Default RMA'd Dual channel memory -> got back Triple channel kit?!?!?

This one is strange.

I had a kit of PNY XLR8 DDR3 memory go out on me several weeks ago, so I got PNY to issue me an RMA for it. So I sent the memory in, and I finally received it back today... only it's not what I sent in.

I sent in a 2x2GB DDR3 1600mhz CAS 8 memory.

I received back 3x2GB DDR3 1600mhz CAS8 memory.


I'm about to get on their support site about this, because although this is cool (but I don't really have the need for the 3rd stick), that means that the product that they sent back to me is not the same product as I bought from newegg, and thus, I cannot prove that I actually bought it.

Has anyone else had something like this happen to them before?

If you bought the memory from newegg all you have to do is look at your order history and show then the order where you got the dual channel memory.

I would just be happy with the free stick of ram, if you want to just order 1 more 2gb stick from newegg for like $25 and then u can have 8 gigs of ram.

I have 8GB of ram with another set. This 3rd stick means I now have a total of 5 sticks of 2GB DDR3 (10GB)
