I'd agree about their motherboard advisor. I've yet to find an advisor
that is as good as Crucials. If I'm after something specific for a
customer I generally pay the little bit extra and get Crucial memory,
especially considering they usually do free 2 to 3 day delivery. I just
went for the Aria memory as it was cheap and for my own laptop. I have
used other generic Aria memory in a couple of motherboards and it seems
to work okay although I'm not sure how well it would work in maybe a
Dell PC or something like that which may be a little bit more fussy.
