Do these have the traces for ECC ?
I considered these after buying ecc sodimms for a laptop that didn't support ecc, the desktop does support ecc. And they are B die, so better than the hynix that's in the desktop.
"JET" has been around for awhile, they used to make budget motherboards and vid cards I believe.
custom small boards with cpu's soldered on.
I figure an adapter like this is bound to affect signal integrity, maybe you lose a few MHz on the max potential clock.

inexpensive? the cheapest I can find them for is 17$ plus 5$ shipping. which makes their purchase utterly pointless.
