	- none of the others exists on the radar screen
	if you want "reliable"

that's worthless .....

no memory vendor will give you a warranty replacement
based on memtest or its variants as compared to their
dedicated multi-million dollar memtestors that supposedly
says the sticks are fine when it went out the door

if these are PC2100 or pC2700 or pc3200 or ???

i assume your motherboard is configured for it
	- check your fsb jumpers on the mb too

== if you want your $$$ back for the bad motherbord,
	-- bring a vicking or corsair memory with you
	so they cannot point the finger to cheap memory
	( and show that the memory works in other boxes
