Our Review
We were able to test this memory with both an AMD and Intel CPU setup on ASUS motherboards. We did not use a Dell specific setup and neither system seemed to have any issues with this. It is a simple plug and play setup, no software installation required and both motherboards recognised the memory in full at boot up. Their performance was as expected, a big increase on DDR2 but nothing spectacular on a DDR3 level. All in all, reliable, easy to install but we would recommend sticking to Dells requirements and fitting this memory in the systems it was designed for.

Other Reviews
Xtra SystemsWe have this in our Dell Workstations, its a bit pricey to upgrade/replace but rock solid for performance so worth the money.
Frank TorresInstallation and reliability, this memory gets top marks, however finding it and at a good price is difficult. I would love to know if the KVR memory works instead of this as it is far cheaper and looks the exact same spec. Does anyone know.
