What do the numbers on the ram chips mean?
Here before me, I have two almost identical chips:

1) PCS-5300S-555-12-E3
2) PCS-5300S-555-12-A0

What's the difference?

Part numbers need not have a meaning to them.

If you provided more information on what your goal is, I might be able to provide a better answer for you.
The E3 refers to a 1GB RAM strip.
The A0 refers to a 512MB RAM strip.
