Good deal but link now directs to the following message. "Sorry, but no products were found."

I missed this deal.

Still in their weekly ads sale on page 7, but pulled from website. Too bad. Didn't take them long to find that error. Doing a search on Fry's website for it shows a product found, but it won't display it.

Wow, is DDR2 still that expensive? Guess I need to unload my collection that I'll never use.

Yep, back up.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Wow, nice price on good-quality DDR2.

Corsair has gone downhill in the past 5 years and seems to have really low standards now. 30% of the Corsair ValueSelect DDR I've bought in the past 2 years has been bad (and rated 3-4-4-8, despite no chip maker ever producing anything that slow, i.e., the chips were factory rejects), and these 2x2GB DDR2 Corsair XMS sets had a failure rate of over 50% when 5 friends and I bought them a few years ago (50% of the pairs, not the modules, had a failure, and I don't think both modules in any pair tested bad) when they were $20 AR. Be careful with these Corsairs -- test them overnight with MemTest86/86+ and Gold Memory, and don't test them in a BioStar DDR2 motherboard (minimum memory voltage is 1.95V instead of the standard 1.80V, meaning many bad modules will pass).

I guess I could personally care less, if they fail at 1.8v but pass at 1.9v. I'll just bump my board up to 1.9v and live with them.

I had two kits of Patriot "EL" (Extreme Latency), that were rated 5-5-5-12 at 2.0v. They ran fine at ~1.8v at 5-5-5-15/18.

Edit: Anyways, I'm in for two kits.
