I wondered if I should use the word 'fishing'. 'Hunting' would have been more accurate, at this point.

There's a big difference between 'hunters' and a 'fishermen'.

I started off by 'fishing' for suitable RAM. I didn't care who made it, nor the price. When I decided on buying Dell/SK Hynix RAM, it turned into 'hunting' for the price I was willing to pay.

Right now, I have 8GB of used Dell (2x2) & HP (2x2) SK Hynix RAM in my 3 second booter, and it works fine, but I don't like mixing RAM modules. It's an OCD thing.  ;D

Well I'm sure you could work in a 'blind Chinese cowboy riding a three legged greased melon' metaphor if you really wanted to, but....

Fishing will do :)
