Is this legitimate genuine 4GB PC2-6400 ram chips?

Hi can you please tell me if these PC2-6400 chips are genuine Crucial memory? I just bought these 2, 4GB chips from eBay, and cpu-z (v.1.86) identifies them both as manufactured by Hyundai.

 

And these chips (pictured below) look different than the other SODIMMs I've seen in this forum verified as genuine, because these have 8 dark colored memory modules on each side, instead of 4. Genuine Crucial chips appear to only have 4 (albeit larger) dark colored memory modules each side.

 

Anyone able to provide some feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

@BriC I am sorry for the delayed reply. I just checked this part in our system and all the part numbers matched up. This part is legitimate and everything check out. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Re: Is this legitimate genuine 4GB PC2-6400 ram chips?

Thank you @

I do have 2 questions/concerns:

1) why is cpu-z reporting the manufacturer on these chips as Hyundai? All prior Crucial products I’ve owned have been identified in cpu-z as Micron or Crucial accurately.

and,

2) both chip slots show the same serial # (slot 1 and slot 2) in cpu-z. I have older Micron Ram and they change serial numbers between slots, however, this RAM is showing the same serial # across both slots (it should be changing)

and,

3) upon further inspection with cpu-z, the part number doesn't match the label sticker (see label pic in my earlier post in this thread). Cpu-z part # HMP351S6AFR8C-S6 (see below), and the label part number: CT51264AC800.C16FC (see above post picture).

Can you please re-verify that this is genuine, there are too many inconsistencies.

Thank you in advance for your time again!

@BriC Engineering confirmed these look legitimate. CPU-Z must be just be reading them oddly.
