No joy for us G73jh owners though.. :(

Part III (Testing the older G73JH)

Well, this part was more of a disappointment. I opened up the G73JH and swapped out the memory for 8GB of the HyperX ram. After figuring out how to get it all to boot with Dual mode, I got it running… and the system sets the RAM to 1333 mode. And it didn’t help much with overclocking. In fact it was a little less stable than my Kingston 1333 RAM modules.

While Kingston says these modules are “backwards compatible” the Gen 1 chipsets only support memory up to 1333, so the JH sets the 1866 RAM to it’s highest known compatible setting: 1333. I was hoping the memory would remove the limit in OC by being able to work at higher speeds, but it seems the memory wasn’t my limiting factor.

So if you were thinking of 1866 speeds in a Gen 1, I’m sorry to say you’ll need to upgrade to Intel SandyBridge.
