I asked this question as part of another post, but I don't think that was the proper place for it. I had purchased ram from Trans Intl twice in the past and had no problems at all. I bought 2-2-2 memory, installed it, and the G4 recognized it a 2-2-2 100 mhz. Last week I bought PC133 2-2-2 from Crucial, installed it, and the system profiler recognized it as 3-2-2. When I called Crucial, I was told by the tech support person that it was indeed 2-2-2, and that Apple computers have a problem that makes them think the memory is 3-2-2 because the part number is misidentified by the system profiler.
Does the system profiler actually figure out what the latency of the installed ram is, or does it just assume the latency based on recognition of the manufacturer's part number?
