So I bought a stick of $25 DDR4 3200 CL22 to match what my prebuild PC for my dad come with. The seller was a noob and sloppy, and he just wrap it in some bubble pack and then tape cardboard paper on the outside. I am a bit concerned that it may work fine now but then it will start having problems down the road. It is not my machine either so it is not worth the trouble shooting time down the road. If you were me would you just return it?

That sounds just like how Newegg has shipped RAM and SSDs to me (minus the cardboard).

Not a fan of it, but none of the memory modules ever had a problem.
