My System Specs

Default A-Data RAM

I'm curious about these guys as I haven't heard much about them.

They've got some nice inexpensive (relatively speaking) triple channel DDR3 kits out.

Probably the cheapest 1600MHz 3x2 kit I've seen yet is this one:
NCIX.com - Buy A-DATA AD31600G002GU3K 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 9-9-9-24 Triple Channel Memory Kit - AD31600G002GU3K In Canada.

Anyone have any experience with these guys?

I'm more inclined to go with Mushkin or Corsair, but we're getting close to a $200 price difference here.

So much stuff out there is spit out of the same factory and rebadged by different vendors I'd be surprised if this is not identical to a few of the expensive brands.

$200 for a heat spreader.

I've used adata memory and have no problems with it, nothing enthusiast.

They are trying to make a splash in Canada and North America in general. That is why you will see reviews of some of their products here on HWC in the coming months.

Well Im not even close to a RAM expert but when I buy a new part I check out online rivews. So my sugestion would be to check out some online rivews before you desided on it. Persionaly tho I would stick to a known brand for the time being

A-Data has made some kick-arse RAM, more popular in Europe/Asia. Many records on XS have been set using A-Data. I wouldn't hesitate to grab some, if the price(and warranty) was right.

Edit: Here's their website.. if you're interested in the RAM, browse around their site first.
