I used it recently, and can attest to its goodness.
My motherboard suddenly decided to stop working - a good month after the
last bit of fresh hardware was added to it. memtest86 spotted the
problem, but only just. My memory subsystem was returning *RAKES* of
single-bit errors across the full address space, but only when you
accessed it in a certain way (98% of the way through test #5 in memtest86).
Turns out my board will no longer function correctly with all three of
my DIMMs installed, but is 100% happy with any two of them. My best
guess is a resistor or something got cooked out of tolerances. I let my
case temp creep a little higher than perhaps I should have. I haven't
tested with other DIMMs yet, nor clocking back the PC133 CL2 RAM to CL3
or even 100MHz.
