This review is from: HyperX 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model KHX16S9P1/4
Pros: See my other review here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104257
I ordered 2x4GB kit with heat spreaders, but received two that look exactly like this one here. I am not too happy about that, other than the fact the memory I have is kicking serious tale in everything I throw at it.
Cons: I would have preferred the heat spreaders that were advertised in the other set, but having this type with the small "foam heat dissipation strip", my laptop runs much, much cooler than the default 2x2GB set that came with my ASUS K52JT. I kid you not, the system used to run super hot, now it runs warm to the touch on all my games, especially running Batman: AC for six hours straight, small breaks. I am completely happy with this set, hands down the best purchase I made from here in years.
Other Thoughts: Original post if you don't want to click over:
Low Heat. My laptop gets nowhere as hot as it did with the old 2x2GB sticks that came with the system.
Missing advertised heat spreaders. However, there is a small strip of some heat dissipation foam along one side of the strips, and they must work considering how cool they are compared to the two sticks they replaced.
WEI went from 5.9 to 7.3. No kidding, this set of sticks is now the fastest product in my system, only the i7 shares the 7+ rating at 7.1, so now the memory holds its own and I get less bottle-neck. I upgraded for the sole purpose to play WItcher 2, which this system choked on, yet it still played everything else I threw at it. Now it plays Witcher 2 on Med-High settings and no choking and decent FPS since now the GPU is the bottle-neck, but it rocks, too, so all is well. FINALLY! They have done exactly what they were supposed to do and more, this system is far more stable than it was and I couldn't be happier.
