Just wanna post a miserable experience at this era of crazily priced ram.
I bought a pair of Adata XPG DDR4-2666 ram from Lazada during Lazada's birthday sale, approx RM800 wallet damage. I could sense that Adata is clearing it's DDR4-2666 stock, while others were clearing DDR4-2400. PCMR probably laughing at these puny speeds. Hoping to find GSkill SniperX 3400 but no where to be found locally.
After 6 business days of waiting, finally NinjaVan courier arrived (via his personal car
) in the afternoon (approx 1:30pm). Yay. Time to unbox:
Nice packaging (with the magnetic flip cover) but... Failed to POST
This is on my ASRock Z170 Gaming K6 motherboard with the latest UEFI/BIOS 7.40 (7.40 is just Spectre and Meltdown fix from 7.20).
Reset CMOS, power cycled, different RAM slot combinations, even try with just 1 stick of ram - I've tried all but failed - debug code 55.
The RGB lighted up, cycling the rainbow color, but fail POST.
After losing all hope, I re-inserted back my trusty Corsair ram and powered up my pc to initiate Lazada's defective product return. Then rush to the nearest PosLaju at 5:00pm for return. Didn't know that I have to bring my own box/packaging, ended up paying RM3.20 for a stack of PosLaju plastic bags just for a proper packaging of these ram boxes.
I thought I could score a good deal on Lazada but end up getting a lemon. Sigh. Luckily didn't waste any precious voucher on the purchase. Anyway, pray that I'll be getting my Lazada refund asap. This post has been edited by Skylinestar: May 3 2018, 06:58 PM
