Regarding the heat, since these are 1333 (667x2) @ CL7 they will run hotter than the CL9 modules.
I would actually be going from 3gb - 4 gb. **yeah I skimmed on ram and video memory when i bought my M17 to bring it in under my spending limit at the time**
But anyways, back on topic, I know faster components will run hotter, but my question was based more toward will the excess heat be a great problem and cause crashes or failure. Again my bad porr wording on my part.
I will also be purchasing a HD. Im just deciding between dual WD Scorpio Black 500gb 7200rpm 16MB cache Sata 3 and dual Seagate Momentus XT 7200rpm 32mb cache Sata 3 hybrid. But im leaning toward the WD cause i have read some some bad reviews reguarding the firmware on the seagate and crashes.
