Continuing to clear out my garage... I have to raise more money that I thought if I want to order the iPhone XS without the wife knowing how much it cost me....




I have the following laptop SO-DIMM's -


4GB Samsung PC3L-12800 $25 each (Have about 20pcs)


4GB Mixed brands PC3-10600 $25 each (Have about 10pcs)


2x 750GB 2.5" Hard Drives $20 each?


I also have a 500GB WD Blue SSD 3D NAND drive I have been using as a El Capitan restore drive for old Mac's $120?


Pickup from Hamilton or $5 courier.

Hey there, do you still have some 4GB Samsung PC3L-12800's? I'm looking at two for an old macbook late 2011 model. Are your selection mostly tested as working?

Hey - I pop them in a Dell laptop and run the built in diagnostics to test them. I've had a couple of Crucial fail but all the Samsung have passed.


I was under the impression the 2011 took the 10600 speed modules though? And it was the 2012 that was 12800. Could be wrong.....

Officially yes, but since the 2011 macs have sandy bridge cpus in theres quite a few reports of 1600Mhz memory being detected and working well. The 2010 ones weren't as lucky and iirc those don't support it.



Some issues with G.skill memory but not samsung. I think it was to do with voltage support, since DDR3L (PC3L) by spec needs to support 1.5v I think it'll be alright.
