2.0 out of 5 stars Komputerbay 8GB internal memory, 4 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Komputerbay 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR2 PC2-6400F 800MHz ECC Fully Buffered FB-DIMM (240 PIN) 8 GB w/ Heatspreaders for Apple computers (Accessory)
These DDR2 have to be placed in pairs, there are two boards on a mac and you buy these ddr2's per pair. I already had 8 gb internal memory in my MAC PRO (four times 2 GB) and wanted to upgrade to 16 GB as I work with pro tools and do also a lot of video working. When I first put them in, the system obediently said I now have 16 GB internal memory.
But after a few days upon checking it had dropped to 12 GB and when I inspected these new Komputerbay ones the system now said they were only 2 GB each. Changing them in different inserts the values dropped to zero GB and when I tried to use them alone, one in each board (like the set up is when you buy your MAC at the start) The system told me one was 4 GB the other one was 2.
It did not make any sense and when I put them back in their original place they were not recognized at all anymore.
I should have stuck to Crucial DDR2, which I had before.
I don't recommend these to MAC users. Sorry !

same happened to me using the original mac pro 2008 ram.. the config for ram placements appears to be different from the one specified in the manual or online diagrams.... SO i don't think it is the fault of KomputerBay memory. intact i bought mine from apple store and had same problem!
