Will Asus G55 work with 1866mhz ram or 2133mhz ram?

Hello does anybody know if I can upgrade my current 12gb 1600mhz ram into 16gb 1866mhz or possibly 2133mhz ram? I've heard storys about people buying corsair vengence 1866mhz ram only to have it revert back down to 1600mhz or somewhere around the 1700mhz range. I know the i7 is compatible with the ram speeds but im not sure if the motherboard used in the Asus G55VW will utilize the full 1866mhz or 2133mhz of ram.

P.S before you ask yes there is 2133mhz ram sticks for laptops. The Kingston HyperX KHX21S12P1K2 is supposedly it runs at 2133mhz or so NCIX says. Anyway it would be a big help if i know that my G55VW laptop can go beyond 1600mhz just to max out it's capeablilty. Im planning on using this thing for long term use.

no, unfortunately; it's on the other side of the mobo 😕


That is an unfortunate side-effect of the push for smaller, thinner, and lighter notebooks. Computers are becoming harder and harder to disassemble. 😞
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!

I agree with that. They could still make it user accessible, so that we can upgrade it.

Yeah, it's too bad the G75 is not setup like the G74!!!!
With the G74, you can access all four memory slots.

It's just a marketing technique, if they made it user accessable that would make them wanna drive the price up, or make the price of competator notebooks go down.
