Pros: Very fast, future proof*

Cons: 2nd gen i5+i7 only, can get hot, Not really worth the price

This RAM is great but is definitely on the expensive side but thats what you pay for the quickest speed. If you are looking for a bump in speed for your onboard HD3000 graphics this will do it...but only gives you about 5% extra at best in FPS. You can get 1333mhz or 1600mhz for much less and probably couldnt tell a difference in real time speed. These chips also get pretty hot even with the heat spreader on there so watch out.

This is definitely going to be used in my ultrabook as well and hopefully we will see a little better performance out of later chipsets designed around this speed.

*Only works with Gen 2 i5s and i7s*
