Basically you got cheap ram, it doesn't have an SPD chip.

The spd chip tells the computer the specifications of the ram so it can configure itself automagically.

There is nothing wrong with not having it, it just measn you have to guess the settings.

Although having cheap ram may be unreliable, go for stuff that has atleast a 1year warranty, preferably 5 years.
