Erm? I had a thread here explaining that my memory didn't work and I'd like to swap it but couldn't ... OCUK were invited to comment, and now the thread has gone! :confused:

I wasn't breaking the rules! Just discussing my rights as a consumer ... It's an issue that needs to be resolved. By the sound of it loads of people have brought the same motherboard and RAM combo as me:

MY-012-GS G.Skill 2GB DDR2 LA PC2-5400 (2x1GB) CAS4 Dual Channel Kit (F2-5400PHU2-2GBLA) (MY-012-GS)
£119.99 £119.99

MB-061-GI Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard (MB-061-GI)
£91.99 £91.99

... But it doesn't work! OCUK needs to at least inform people of this. I now have £125 worth of RAM I can't use!

I was thinking of the same thing.

I bet they deleted it! :mad:

All we want is an explanation to why it says compatiable when it clearly isnt.

This isnt too much to ask is it?

Cheers :)

Ok then!

Can we start a new thread asking....

"Why are the:
MY-012-GS G.Skill 2GB DDR2 LA PC2-5400 (2x1GB) CAS4 Dual Channel Kit (F2-5400PHU2-2GBLA) (MY-012-GS)
£119.99 £119.99

MB-061-GI Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard (MB-061-GI)
£91.99 £91.99
advertised as compatiable when they are not?"

Would this be ok?

Cheers :)

The old one was deleted! I'm not complaining about OCUK, the issue must be addressed though, I'm sure everyone else feels the same.

Have you tried going down your local Tesco and asking them why it says its compatible when it isnt, or maybe try your local police station, pop in and ask them, try your local bank as well.

I emailed them yesterday. Apparently I can't because it's been opened and 'used' :(

Oh is this you being sarcastic? Clever you are mate!

Ive always wondered how you get 16k posts on here! ;)

Look,this guy had/has a problem and it has highlighted a problem (or whatever you want to call it). The problem is on the advertising for the above items they say they are compatible with each other when clearly they are not.

All i am asking is for OCUK to clarify the situation!

No bashing of OCUK has gone and no RMA talk has been talked of by myself.

Cheers :)

I think the guy wants to know if anyone else has had the same issues and just bringing it to everyones attention. Nothing wrong in that. I suppose OcUK should check to see if there are problems with the items not being compatable. No need to go slagging each other off.

It's not looking good for me! This is the latest reply:


Dear ,

We do not cover incompatibles sir and the G.Skill memory has been well known on the internet as not being compatible with the Core DUO CPU's

Regards,


It's well known on the internet apparently!
