    Very Reliable Ram when upgrading Ram for Desktop

    Very Reliable Ram when upgrading Ram for a Desktop computer. I've had no problems since I bought the Ram 7 weeks ago. Since my desktop computer is an older computer, I plan to buy 2 more of these sticks of memory to max out my desktop computer memory at 32 GB's. I plan to get many more years of use out of my computer.

    I followed my PC's required Ram specs and dropped this in in 5 minutes. Booted right up, no issues. Drastically helped my computer which WAS freezing up. Now no problems running antivirus software and multiple tabs. 12GB combined, what I now have, is perfect for non gamers.

    I bought this 8GB RAM module to replace 4x2GB RAM modules that were possibly defective and affecting the performance of my PC. The sales associate was great at researching the price match policy and was able to save me some serious money.

    I had four sticks of RAM, each 1 GB and replaced it with one stick of 8 GB. My computer kept crashing so I took it back and was advised by a Geek that my motherboard was failing. I had him remove my 8 GB RAM stick, and I replaced the 4 sticks original to the PC. PC has been working ever since.

    The solution for a Slow Computer

    My Windows 10 PC kept locking up and running slow. It's my business computer so it always has Quickbooks, a few Excel spreadsheets, email, and internet running in the background. After adding this memory card, we have not had any issues. It was easy to install. Wish I would have done it a long time ago.

    The ram upgrade added much needed speed to my computer. It's definitely worth upgrading and very easy to install (Ram only fits one way on the motherboard so you can't screw up the installation). My computer was back up and running in no more than 5 minutes.

    the jury is still out on this 8 gb memory stick. There was a question of compatibility with existing stick, so I had to replace it. Computer is still running slower than it should and I am still checking to see if there is a problem with the compatibility, installation, or the pc itself.

    I bought the 5 pk of these flash drives because I am in IT industry and use them a lot. I have one that I made into a bootable drive and use it to load windows on new custom builds. This drive has lasted me 2 years. I think I’m good for a while with 5 more. Lol

    I got this for my gaming pc. I had 16gb ram before this, so my computer was already pretty quick. I use my computer for gaming and pic/video editing. Gaming hasn't changed, but that was expected. Where i saw the real performance boost was in the video editing. I can edit anything i need no problem now.

    The challenge for the week involved upgrading memory from 4GB to 8GB in a Dell Desktop with an i5 processor. For some reason, the second memory port wouldn't accept a second 4GB module...enter the single 8GB PNY module which was inserted in the single working memory slot. Victory!!!

    Great and very functional part. The only problem I would say I have is with how expensive RAM has gotten over the years. It was worth the money however since it is doing an excellent job for my computer.

    I needed the correct upgrade modules to increase my motherboard memory from 12 to 24GB (max for my Gigabit mobo)... the 2 8GB modules by PNY were in the store and priced right. Now can play most everything at max and get the needed FPS for smooth and perfect gameplay.

    I purchased a motherboard combo recently to rebuild an older desktop that had failed. The kit came with the board, an i5 chipset, and Hyper Fury RAM, which started acting irregular after about 3 weeks. Purchased this RAM and have had zero problems, PNY makes good products!

    After buying a more expensive memory for a custom PC build and it not working, I was forced to find a replacement quick. This memory works fine and has the same specs as the more expensive ones. Being in stock locally was a blessing the day before Christmas

    For some reason this module went bad after having it just after 2 months. I have never had a module go bad on me that quick. I had bought PNY brand memory before and never an issue. Maybe I just got a bad one or a virus issue I had made it faulter quick.
