I'm using Kingston RAM as well, 1333MHz 204-pin DDR3 and it's not given me any problems.

thank u for your answer.i've just read some bad feedback in other forums relating this model of ram, thats why I want to be sure before than putting it on my mac.and also, there is already 4G of ram on my macbook pro as 2x2 . As I now have this 8gb of ram, I am planning to increase total amount of ram up to 10 gb as 2 + 8. How do u think it ll work without any issue?

I also should mention that kingston has another series for mac computers but it's difficult for me to find in my country.even if I find, it's really expensive.ram which is reason for me to open this thread is not for any exact kind of notebook.so I thought it may be used for pc and for mac.i hope your one also something like this and not a ram which is manufactured just for mac by kingston.

I just bought the variants that were made for Windows.

RAM is RAM; there's no such things as Windows or Mac RAM.

If you aren't using in matching pair, you are losing the dual channel advantage, but it won't matter for day to day use. Only if you need to squeeze every bit of performance out of your computer...
