Can anybody tell me the difference between CL2 and CL2.5

When a timing is specified for a particular CAS Latency (e.g. CL3 = 5.0 ns, CL2.5 = 6.0 ns), that indicates the clock speed at which that CL is supported. In this example, the RAM could support CL3 at 200 MHz or CL2.5 at 166 MHz. Most RAM supports multiple clock speeds, with varying performance, hence this notation.

I find that 90% of the time when RAM is actually dead there are no beep codes. Typically the computer will boot up as usuall and will give no display. RAM has been the componant that has failed on me the most. It is the only componant I have ever recieved DOA as well.
This is true but it depends on the state of the RAM and the board.
I've seen a lot of Asrock boards that beep due to bad memory regardless of its state. Ironically enough, Asrock boards almost always complain at you about bad memory, yet Asus boards often don't.
A lot of boards just don't do anything with bad RAM though, unhelpfully they just sit there and play dead.
On occasion you may find that some older computers and/or boards will not talk to faster memory. You may find it won't talk to PC3200 memory but will only talk to PC2700 or PC2100.

You can try to RMA it but you may find that they're not helpful since you've essentially bought the wrong memory and so a restocking fee (typically 20%) will be charged if you do return it.
