ANAHEIM, Calif., Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CMTL, ( the industry leader for independent memory module compatibility testing announced completion of the 2013 semi annual audit  to identify EOL (End OF Life) memory modules BOMs (Bill of materials) that may still be designated as current each specific Intel server, desktop, and NUC platform approved memory list.

John Deters, CMTL President states, "The Intel approved memory module EOL audit helps to ensure that Intel customers will have reliable information about which modules listed on the specific motherboard or system approved memory module lists are still currently available for sale or can still be manufactured on request at the very least." Deters continued, "The primary concern is that a module still listed as current will actually be EOL and the customer will be convinced to buy a non tested and non approved module that is "form, fit and function equivalent" to the approved EOL module and has a "lifetime warranty." Most importantly, Intel will not support a memory issues unless the model part number with locked down BOM is listed on the platform approved memory list."
