    Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz on G73jh

    I'm about to change the ram sticks on my G73jh from bestbuy, I've got this one for 2 years now and I think it's about time to give it an upgrade, but was wondering how do I get the sticks to work @1600Mhz since the stock ones are working @1033Mhz, and I don't seem to find anything on the BIOS set-up, I don't know that much about modding and all that and this deffinetly has been making me think if the G73jh can actually run them @1600Mhz. Thanks for the help in advance people!

    The difference between 1333 and 1600 MHz is so small in real world applications that its impact will not be measurable in test to test (that is, the variance in test-to-test scores will be more than the gains made by going to 1600 over 1333). And if you stuff your G74 with 4 sticks of 1600, it will downclock to 1333 anyways. Forget about the 1600: you might as well light cigars with paper $$ you spend on this premium.
