No idea, but it does have a lifetime limited warranty, so, if you get it, keep the receipts!

OK. Pass on that memory

Most stuff that Micocenter sells under there name like ram is usually A-Data.

A-Data gets good reviews on Newegg
I should ask at Microcenter what is it.

Get 1600MHz memory. Corsair Vengeance has a nice sale on newegg right now.

^ don't get 1600 memory if you have sandy bridge 1333 will be fine, even if overclocking and you won't be able to notice the difference.

It probably is A-DATA but I prefer the corsair, they are generally considered a superior brand.

^ Yup that's all correct, though CL9 ddr3 1333 isn't bad if you only want a mild overclock plus if you're running cas 9 1333 1.5v a lot of sets will be able to hit cas 8 1333 1.65v or cas 9 1600 1.65v

My bad. I should have indicated that before. This memory is for a basic office AMD build under $500, no overclocking. I guess CL9 ddr3 1333 is more than enough for this.
Everything that you guys posted above is a good information, and I will use it for my next "gaming" build.

What I was trying to find out is how it is compare to a similar priced memory from newegg (mushkin or gskill). I wanted to avoid the hustle of shipping and MIR.
