OWC OWC1333D3W8M16K 16Go DDR3 1333MHz ECC


Recommended Posts

Hi all !!!


I bought this this ram kit on amazon OWC OWC1333D3W8M16K 16Go DDR3 1333MHz ECC, but it doesn't work.


This kit is well ECC and unbuffered, that's why i don't understand why.


The server loop at 90%


Does someone have an idea or an explanation ?


Thank you for excusing my english this is not my first language ;)

OWC has a bad reputation for mislabeling memory. My guess is the memory you have is Registered. If you can post pictures of the modules you have, both sides, I should be able to tell if they are Registered or Unbuffered.

That is a Registered DIMM.

In the top picture, the chip in the middle that has 'IDT' on it, is a register chip.

Return them and get your money back.

The Crucial DIMM should work. The description is accurate:

The picture in the ad is not correct, but that is probably a marketing thing.
