I picked up a refurbished Lenovo X230 Tablet recently and decided to grab another 4Gb stick of memory for it. Went to the local Fry's and bought a Crucial stick with model number CT51264BF160B on the box. You could see the SO-DIMM in the box, and it had a Crucial sticker on it. (Buying at Fry's is a mess-- the clerk came back with my order and thought I had bought a two-DIMM set of Patriot RAM, which is clearly not what I wanted, let alone what I was paying for) When I pulled it out of the packaging, there was the Crucial sticker on one side, and another sticker for Pacific Sun Memory on the other. I was under the impression that Pacific Sun is their cheap-range RAM, but perhaps it's just an intermediary supplier that Fry's sources Crucial stuff from. Their website sucks and provides no convincing proof of that. Loading up CPU-Z shows a SPD tab with no vendor info and a serial number of FFFFFFFF, which seems a little weird for name-brand RAM. Anyone using that module know if this sounds sketchy?
