Corsair's CMSS512MB-266 is a Single Stick of memory and is the only size in the System Select memory range. It is supplied specific to a vast number of systems including some from Alienware, Compaq, Dell, Apple and Sony. Although it is sold as system specific it has the same specifications as the Value Select Range also from Corsair.

Packaging and Testing
We have only come across this memory once, from a decommissioned Dell Dimension PC, we have never been able to purchase this seperately and whenever we have been asked for it we point people to the far more common Value Select VS512MB266 module.
For all intents and purposes these two memory types are identical, and in tests we have performed, they not only benchmark the same but run error free side by side. They are always supplied in a Dual Rank format, (with most branded memory eight chips on each side almost guarantees Dual Rank), not so with a lot of unbranded, particularly 1GB.
This memory runs a standard CL2.5 at 266MHz and even clocks back to 200MHz if required, however 266MHz is its top stable speed with any attempt to increase this ending in a blank screen and a BIOS reset.
