Cons: Installed this ram in my mid-2012 MBP, started the computer, no response. Put the original ram back in computer started normally. Tried the new ram two more times, still no response. Returning this item.

Pros: actually runs slightly cooler. i recommend Corsair.
Cons: 11-26-16::Update, months later: it died a slow death with increasing errors. after some forum readings, i Kernal Panic: found that this has been an ongoing problem for years with these memories. i get same error codes and behavior just like everyone else with macBP. both will work individually in either slot, so in that way good. then i thought it could be the slot itself. so i got out of my junk drawer some budget memory(nanya) saved out of an old pc-laptop 2x2gb, they work perfectly though only 4gb. Wow so it is not the slots! i tried again the Corsair and same result. i know it is not my puter now, so i got an RMA and sent it back to Corsair.
Other Thoughts: unlike some opinions in review that it does not matter this memory does not need to be Apple qualified, this is and has not hanged like the other one did. be sure to buy qualified memory and in this case prefix is CMSAxxxx... i have always recommended Corsair and will probably continue to do so. i am though a little miffed when i read this issue with CORSAIR has been around since 2006 in various forms. it is even mention on the Apple community forums. it is the same issue manifesting itself in differing forms: three beeps; 6002x error code; working individually. all same Kernal Panic profile. though it did run cooler my gut tells me it is still too hot in the area according to the temp app available from the Apple Store. the heat pipes are right below the memory slots so it could be an issue. so far so good withnanya sticks. i have always liked Corsair, but this is an ongoing problem it seems uniquely with Corsair i wish they address.
