    Adding 8gb RAM to my G75

    Hello guys

    i have a g75 bbk5 - 8gb RAM


    I read the sticky of adding ram to the g75 and i pretty much understood everything and i dont want to downclock because i bought the wrong one i want to run on 1600mhz so id like to double check just in case before purchasing this 2x4gb from newegg.

    Below is my specs.

    Thanks in advance.

    it will work; just make sure they're seated properly.

    for faster boot and app load times, i would also suggest you get a SSD.

    Yep, the 8GB set from newegg should work well, that is the correct CL, and timing.

    yes, properly placed you can check out this video to get the idea.

    and don't worry about bad english (it's not my mother tongue, either); as long as we can guess the meaning that's fine; if not we will ask hehe

    Looks you are set! Just get a 2x4 GB matched set, don't worry too much about the vendor, though higher-quality brand-name is worth the money for the return policy if it doesn't work.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    it depends on your usage (for daily usage, some say even 8gb is too much); you might feel that there's no apparent improvements if you do not have something that actually make use of it.

    in your case, i think a SSD is a better investment. a decent SSD will do; it will bring you some 'major performance improvements'.
