Guys i've got extra money laying around and felt like i needed to buy something for my gaming notebook. The two memory sticks i'm looking at right now are

Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1866 HyperX Plug n Play Laptop Memory Model KHX1866C11S3P1K2/8G http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104259

and

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1866 Laptop Memory Model CMSX8GX3M2A1866C10 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233243

but not really sure which one to buy. I was leaning towards the kingston because of the heat spreaders but i heard that design was discontinued and that the corsair set had lower latencies

My system specs are

Alienware M14X R2

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3720QM @ 3.6GHz
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1600MHz
2 GB DDR5 NVIDIA GeForceGT 650M
Soundblaster Recon3di & Internal High-Definition 5.1 Surround Sound Audio
256 GB Crucial M4 SSD

Which one should i purchase & how much hotter will my laptop run with 1866 mhz sticks?

And what memory test program should I use to bench/test compatibility

yeah i just now inquired my older brother who builds computers and he told me the exact same thing. i'll get the corsair. thanks :)

would you recommend memtest86+ to check stability?



I like to think my grammar is proficient enough to piece together incoherently written sentences, but i can confidently tell you I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to convey here.

Also if you're asking if my CPU supports hyperthreading, yes it does. It's an ivybridge, so technically i have 4 virtual cores totaling up to 8 maximum cpu cores.

memtest is the gold standard . though these days personally i run a looped full 3dmark test overnight as well, recording system info in the background (cpu and gpu temp, fan speed, etc.) if there is an error
