    Will there be any noticeable performance loss if I use 16gb of 1333mhz RAM in my mid-2012 cMBP instead of 1600mhz? I have two 8gb sticks that are 1333mhz that I would love to use if possible.

    On benchmarks, it shows differences.
    But on normal usage, you hardly know the difference.

    As above, I think very minimal under 'normal day-to-day' use..

    That being said, I have NO idea what your normal use may be.. :rolleyes:
