carteriii Posted November 13, 2004 Share Posted November 13, 2004 I ordered VS1GBKIT400C3 from ZipZoomFly.com and have found that it does not appear to be compatible with my Dell Dimension 8300 and the memory which came with it. More specifically, the memory speed drops to 333MHz from 400MHz when the Corsair memory is added. Now, I will say that the package says this is just "VS1GBKIT400", but ZipZoomFly says that the lot number (0436127-0) indicates that it is the CAS3 memory. This leaves me in a less than desireable situation with unanswered questions. First, is Lot #0436127-0 truly CAS3 memory? If it is, then is Corsair memory actually compatible with my Dimension 8300 or not? I bought it based upon the recommendation of several threads here (http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29297 for one), so I'm hoping the ZipZoomFly is incorrect about this lot truly being CAS3. Please give me your opinion on the situation. Do you have the ability to look at the lot number and tell me if this is CAS3? If it is, then does this mean Corsair memory isn't compatible?
