    The labels will be different. :p

    My order has shipped so I should have them early this next week. I'll report back after installing them.

    cheers

    Got the Super Talent 1333 RAM today. The RAM chips are made by Hynix:
    http://www.hynix.com/gl/index.jsp

    16 GB (4x4GB in single channel configuration) dropped right in and the MP booted in 30 seconds. I had a 3x2GB (triple channel configuration) previously which booted in 26 seconds. The slower boot time is consistent with the larger memory check in POST.

    For the curious, Geekbench dropped ~1% with the single channel (16 GB) config compared to the triple channel config.

    edit: The coupon code I listed in the original post has expired ............ but the price has dropped also.

    cheers

    It's not much of a saving compared to a true and tried brand like OWC.

    But thanks for the link nonetheless.
