Can I use ValueRAM to upgrade to 6GB?

iFixIt offers this to upgrade my a1229 to 6gb, but I was wondering if Kingston ValueRAM (which I already have), would also work. It is exactly this:

Thomas I don't see a problem in the specs are the same. That said sometimes computers are picky about ram, Since you already have the ValueRam stick I would try it and see if it gives you any problems. Good luck.

I have used (and often prefer) ValueRam from Kingston. In the "old days" I would never bought any other RAM than Kingston. Seems though that newer Macs are happy with all kinds of brands. Or they make RAM more compatible I guess.
