don't see an option for core unlocking in the BIOS. Have updated BIOS to the latest version but still no go. The chipset should be capable of it ... has anyone managed a core unlock with this board?

Hmmmm thinking about buying two of the Biostar A960D+ for 16GB of ram + a backup motherboard if the first goes out....

This promo appears to be back. The previously posted links still works, and a lot of, but not all, of those motherboards have the free RAM again. I also saw that several 1150 boards have free RAM, but they don't show on the OP's link.

It is not ideal, but I put a lot of the sub-$200 motherboards with free RAM in a public wishlist until an inclusive link can be found: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishList...

Seems we just can't kill this with the FW effect. Deal still going strong!

I actually bought 2 low end motherboards just to get 2 sticks of the 8gb low profile ram.
I got the same ram as a kit for $76.49 (shellshocker+code) on 5/9 now $134. I think it was as low as $64, but those days are long gone. Comparison of the memory.

So I figure.

$68 BIOSTAR A960D+ AM3+ AMD 760G I have a CPU that I can stick in for a HTPC.
$90 BIOSTAR NM70I-847 Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz 2C/2T
= $158
- $76.5
= $81.5 for the above motherboards.

If you figure $134 for the kit it's $24 for the above motherboards. That's a dozen per board.


I'll use lesser 2x4gb or 2x2gb kits in them since they're not going to be used for anything special. A HTPC and a low power drive server.

The ram is then going to my nephew's new high(er) end build.
