My late 2011 Mac Book Pro (2.2GHz Quad core Intel intel core i7) bought with
4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM 2x2GB.

I am looking to choose between the following : (I am keen to upgrade to 16GB RAM)
1.Corsair 2.Crucial

The one from Corsair has specification CL9 (9-9-9-24) 1.5v whereas
the one from Crucial has 1.35v

Is this voltage difference due to one being 1333MHz where as the lower voltage one from Crucial has lower MHz?


Corsair 16GB DDR3 1333MHz Mac Memory - Ebuyer

16GB kit (8GBx2) DDR3 PC3-10600 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.35V 1024Meg x 64 upgrades for MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011) Laptop/Notebook, CT3373696 from Crucial.com

Will both work in my Mac Book Pro [late 2011 model] if so which is the better one if price is not a factor?

Regards

Make it easy just purchase from Crucial. Purchase what they recommend. They have a good return policy as well.
