I just wanted to pass along information on the RAM that I'm using in my G75VW-BBK5.
I purchased "CORSAIR VALUE SELECT DDR3 8GB 2x4GB" from Best Buy.
The part number is "CMS08GX3M2A1333C9". By adding these 2 SoDIMM modules the RAM increased
from 8GB to 16GB and the system has booted fine and is running stable.

Also added a second 1TB drivefrom WD into the empty slot and formatted it as "MBR".
It is also running fine.

I like the fact that this laptop has plenty of room inside to be able to do this.

I think by the part number you have given here you are down clocking your memory.
the stock memory in the Asus G75VW-BBK5 is DDR3-1600 CL11, what you added is DDR3-1333 CL9 (CMS08GX3M2A1333C9)

here is another thread that should shine some light on the memory click here (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?20084-Adding-RAM-to-G75VW-BBK5&p=150700&viewfull=1#post150700)
