Is the 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 2133MHz SO-DIMM Low-voltage 1.35V laptop memory kit (2x 8GB) safe for my G751JY? Can the MB handle 2133MHz? I know I would have to take out the "Hidden" memory to use this at 2133MHz but it is safe to run it?

I've been running 4x8GB sticks in a JL and a JY for quite some time. Popped out the old, put in the new SPD picked up and timed it perfectly. 100% stable.

Used kit F3-2133C11Q-32GRSL

And your computer show 2133MHz and was there any noticeable change in speed? I've seen a video on taking it a part. Was it really hard?

I was concidering this kit for my G751JT because it has better timing than the g-Skill kit don't know if it would work but i guess it should!

WOuld like to know too if it's worth it to replace 1600Mhz with 2133 on a laptop..

I did see that video and its going to be a life saver for when I take this thing apart. I saw the difference between the old and new, granted they were on two different systems so its not 100% accurate but it still what a good jump. I just wonder if its noticeable. If things load any faster or seem more responsive or if my just buying into a number so to speak.

Honestly, Id doubt you see any real performance boost with just swapping 2x8GB sticks. I went to 32GB and noted performance increases in certain applications that are memory intensive, particularly video editing and rendering but for the average user you are buying a number and bragging rites.

The teardown video is plenty descript enough. The only real difference is the bottom is deeper for more air movement. You wont be even messing with that for the RAM. Taking the screws out is pretty generic but good hints on how to pop the top without breaking it or leaving tampering tracks all over! Same principles apply to the G752 as well, its just a little harder because the clearance between the bottom of the display and the top of the keyboard is very little. To pop the top on the G752 you have to lay the display all the way back after you pop the tab in the back.

Well, I would be changing out 16GB of 1600MHz for 32GB of 2133MHz. I could just do 32GB of the 1600MHz and save $100, but I'm really hoping that increasing my ram by 533Mhz might give me a performance jump. Plus it sounds cool lol, but I'm just not sure if it will be noticeable at all.

A lot of times the biggest reason of all for doing any modifications from factory stock pans right back to the same thing. "Because I can!"

I would want to use that over G-Skill just because it Corsair. But i'm not sure how well it works

Found this in the big memory thead so no, I guess I wouldn't get Corsair in this case :(

kingjezdi, Corsair does, but they messed up early on with the G750, and sold SPD 1.5v memory as "tested at" 1.35v memory - the G750 reads the SPD and uses that so it actually ran as 1.5v memory in the G750, messed up a lot of G750 owners, so I have stayed away from Corsair and the Vengeance memory that was the problem.

G.skill has been reliable and true for the many years I have used it.

Many others have reported using the 1866mhz and 2133mhz memory in the G750/G751 successfully, with real performance improvements

Update: Corsair is still doing the SPD 1.5v but *tested at 1.35v" thing, here it is on their own site in their own Tech Specs

Does anyone know if this is any better than the G.Skill? I knw the G.Skill has been tested pretty well through this forum but I have not heard about this ram

Ive heard of one user thus far that has installed 4x8GB sticks of the kington hyperex DDR4 2400Mhz in a G752VY and reported its running well. But thats a different platform. I can personally vouch for the Gskill 4x8GB DDR3L 2133 in two G751 Machines JL and JY running at full speed.

Personally speaking of course Ive just never been a big fan of Kingston products. Seems everytime Ive tried them from RAM, to jump drives etc I had issues so I quit trying.

Most of what is tried and true can be found here
