    Multicore or not, using higher bus speed memory will yield better performace overall.

    But, in the case of the OP, I would use the 1600Mhz memory sticks, same bus speed as the stock ones that come with that MBP model, as the performance gain by using the higher bus ones are very minimal. So I wouldn't risk the reliability in that case.
