Hello people I'm upgrading my ram from 4gb to 8gb but I can't decided between these two.

Crucial 8GB (2x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 1333 PC3 10600 Laptop Memory CT2KIT51264BF1339 CAS9 It is dual voltage and can operate at 1.35V or 1.5V

OR

PNY 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3-1333 (PC3-10666) CAS 7 It can only operate at 1.5V

What are you going to put the DRAM with, mobo/CPU some laptops are very picky about DRAM and voltages

That would be the Crucial ram at $68 bucks. The PNY ram is $90 but I believe since the CAS is lower on the PNY it would be better for overclocking right?

Because you use the laptop you can't OC all (CPU, RAM, GPU) they do disable the function in the BIOS.

Well i'm upgrading ram I currently have 4gb of ddr3 1333 cas9 Kingston 1.5V by the way but my processor can take the lower 1.35v. Do you think the PNY is worth the extra $22 bucks it for overclocking because if there isn't a difference i'll just go with the crucial saving money.

No way lol I can OC my A6 3400m using K10STAT these's babies have a lot of voltage room so its very possible on the A6 and A8 llano's. I only OC the cpu though.

WOW! I can't believe you don't know about these lol they've been out since 2011 and when there overclocked the cpu reaches the power of an Phenom II X4 which is amazing for a laptop

Best solution

As I said, don't really work with laptops, I've got one, but it's more of an emergency backup thing for when I'm in the field or flying somewhere, bout all I do with them is email and WP, occasionally some web design work, but still, very little...but already have a new toy in mind, just worked on setting up a Lenova All in one 27in monitor w/ touch screen, am thinking about a big touch screen

Funny you say that because after this upgrade I'm moving to desktop builds and I'll just keep this old laptop for parts. Thanks again by the way

I'll be going with the PNY ram because of the CAS being at 7 in all. I feel as it would better my OC on this laptop. Thanks for your responses guys.

Low CAS is always something you look for, when you get ready on the desktop, any problems give a shout
