    Try going to Newegg and Amazon reviews to see if other MBP owners with your model have reported success or failure with it.

    Good luck!

    I used to have those (blue ones) installed in my Early 2011 13" i7 MBP, however (and I don´t know why) the RAM was running at 1333 Mhz.

    The weird thing is that I replaced the HyperX with some Corsair Vengeance and they ran at 1600...

    I ran HyperX on my 2011 15" and it ran at 1600mhz with no issues.

    There are two models of HyperX and only one works correctly. One model has that pc feature where it auto clocks.

    The models ending in "G" work and the model ending in "GX" doesn't run at 1600mhz

    This is the model I ran with no issues.

    Is this faster than the 1333Mhz? Do you see an increase?
