Before purchasing this product, I looked at the reviews and saw that one reseller (GigaRAM) had been reported as shipping non-Mushkin RAM in place of the genuine product. I therefore contacted NEMIX prior to my purchase to make sure that they were selling genuine Mushkin products, and was assured they were. I ordered the RAM at a great price, and was extremely surprised when I received non-labeled RAM in a clear clamshell case with NEMIX RAM installation instructions (definitely not Mushkin retail packaging.) I contacted NEMIX and asked whether they had ANY Mushkin labeled product (since I had been told that they were selling Mushkin product), and was told that they didn't. I requested a refund, received a return shipping label, returned the product, and received notification that my refund had been approved a week later. However, NEMIX RAM is STILL offering Mushkin RAM (976609A) for sale, even though (according to them), they don't have Mushkin labeled product.

I did also contact GigaRAM to ask them whether they were selling genuine Mushkin product, and they responded that their product was labeled as GigaRAM product instead. They also asked me whether I really needed Mushkin product. I responded that when a product is advertised as being a Mushkin product, I expect it to be a Mushkin product. Shortly thereafter, GigaRAM took down their Amazon.com listing for Apple Mac Pro Mushkin memory (976609A).

The RAM I received from the seller GigaRam is not Mushkin RAM, and is branded under the name MemoryTen, Inc. Not cool.

Though it is not my desire to have RAM from three different manufacturers in my aging 2008 (3,1) Mac Pro, I looked up Apple's memory pairing guide for my particular model and installed it anyway - with the intention of returning it at the first sign of trouble.

After some initial problems after installation, the Mac Pro finally recognized all modules. I then sent the RAM through a 3.5hr long battery of stress-tests using memtest, which it passed without any errors.

# UPDATE 09/28/2013 #
###############

1x stick failed diagnostics at system startup. The machine now only reports 10GB of memory. Upon re-seating the memory, to see if it might resolve the issue, I noticed that this memory runs far warmer than adjacent sticks from another manufacturer.

This is why it matters that they're falsely advertising this memory as "Mushkin" brand:

---Real Mushkin RAM comes with a lifetime warranty.
---This memory does not.

I'll be sure to take this up with Amazon.

I have various Macs in the top end range, either PowerMacs or MacPros. I've ordered "high end" memory as well as "inexpensive" memory for my machines, and quite frankly, have not seen a difference between any other than price. I was looking at putting some more RAM in my MacPro, but didn't want to spend a fortune, so I looked every where online and found this Mushkin kit and ordered. I used standard shipping and received the product in 3 days. Installed without a problem (if you've ever installed RAM in your computer, you know what to do and how to do it). After install I started doing some RAM intensive work and had absolutely no issues, I've had the RAM in for about a week now still with no issues.
I don't foresee any issues with this product as long as the computer itself keeps within it's normal temp ranges, but then again, any computer component will have issues if overheated.
I just might have to order another 8GBs down the road for this price!

I was in need of more RAM on my Mac Pro and have no plans on buying a new one any time soon. I am happy with the performance this one has, so when I needed more RAM for a project, this stuff worked quite well with the RAM I already have installed. I might even buy another set here shortly since you can never have enough RAM! Anyhow, it is easy to install, the machine recognized it immediately and it has worked great. I cannot ask for much more.

Great memory, and reliable. Installed in a maxed out Mac Pro (i.e., worst case situation for heat generated as well as obstructions to air flow) which has been on 24/7 since purchase and haven't had a single failure to date.

Can't beat the price for bumping up the RAM in a Mac Pro.
Installed and recognized right away.

WARNING: The labels on the RAM are not facing the same way as the RAM you
probably already have installed, you just have to flip the RAM stick. Don't force it
in like I did and pop off a holder tab.

I have an 8 core Late 2008 Mac Pro and it works great on this machine. I spent 2 minutes to install the RAM. Was detected right away (I now have 16 GB) and has been flawless since. I will buy more to max out my system. Came with the correct heatsinks and package was labeled as Apple memory.

I looked everywhere for this memory but the prices hadn't dropped significantly over the past 2 years, it was still at a premium in all of the usual Mac places.

This memory met all of the Apple requirements and at a good price.
