    Hey guys, I got a nice early 2011 15" 2,2 i7 mbp with currently 8gb 1333mhz ram. Which set of ram should I get through eBay ? Obviously I'm going for the fastest, most reliable, and cheapest that this machine can handle.. Preferably from a EU dealer. Anyone have the answer? thanks :)

    Crusial or kingston has a apple ram wizard, they can help you find which ones you can use.
    Then use that product number to buy it cheap - but safe.

    Right..but when I do a search, it only shows the 1333Mhz versions..I know it supports faster Mhz ram, but are those ram faster than the 1333 ones? And what is the product number for the fastest ones? :)

    Get 1600 MHz 204-pin and up to 8 GB per module. As long as it meets those requirements, it will work. And then as low CAS Latency as possible - I believe CL9 is the lowest available for 1600 MHz.

    If you stick to Corsair, Crucial, or Kingston, you're guaranteed a good product.
