Kingston's HyperX Plug-and-Play (PnP) is designed to improve the performance of your Sandy Bridge notebook or DIY system. Increase speed without changing system settings — PnP is preset for maximum speeds and easy to install. It's compatible with Generation 2 Core i5 and i7 and also with the latest Intel Sandy Bridge P67 and Z68 chipset. Plus it's backwards compatible without the plug-and-play functionality.
Pros: This ram runs at the universally accepted 1.5v, which is rather rare for tight latency ram. The price is insanely good, think you're getting 4GB low latency fast ram for that price! The ram even matches the newer black motherboards, which really looks nice when everything matches. Being 1.5v, it actually puts out less heat and uses less electricity, lending to longer life as well.
Cons: None, really.
Other Thoughts: I got this for my secondary system, a 3GHz quad core, and it runs at advertised speeds perfectly. This is all the ram that system needs, and it's right quick with this speed of ram. The only thing this isn't that I would like is actual black instead of dark charcoal grey heatsinks, but I buy first for functionality and second for aesthetics.
