This review is from: CORSAIR 4GB DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Memory for Apple Model CMSA4GX3M1A1066C7
Pros: It doesn't weigh much.
Cons: It doesn't work.
Other Thoughts: I ordered two sticks for a 2009 Macbook (MC207LL/A). The original memory was rated as PC8500, and this RAM is, as well. I checked around in forums and product reviews and made sure it was compatible. The system will not POST with either stick in either slot, or with both sticks together. I've reset everything relevant that can be reset (
NVRAM, SMC, etc.), and I've reseated them both a million times. It boots fine with the original RAM, this was just an upgrade. Other people have had success with this RAM in the same model. Just waiting on my RMA.
Pros: This is a great case. It looks even more slick in person. It's lightweight because a lot of the metal is perforated for ventilation, but it still feels very sturdy. My favorite feature is the cable routing cutouts that line the right side of the motherboard mounting area. They've left enough space behind the motherboard to route bundles of even the thickest cables with very little trouble. No laying on the case to get the side on! If you've ever built with an Antec 300 or 900 this will seem familiar, but this is a much cleaner implementation of that type of layout. You don't have a million molex connectors in awkward places that you need to deal with, and none of those fan speed switches to hide away. There's a small cutout in the upper left corner of the mounting plate so you can run your 4pin/8pin motherboard power connector behind it. It's just beautiful.
Cons: None. It's really a fantastic design.READ FULL REVIEW
