RAM identified wrong?


Recommended Posts


I bought the CMV4GX3M2A1333C9 4GB-Kit. However after I installed the RAM I used CPUZ-Z to check if everything works correctly and to my surprise it stated the "Part Number" as VS2GB1333D4. As I expected my RAM Name to be listed there so I googled and found out that this was indeed another RAM. To check if this wasn't a failure of CPU-Z I also tried "Speccy" but it gave the same results. Of course I checked the "sticker" on the RAM itself, which states CMV4GX3M2A1333C9.

Until now I didn't encounter any issues. I was wondering what this means. Should I send the RAM back to get a new pair?


Hope you guys can help. Thanks in advance.

Can you post a pic of your module please and also your CPUz screenshots.


Either the SPD chip was programed wrong or it's a fake. There is also the possibility the part number is irrelevant. Part numbers can be different than the "kit" number. But what makes me suspicious is that the VS prefix is a couple of years old and before they went to the CMV prefix.


Can I ask where you bought it from?
