Neither module sets are the correct ones for your 2011 MPB. Your machine uses this:

2 - 204-pin PC-10600 (1333 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM

Which you can purchase either from Crucial or OWC. Both sellers are highly recommended. The SSD likewise can be purchased from OWC. LINK

Did you read what I wrote above? That memory you linked to will not work in your MacBook Pro. Use only the memory type and speed that I stated in my first reply.

Amazing how far some marketing fluff terms like "HyperX" will have that kind of effect on people.

Buy the modules that your machine is rated for, period. Even if you purchase a module that has a higher speed rating, doesn't machine your magically scales up to the higher speed. The effective speed of the module is determined by what your chipset supports.

If you think it will work, purchase the memory, install it, and let us know.
