RMA'd DDR550, Received DDR400 back.


Recommended Posts

CASE # 403609


I sent in 1 gig of XMS DDR550 and got back 2 gigs of DDR400. I know I haven't seen DDR550 widely available recently, but I was hoping when I sent in the RMA that there were still some in stock.


I think Corsair tried to make up for the fact that it wasn't available by sending me 2 gigs instead of 1, but I really enjoyed the benefits of my previous ram modules. I'm using a 939 motherboard so my cpu choices are all but extinct now and the 550 really gave me some great room to overclock the processor.


However, the TWINX2048-3200C2PT price point (~$105 at newegg) really doesn't match the price point of the TWINX1024-4400C25 (~$190 at time of purchase at newegg) I previously had. Heck, I searched google just now and, well, I only found my old memory modules available at two online locations, both selling it at over $300! Crazy.


Anyhow, are we certain there are no more TWINX1024-4400C25's hiding somewhere in the back room possibly? Or can I get a refund for the price I paid through http://www.newegg.com. Or hey, I wouldn't mind one of the new 4GB flash drives on this site?


Thanks and apologies for the lengthiness

I'll work on that in the morning. In the meantime, I'm sure this has happened before to other people, any idea what the usual course of action taken by Corsair is? Our my requests out of reach?




I would've asked for a '65 Mustang in exchange, but I figured that'd be too much.

I am sorry but the IC's we used to make the faster DDR1 modules have long since been out of production, and the only DDR1 modules we are making in XMS would be Twin2x2048-3200C2 and that is why that was what they sent to you. Normally they would have explained that to you by email or by phone.
