Finished my tests!
Pros: Passed memtests with flying colors. WEI went from 5.9 with 4gb RAM to 7.2 with 8GB of this G Skill. CPUZ reports 1333. Everything seems fine.
Cons: Although my slow 5400rpm hard drive bogs everything down, Windows seems to start up and shutdown a little faster now. I believe I see slightly increased performance all around.
Overall Review: Come on Newegg, how about a sale on a fast, cool running laptop hd of enormous capacity! OR a SSD deal that does not involve MIR! (just picked up a Sammy 1tb 9.5mm laptop hd for my DIR-685 router but it is also 5400rpm so no point in swapping)
For $22 a stick I love this RAM
Pros: The price was right! So far so good, I am currently running memtest and no errors yet. Next, I will run memtest86 just for fun but I don't anticipate any problems. I still need to check out my new Windows Experience Index numbers as well.
Cons: Corsair brand 8gb kits went on sale for about $6 more than what I paid for two 4gb G Skill modules a few days after I bought this. No biggy. Would probably rather have Corsair but so far this G Skill seems fine.
Overall Review: I am using 8gb of this RAM (2X4gb) in my Hp Pavilion 3050-US laptop (replaced 2X2gb Samsung RAM of the same specs). I am running Win 7 64. I did not buy this RAM as a 8gb kit (obviously) but that does not seem to matter from my initial tests.
